at least tyou arent having the endless cold and rain summer that we seem to be having here in ohio (and have for the last 3 years!!!.. this is the 4th cold and rainy summer in a row... ..the high temp yesterday was 67... today maybe we make 70 and rain all day)..

fortunately im building my new driver heat / air conditioning system for the bus in the garage so the bus can stay in its storage unit dry till im ready to install it..

yeah that doesn't sound too fun. I'm in southern MN and its been great, hovering around 75 the past couple days with almost no wind. Only downside to good weather means I'm working, only days I'd get off now are rain days and weekends.

2 Months later, the raise, the transition, and the skinning is almost complete. We need to finish up with seam sealer, rivets, body filler and pick up one more sheet of metal.

More angles.

Tango, I'm a wood guy too, and my only comment is.......wow.

Now I'm thinking of doing my entire interior in cement......just need to budget another $20K in suspension upgrades.

LOL! Ya...best of luck on the suspension thing but it would make for a "solid" ride.

The bench I am currently working on will wind up at about 5000 pounds.

That bench tango made really is something else, a work of art. The city im in now has a sculpture walk and if that was in the sculpture walk it''d be one of the best ones for sure.

Fuel filter is changed as well as draining the tank, and putting new fuel in the whole system. Runs perfect with new oil/fuel filters. Next are the tires.

It is finally all covered up, with the exception of the bottom piece of the back door, and the front emergency light holes.






We just now need to go over the holes and seams of the metal with body filler to give it a smoother look.
