Re: Our Bus Conversion Project

i got my bus just a week and a half after you bought yours and then had to go out of town for two weeks and not work on it at all. excuses aside you are killing it on the conversion and i hope to catch you pretty soon as the "in laws" are leaving today and ill have plenty of time before school starts to catch up.
anyway looks like it is going great and keep up the updates.

Re: Our Bus Conversion Project

Well...I don't want to lose the momentum. Things are coming along fast. Hope I can keep it up! Having the A/C really helps now. After 2 day of having it we are already spoiled. Now, when I go out to cut wood it feels so hot.

Nahhh... your work will slow down with A/C because you won't want to step outside to cut any wood.

Like today...I didn't get much done.
