Nice fix on the solar panel.

Good score on the dinette table.

Your bus is looking good.

I have a 91 Wayne, so seeing the front was cool. The defrost channel looks great painted brown, one of the next things on my list. Looking good!!

Yup! They seem to be pretty decent buses. Then again, I don't have much to compare to, lol... You ever need help with wiring behind the console, I could maybe help you. I redid mine and figured out what everything was.

Looks great! Nice job on the solar panel! Any idea on output before and after repair? I'm hunting for broken ones myself but worried they'll be crap.

Yep!
How I made my screens:

I ripped 3/4 inch strips of cedar 1X8 boards. I did that on the table saw.
Then, I glued and screwed them together. I measured the openings where they fit.
Next, I stapled metal screen material to the wooden frames.
Finally, I used pure silicone caulking to adhere them to the opening.
I left a small gap of no silicone at the bottom for draining rain.

The screens are not very pretty, but let me assure you that they are fully capable staying on the bus while traveling.







I did remove the air conditioner before traveling with the bus.

the solar panel is still drying in some places, i tested the panel when i bought it, and i think i have the output written down somewhere. i know it was 22v and i think 4 or 5 amps. keep in mind that was in the wintertime. i will let you know once its set up. i found this one on ebay typing "cracked solar panel". there were a whole bunch in there. im going to check for a second one soon.

Accordion, you screens look great and sturdy. couldn't find any metal screen material, or i would have used it. i think the brackets im using are overkill.
