depending on how long it takes to get the injector pump replaced, we hope to have the bus back together in a month or less.
You can ask steve, skoolie admin, Nearly everything on the bus was only done half right to begin with. One of my biggest faults when i built the bus was my electrical wireing. I"m not the kind of guy to do really maticulous finish work....i really just like to make things work, then i seem to move on to the next adventure leaving wires in a rather disorderly fashion. After the Floor, and the IP, the next thing i want to do is Re-wire all the stuff that i did in the bus. I bought lots of wire, connectors, and a junction box today.
Next step is the cieling. The paint is peeling, especially over the jacuzzi. Perhaps i should have scuffed the original paint and applied some primer before i painted the cieleing the first time. There are lots of rivets! Sanding isn't going to be much fun. I think a wire wheel in the angle grinder is the ticket! With two of us grinding away (pun intended) we should be able to do the entire cieling in one day. Then i want to prep the surface properly, paint it black with florecent orange flames. Then cover the entire ceiling in shiny chain link fence.
Then there's the wall between the jacuzzi and the living quarters. I've always needed some steps, and the original wall was errected in about an hour with mateials that i happened to have on hand. The new idea is to build a wall and steps out of glass block 8"x8"x3".
It'll cost about 200 bucks....but since nearly everything else in the bus was free or cheap, I think it's ok. Then i can have colored lights shine through the glass block...it should give a pretty cool effect.
I"ll keep ya posted....and i'll try to upload some photo's of the process.
I love a good adventure!
