Tang,

Yeah, the cold makes it hard for me to use my fingers at times. It's not like the bitter cold of New England, but this weather does slow me down. Heck the kids were trying to get all the outside projects finished just to get inside the bus and out of that raw wind and spitting rain yesterday.

I finished cleaning the aluminum air filter to the heater in the front of the bus. Monday will be to clean the heater itself and get some paper filters to fit inside the front fascia and vacuum the sills above the windows.

Blanking the rear windows will be for when I have weekends free to do that. Working Sundays from 0300 to 1500 hours puts a crimp in those plans for now.

Pics to follow.........

YAY! I can finally update! Went out to Heavy today. Can't upload pics, but I have modified the rear red lights to ambers and they are hooked up to the turn signals! YAY!! Wife and son helped with blanking out the rear windows two weeks ago. We're getting a major shot of cash at the end of this week so we can now get going on the build! Hopefully pics will be uploading sometime soon!

Going to drive her around to get quotes on some work tomorrow! Looking forward to getting her built.

Looking good, great progress, slow but steady. Hope you can get a lot done before the heat sets in.

Well, lemme try another pic.

I took off the outer sheet metal to the hat channel so I can get the correct gauge metal to blank out the side windows and make her look a bit more "professional" in the build. I did a quick shot of paint to prevent rust in the meantime.......

Does the metal cover for the hat channel have screws or rivets up under the drip rail at the top, or does it just slide up under it?

It was a friction fit, just pulled right out after I removed the screws in the middle.
