Re: Our New Skoolie (Yet to be named.)

Finally got fed up fighting the carb so I bought a new Holley and got it installed. Now the bus sounds great and drives better. I can now keep the bus cruisin' along at a respectable 60mph without having it to the floor. We spent last weekend out at the lake but I forgot to get any pics while we were there. Here are some pics of some of the recent work on the bus.


The new Carb


Replaced the house batteries.





We added the magentic screen from "As seen on TV." It doesn't seal up perfect but it helps to keep out most of the bugs and it kept a cardinal from flying into the bus last weekend. We used velcro to hold it into place so it can be removed easily.

Looking good. That carb is so new and shiny sitting on the old iron. I guess time will take care of that.

I want a door screen like the one you have. "As Seen on TV" only has garage door ones, at least at the moment.

Here's the link to the screen. Although we just bought ours at Wally-world. It doesn't like the arm for the door. I am going to put magnets on that side so it can come off and reattach itself if it gets hung on the arm.
