The aluminum trim piece looks great.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Thanks! trying to figure out what I'm going to work on tonight. Think I'm going to box in a couple areas in front and trim. Time for it to not look like a work in progress.

That really matches and rounds out the panel w/switch panel on right

I agree! Some "mistakes" were just meant to be, I guess.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Ok, to be honest, now I'm just showing off. This is the cutout from the piece I made yesterday. Turned it into a mounting plate for my air door release valve. Had fun with the belt sander and an abrasive bristle wheel, making it look purdy.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Plan "B" worked out better than the original plan. Gotta love that scrap bin gold.

Yup!!

Well, here's what I got done for today. Got the area above the door boxed in. It was tricky because of the angles, and I wanted to maintain the head clearance. Also put tongue and grove pine under the futon.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Thanks!! This is old, as I have the walls up now, but it gives you the general idea. A 36" by 36" shower, and then the stool will sit on top of the wheel well. It's not ideal, but it'll work. No sink, we'll just use the one in the kitchen. Also, not using black tanks, I'm planning to use some sort of portable toilet. Or possibly an incinerating toilet.

Re: Project "Brutus"

I hate not being able to work on the bus. I am currently in Ohio for work, go home tomorrow, but actually don't even go home, just board another plane and fly to Sacramento (this isn't for work, though). There for a week and then come "home" only to turn around and fly to Atlanta for work for a week. Home for a few days, and then fly to Dallas to visit an incredibly close friend of mine (super excited about that one...my wife surprised me and just bought tickets and worked it out with my boss). Come almost home (just to the airport), rent a car and drive to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for work. My poor bus is going to sit for about 6 weeks. BUT, I am then done traveling for work. Had a meeting with my boss and let him know I had had enough. I've missed to much already and I'm not missing any more.
