i'm at work today and forgot my card reader at home so photos will have to wait....
Got a lot done yesterday.
ground off the rivets on the cieling panel and easily removed that piece of sheet metal.
then on a whim we decided to install the jacuzzi immediately instead of setting up an appointment with crane guy. First We trimmed about 1.5 inches off of the jacuzzi with a cordless dewalt circular saw. We didn't really have the correct tools for the lifting job, but that's never stopped us before. Basically we attached a large clevis to a tree branch about 20 feet off the ground. Then we tied one end of a long piece of rope to the jacuzzi, and the other end through the clevis and back down to the truck.
looked something like this:
It took a while, but nobody got hurt, and we finally got the monster sized jacuzzi installed in the bus. The tollerances between the jacuzzi and the bus walls is almost non-existent. It's a perfect fit. !
