Re: CAMO-MONSTER MY FIRST SKOOLIE

Ok, why does (*enter most disliked vehicle manufacturer of choice here*) put that electrical grid in the rear window of their vehicles?. . .

. . .to keep your hands warm when you're pushing it in winter!

Re: CAMO-MONSTER MY FIRST SKOOLIE

THIS IS THE AIR SYSTEM ON THE BEAST.

WHICH IS A 1971 CHEVY LONG BOX ( k-10/k-20 ) ON 17-40-15.

NOW THAT I HAVE THE AC BRACKETS FOR BIG BLOCK CHEVY.

I'M GOING TO PUT ON BOURD AIR SYSTEM ON THE SKOOLIE.

IT WILL PUT OUT 150psi AND THE TANK'S ARE GOING TO BE OLD
PROPANE TANK'S THAT NO ONE WILL REFILL.

BECOUSE I BOUGHT A 3/4" INPACKED GUN FOR DOING THE LUGNUTS.

Re: CAMO-MONSTER MY FIRST SKOOLIE

Thanks for the details on the louvers - I'd seen them around here on Mack Dump trucks, but never on a skoolie. The skoolies around here that do block off the radiator use a canvas snap-on grille cover, that can be zipped up & down in the middle like a sweater. (Some of the po' folks use cardboard.) That means if the bus heats up during a run, the driver has to get out and change it. I expect that they pretty much stay the same all month, except for unusual weather. I'd love to have automatic or driver-controlled louvers in the cold.

It was a little bit unsettling the first time I saw a Mack coming toward me snap its grille open as towered over my car. It was probably like seeing the teeth on Matt's bus coming at you.

Re: CAMO-MONSTER MY FIRST SKOOLIE

Well hi.
There here's a little update.
I finally got all the parts to get
my compressor mounted for my
air compressor and for tanks I'm
using 4 old propane tanks so I
I should have enough Valium to
run my 3/4 inpacked gun or what
ever I want to do. But I still have
to plum it all in yet.
