Re: Camp Never Rest Mafia Wagon! 1979 bluebird

As of last weekend Camp Never Rest was able to get two new fron windows in the bus, and create central air in the bus! It was a challenge, but we got it! At some point I will post pics of how we did it!

Next we have to hook up the ceptic... and get the water running! Getting closer, getting closer!

We posted an updated video of the inside of our bus, it gives the general idea. We will be posting another one next week with an audio walk through... we had sound problems on this last one!

go to: www.campneverrest.com

Check it out and let us know what you think!

Thanks,
Mike

Re: Camp Never Rest Mafia Wagon! 1979 bluebird

Ok,

I have added a couple exterior pics of our bus....

1. We have a sheet metal guy that is going to attach sheet metal to the outside to get rid of the school bus look
2. Also have a graphics guy that is going to design a logo for our group on the outside!
3. The iside is about done... got the water all in, electricity wired, central air, and soon heat.
4. Check out the video on www.campneverrest.com

Just a side note, this project has been a ton of fun, and if it were not for our group of guys, it would have been a mess! We have all worked together, with creative and fun ideas! So, with that the Journey continues!

-Mike

Re: Camp Never Rest Mafia Wagon! 1979 bluebird

A question about the plywood window inserts. It is a lot easier for me with my shop abilities to use ply instead of metal to fill the holes on my project. What do you think of the idea of using a good grade of plywood with a thick layer of fiberglass resin on the outer side to act as water proofing and a base for the primer and paint to follow?

I used 1/2 inch plywood bonded to FRP for my window 'fillers'. I could only find the textured FRP at the time so I just glued it to the plywood backwards and used the smooth backside as the good side. Just be sure to paint them because FRP has no UV inhibitors and potentially degrade over time without being painted.

FRP being the same stuff you glue to shower walls? I never thought of that!

Thanks!

Also, love the blue birds!!!
