Kudo's on your bus and double kudo's for keeping your tribe tight, that's a rare thing these days. I raised a daughter and two sons and we were very tight. Two are on their own now (kids and married) and one has a leg out the door and I miss them terribly.
I like what you did in the drivers/co-pilot area with the carpet and transmission cover, I've been looking at that area awhile now wondering how I was going to finish it out. Now I know!
Did you glue the carpet right to the cabinetry? I was thinking of gluing it to 3/8" plywood, wrapping it around the edges, and then screwing the carpeted panels to the cabinetry with washered screws so it's removable, the tops and rim of the side councils will be stain grade. I'm going to do the same thing to the drivers side "council" that covers the heater, with cut out's for a register and the anti-freeze control valve. I built the passenger side council to match, excepting the control panel for what switches remain. I should also have enough room in the new panel for my Ranger ham/cb rig and relater com gear.
There isn't a bus on this forum I haven't carped idea's from!
