Certainly put the board in Dashboard! Do you have any plans on dressing up the rest of the dash rather than the all black?

lol. i do have more plans, just again not entirely sure how to go about it yet but im getting it done one step at a time.

this is a sample from a build i spotted awhile ago. Random album picture on this site came in handy again. gotta take the router off of the router table if i want to router those cup holders in there, probably will be too lazy to do that and just buy a cup holder attatchment.

This is another product I have used on direct sunlight art applications and it has held up incredibly well. They know their stuff. Your windshield will provide some protection from UV light, but not enough to keep it from yellowing in a year or so.

it really does. even just removing that long door handle that went from driver to the door opened up huge amounts of space up front.

sweet, because the dash will be one of a few pieces of wood receiving constant daylight, and i need to know as many products as i can.




Bought some of our marker lights, others on order(all will be LED). Here are 5 red ones for the back, 3 are going up top in the middle, and the other 2 will be on the sides near the top in the back. then there are 2 yellow ones in the picture that will be on the sides near the top but in the middle of the bus. That bar with 3 will go directly up front on the original front end cap in the middle, where the old marker lights were. Then I have 3 over the cab lights on order that will go on top of the transition. A couple more left to order but getting there so i can pull the wires through before the plywood closes it off.


only the upper 1/3 of the walls left.



view of the future living room. Temps here in MN got up to 60.

I love the dash. But with all of the cup holder it looks you have a bit of a drinking problem. Lol
