Looks like you found your calling. You could be making a profit from some old copper pipe and labor time.

As usual, it seems that it takes far longer to do anything than it sould.
At some point Keys were lost and our ride home got stuck....
The interior of Dirty Canadian just keeps getting worse. We bolted in a dresser thing in front of the bed. It was too wide and hung over into the walkway beside the bed. This is what the owner of the bus wanted though....
Dirty canadian II is going to be done my way.



The CB got mounted....with the handy-mans secret wepon.
Yeah, i forgot the mounting bracket....there seems to be a comon theme here.


Brand new 3000 watt power inverter and solar charge controller.


Dirty canadian has this extra fuel filter....#2 doesent



The bus looks preatty big from this angle.


This picture was taken while standing on the roof of dirty canadian.
That Uhaul there is what we were going to get rail road ties with to make a parking pad....until we got it REALLY stuck. 50000 lb recovery strap here we come!
The bus Waaaay in the distence is dirty canadian II


This is whats inside Dirty Canadian II right now.

NOTE: From now on I Will refer to "Dirty Canadian" the green bus and "Dirty Canadian II" as the white bus.


Now, actual news...

Not a lot has happened to the buses since the last update, nothing actually, i just figured that i would show what i have been up to.

First off I was away for 3 weeks. Some of you might know where this is...


First I did some work for a framing nailer and a sheeting stapler. This occupied 2 weekends.




And then I had to demolish my old playhouse



Here is news in relation to the buses.
The plan for the green bus is... It will Get re tuned to 210 hp, a cooling system upgrade, 345 watts of solar power and have the inside reworked some and a store bought 15000 lbs hitch so it can tow this... (with a Tacoma inside!)



All the way to south America!
(not with me, the actual owner of all this stuff will)

And yes, we towed it with a 4runner in 4 extra low
don't worry only across the field!
Speaking of busses and four runners, you might ask " why did you not get work done in 2 trips to where the busses are parked?"
I was cutting and skidding trees to make a new parking spot for the red trailer and the uhaul. Took down around 15 trees and skidded them with the 4 runner and a piece of chain. Made almost 50 kmh through the feild doing that!

For the white bus a hitch taken from a Toyota 4Runner will be cut and re-welded to fit.
I will probably talk mostly about the white bus from now on as this is the bus I will be using.

What made it a pos?
The rot from salt and the kicker.... 301 gasser and a 3 speed auto!
It needed tires, breaks, batteries, gauges.... The list went on!
