Me....I'm right on track --- Figured this would be a two-year project and sure enough, two and a half years later...it's still two years to completion.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Still need to add some trim but we finished the cabinet lids the other evening, it was a beautifully warm evening. Still finishing up the drivers area and then we'll turn our attention back to the rest, work our way back so to speak. With the warm weather we can finally get back to our penetrating epoxy sealer we're putting on our window sills and get the rest of the wood work done. We're about a month from putting in the flooring, didn't want to damage it during all the woodworking.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Some more work on the dash and cab area. Added a maple dashboard with black walnut trim. Walnut is attached to 2x2 pieces that were sanded with a matching curve and screwed to the defrost duct; there was a small area that protruded from the maple were I cut it to clear the steering wheel but the belt sander took care of that, kinda reminds me of the back of a guitar the way it came out. I also routed some 3/4" deep trays into a piece of 5/4" curly maple for the drivers tray/sound barrier we mounted over the engine cowl, we're very happy with the result. Just about finished with the couch as well, will post pics of that soon.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

...I was pretty surprised at just how much stuff (construction materials for now) fits in the couch.
