Things have been slow, we're waiting on a welder, so we can fix the floor around the wheel well. This first one here shows how clean the defroster tunnel is now. we didn't even know it was white it was that dirty.

cleaning the drivers area slowly but surely. about 50% of the wiring there is speaker wire.

If anyone knows of some good sound dampening/fire proof stuff for the barrier between the engine wall and the interior let us know.

Also, if someone has some good suggestions on how to make that door opener handle/mechanism shine let us know as well.

this floor wont take to long to wire wheel out, not too bad for a 92.




how am i able to tell who made my transmission or the type, or gear ratio etc.. if i don't have the maintenance log records or any other papers? Pretty much the only thing i have is the plaque on the inside of the bus which just lists the GVWR and pass count. any advice would help. (not that anything is wrong with it, i would just like to know.)

Most (but not all) trans have an ID tag attached. Can be a bear to find under the grease & grime but worth a look.

Not sure about other makes but Allison is pretty good about documentation right on the tranny. Here is mine, of course it will be harder to find after a few years on the road, but...with a Serial Number you can get all the specs from the factory. Good luck.

Today was a great find for the bus (if they work out.) As we were on our way to work we had spotted two chairs that definitely came from an automobile of some kind. We did not have time to stop and check them out before work, but they were only a few blocks away so on my lunch break i went down to look at them, and threw them in my car. To our luck they were free.


Here is the captains chair

Then the passenger chair

Fine thrones! They look plush. Do they have a swivel base?

It's a good feature. Depending on your layout, it could mean two lazy boys while parked!

Today i found out with more inspection of the seats that they are a "flexsteel" brand, which before finding these seats i seen them run around $500-$800 just for one. So i cant wait to clean them up, or reupholster them. They are pretty clean too, not even a cigarette hole or burn mark of any kind!
