Longrun

Hello all, some of you may get a laugh out of this project base, but as rough as it is, I have spent a fair amount of time over the years researching such a project and this one seems to be structurally sound, (aside from the vandalism,) mechanically it needs new gas replacing the old gas and new tires, plus some seals are dried out and leaky from being parked too long. The interior has been trashed, I'll be tearing out/down most of it and then shovelling it out at the dump once it's road worthy. But the major body modifications I've aimed at have already been done. Relocated access door, generator compartment where the old door was, under body storage, HUGE water tanks and installed functional plumbing. It won't be easy I know but it's a good start. So enough words, here's some pictures... Dang, thought I could post them straight from my cellphone. I'll share them once I get that figured out.

Aha. Figured out how, but my picks are too wide, been trying to crop them, this may take awhile.

Okay even after cropping some pictures down to size they still won't upload. Don't know if it's the network or just me but I'm frustrated and I have other things to do right now. I'll try again later.

Don't use this site to host the pics.

Use photo bucket.

Hosting them here is a bad idea for so many reasons.

Or Imgur. Both work well, and provide the same link as seen below-
