I spent some time on my ol gal this weekend. I have been screwing down the floor to the sheet metal. I found out the cordless drill sucks for this job so I switched to the old kind that tethers you to a cord. It worked great. I set my floor plan on the floor by laying the outline of the frame with 2x4's. I also added what will be my kitchen cabinet. I still need to add my counter top and sink. I have decided that nailing the hardwood requires to many tools that I can not afford. So I will be gluing it down.
More pics will be added later. Looks alot different then when I got her.
Yesterday I started her up and at first she hesitated. The temp was in the mid 40's. normally she just cranks with one turn over. This time I had to hold the key for 6-8 seconds. This shows me that the colder it gets the harder to start she will be. Good thing it stays warmer down south. I also noticed the windows leak a little but as we all know, these days Georgia doesn't get rain so I can fix that in a few weeks.
I will be moving into my bus very soon. This will be before I have it plumed or running on her own power system. It will be basically framed and the wall finished. I will be staying where I have shore power and use of a bathroom.
"Escapin' through the lily fields
I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded
Left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on
That's when it all began
There was cowboy Neal
At the wheel
Of a bus to never-ever land"
