Re: baadpuppy's bus... unleashed

Shucks, I'm glad you guys like it, heh, I was only kidding about "The Stowaway".

I kinda think they should be named to match their personalities, I know mine is.

@ Ezbme: "Blue Lagoon" comes immediately to mind. I'll be watching your build, so maybe something else will come to mind...lemme think on it a while.

I'm sure as you work on/with your bus, it will reveal it's true name to ya, just ask anyone else here!

Re: baadpuppy's bus... unleashed

I'm not sure how well 'Blue Lagoon' is for the bus. Does the engine flood alot? Does the roof leak? Has it been parked somewhere were a river/lake/pool has suddenly tried to swallow the bus?

I think you were saying that it was acting like a PITA, Call it the 'Blue Meanie'. Could call it 'Happyness', but it's not a BlueBird...

Yeah, been a busy month.

This week, my goal is to start the serious demo on the old motorhome. I'm hoping to have the roof and walls off, the rear end cap removed, and the front end cap sliced below the windshield by the end of the coming weekend. I also want to have the floor gone from behind the driver's seat on back.

I've got a guy lined up interested in the 2 A/C units, and I definitely need to get them off the roof. Would be doing that tonight except the clouds are threatening to open up any second now.

I'm hoping to put the RV door on The StowAway. The existing door has got to go.

So, hopefully lots of updates coming this week.

Oh, that's just her stuff. lol

I haven't seen for myself yet, but I suspect the volume of clothes approximately equals the volume of the vehicle.
