Abominable Snowbus

I'm sure you guys have all seen it, so I won't bore you with a lot of dialogue.

1994 Ford B700, Cummins 5.9L 12v, Allison Trans probably.

Oh yea, and I bought it for $1000.00 USD. Suckers.

Nice bus, I'm jealous of your location though.

Great bus.

I loved my Ford B700.

Well built bus.

more destruction, of the bus and my lungs:





This is the point where I decided to use my brain:




Also, those rivets get pretty hot when you've been grinding on them...beware:



Damn thing got into my glove and it took me a while to get it out.

until next time, cheers!

Is this mold in the insultation?

If so, your mask isn't enough, you need a respirator like this: http://lghttp.28308.nexcesscdn.net/8...rator-mask.jpg

Or something similar. Of not, you're ok! ;)

Doesn't appear to be mold. Fortunately, I have the bus parked and am doing the renovation at my buddy's shop. He happens to own and operate a carpet care and fire, water, mold restoration company.

So, on top of my mechanic/woodworking tools that I have stored here, I have free reign access to dehu's, a ton of chemicals, an enormous air compressor (I have my own air tools), and a media blaster/ hvlp sprayer....along with top of the line resperators should I require.

I'll have him put his eyes on it to be sure, but this is a high mountain Colorado bus via west Texas, so I think I'm probably good.

Cheers,

Matt

So, the dance of 1,000 rivets is nearly over. Got the roof ceiling down this weekend.

And about half of the rivets on the walls are ground out. I'll take the cold chisel to those this week in the evenings.

But, before all the work...play time:



I was pissed, I broke my flyrod right before we got into the boat...

But, this made it better:



Alright, on to the work:





Potter was not thrilled with the noise:





Until next time, Cheers!

Matt
