Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Looks great - thanks for sharing! Please keep us in the loop as you button it up; I'm sure we are all interested to see how you construct the door. Any new progress on the interior?

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I'm stuck here, not sure what to do now. I do have a piano hinge coming because I dont like the setup now.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Piano hinge sounds like a very good idea. I'll have to make a mental note of that since I will be doing something similar at some point. I think I would use angle iron to make a frame on the sides for the door to rest against, and then come up with some way to latch it, and perhaps even lock it.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I have to do the latch too. If someone wants to steal it, I'd rather they not tear it apart, so I wont lock it.
Was wondering if I should put something under the door where its exposed or not still.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Love the bus! Awesome colors too! I have been lurking in these forums for awhile. I want a bus now but will wait until next year. How do you like the rear engine? I like them but for some reason I find most around me to be FE.
