Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

no bm for me this year. i'm getting married aug 1st then leaving for hawii for a couple of weeks.

I ordered my inverter, and a pair of pumps for the jacuzzi.





i e-mailed several craigslist people with used hot tubs but have yet to have any decent prospects. I'd like to try and buy most of the items i need for the conversion in the next week or two while i'm waiting for the bus to become available.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

looking forward to seeing this new project. I am sure its gonna turn out nice.
I just wish people would start posting pictures on Picasa and not photobucket and flickr. My work network policies block bucket and flickr.

I also wish the temperatures would come back up for us that we can start working on the bus again. -30 C this morning again.

i have the same problem when using computers at work....so i took the time to add my photo's to skoolie's gallery and edit the above posts. It's easy enough to upload to skoolie, i'll try to do the entire project on skoolie's gallery. It's only slightly more time consuming than flickr.

If you download the program Gallery Remote you can upload lots of photos very quickly.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

we brought home our "new" jacuzzi last nite. It's a very nice color. Slightly smaller than some of my previous tub's, but it's about 82" by 75". Should look real nice inside a skoolie!

There was a little bit of frost on the jacuzzi when i took the photos this morning. I sure wish spring would get here!



There was a little mishap while loading. The tub fell and landed on the foot of the person we bought the tub from. It's quiet likely that her foot is broken, she was on her way to the ER last nite. I told them (her and him) that i'll take em out for a nite on the town in the bus when i get her finished.

Also got an alpine car stereo head unit and it sounds really nice! Much higher quality sound compared to a sony xplode unit i had laying around.

Now if only i had a bus i'd have a place to store all of this new stuff! lol

Re: Jacuzzi Bus V

The new bus made it home today. She has 67,001 miles on the odometer.



this is by far the nicest bus i've ever purchased. She'll cruise 67 mph on flat ground (confirmed with gps, and police interceptor crown victoria with "certified calibration" speedo.) There is no rust anywhere on the body. She is just a nice clean bus! The rear axle ratio looks to be a 4.33:1





I started removing the seats tonight, but it got dark and cold and the bolts just were not cooperating. I work 24 hours tomorrow, but hope to get some work done the following day.
