Here's what the wheels looked like before on that bus:



It's amazing what a little paint and tire shine can do!

Re: Jared's Wayne Chevy

Alright, well I'm beginning to make some progress. My short term goal is to have a mild tailgater for the Baltimore Ravens games coming up in a few weeks. Anyway, after not being able to start her, I installed a rebuilt carb, distributor cap, rotor, ignition module, pickup coil and a new starter. Re-timed her and she is running better than ever. No more engine dieseling when I shut her down either!!!

So I am gonna install a 26" LCD TV and get one of those HDTV antenna's in the meantime. I got many of the seats out and will build perimeter seating this weekend hopefully. Do you guys thing a typical inverter will run the TV and antenna for the 5 or 6 hours in the parking lot (off the chassis battery)? I also have a spare 8D i can use.

Ok, so I picked up a brand new Bostrom Liberty Air ride Drivers seat for $300. I have air brakes but a standard spring suspension. Can anyone help me figure out how to hook this thing up to my compressor?

Awsome shelter for your bus. Was that a kit of some kind?
Was it designed to be mounted on the wooden posts or did you do so for the added height?

Thanks. Its a long story, but the site I built it on is my grandparents house and thought it wouldnt be wise at this time to pour a permanent slab. With the wood posts and heavy stone and gravel I could disassemble the whole thing if I wanted to move it. The building itself came from http://www.bestdealonsteel.com/index.php

Understand completely. My bus is also at my parents' larger property.
Thanks for the link. I'll check it out. Good luck on your project.

Re: Jared's Wayne Chevy

I have been making some progress trying to get the bus ready for Baltimore Ravens Homegame 1 on Sept 26th. Friends and family twisted my arm until I decided to start converting her into a tailgater.

Brand new Bostrom Air ride seat for me:


Winegard Roof antenna:


Leaving in 4 rows of seats (though am recovering them):


Plywood subfloor and bench seats in place. You can also see the re-upholstered seats. Its outdoor sheerweave roller shade fabric:


My question at this time: I am running 1 - 26" LCD tv and a stereo off of an inverter which will be ran off of 1 - 8D 12v Deka and 1 - group 3 12v Deka battery. For the first game, can I place these two batteries under the bench seats (no they are not sealed -- I did read the Wiki entry on the board about how they should be concealed and with ventilation to the outside). the rear of the bench seating unit is capped off obviously from the photos, but the front is not. It is still open, thus the under seating storage area is not completely sealed. Obviously, after the first game and I have more time I will do the right thing and build a battery bank box in the skirting under the bus but was wondering if I could risk it for about 5 hours with the batteries mounted inside the bus under the seating.

Thanks as always for your advice and time!

Jared
