Re: Car hauler / RV school bus

HI Steve x Very cool Modification thanks for sharing, I need to see your Bi fold rear doors up close and personal.

I am Mentally begining the same project for my Rally car/ hauler. Semi or Tractor doors up front and either rollup or bifold in the rear.

Do you have more photos of the door aspects any where./?

Mike

Re: Car hauler / RV school bus

Your bus looks good, I have done one and have my second almost done.. YOu can go to my website parkerchassis.com and look at pics of them. They might give you some ideas. I made a whole new rear door that serves as the ramp. It worked pretty good. Good luck, Dan

Re: Car hauler / RV school bus

Dan Your web site is great, I have been there... Look in the news section right?

If I remember Fool bus built by a redneck...... or

When you chopped your frame did you put the top of the frame roughly at the bottom of the bumper, then miter off the bottom portion of the frame.

I am most likely going to do the same as you then skin the door with the bus skin.

Do your boxes go all the way across?

Mike

If all goes well, this will be a link to Dan's bus:

http://parkerchassis.com/shop/Foolbus.htm

And you guys realize you need to pay me royalties, right?




On mine, I took only a small wedge out of the frame, because I wanted to have enough frame left for a stout trailer hitch, and also not lose any ground clearance. Come to think of it, I did not even cut an actual wedge out, but simply cut a slot, and then forced the upper part down over the lower like the blades of a pair of scissors. Not building a watch here!

I also notched the crossmembers that are part of the floor so that the surface of the floor is all the way down on the frame at the rear.

Happy New Year!
