Congrats on the bus, looks good so far . We've had ours for a couple years now and it's nice to be able to just hop in and go .

We have to clean out diesel tank soon as hubby gets to feeling better .

Got some pics of the bus after skinning the windows and a couple coats of primer. Need to address the roof rust spots ASAP! I will try and get to that tomorrow...

Nice! Looks like you're making some progress! It's good to see another flight engineer on here. I actually kind of miss New Jersey sometimes too.

Re: Haulin' Toyz - '85 GMC Skoolie in NJ

Thanks Matt - unfortunately, the progress I am making is a little too slow for my tastes. I'm the kinda guy that wants to build a garage in a weekend, and I don't like to stop until its done. But, with the kids starting school this week and work, it's been hard to find the time... I did get to the rust spots on the roof with POR-15 (I know there's better products, but I got this for free), and yesterday I got the roof sanded, the high flashers off, and the kids finished taking the rub rails off. Today I will try and get a couple of coats of rustoleum gloss white on the roof. The weather is perfect today, too! I'm thinking - when I put the flashers back up, I will just put all the reds on the back, and wire them in with the brake lights. If anybody knows why this wouldn't work, I'd appreciate your ideas as always. I'll have more photos soon...

Re: Haulin' Toyz - '85 GMC Skoolie in NJ

I got two coats of white gloss on today, turned out really good! One thing at a time with this bus... Now it's time to move on to the back door, fill in holes from the rub rails, and get the sides prepped for paint. Stay tuned...

Re: Haulin' Toyz - '85 GMC Skoolie in NJ

In my opinion nothing looks better on a skoolie than getting rid of the rub rails! that is going to look sharp! Nice progress so far...

Got the double door in the back done today, works great - can't wait to load these bikes on board! Lots to do though, first...

Re: Haulin' Toyz - '85 GMC Skoolie in NJ

No more pictures today, but i did get the 8-way flashers rearranged. All the fronts are amber flashers, and all the rears are red. I ran new wires up from the brake lights from either side. I am going to look into changing at least two of the fronts into spotlights, but that's for much later!
