That'd be about 80 miles from my place.

I hope so! I am glad I'm covering the windows. They are completely pointless with the wall here.

Re: Project "Brutus"

I have two small windows and the emergency door. I plan to paint black over the inside of the small windows and keep the door. That will be where my bed is located and plan to put a screen over the door. I will build small cabinets beside the bed where the windows are.

Re: Project "Brutus"

That will look nice! I kinda go back and forth on if I should have put a wall in the very back, but I am glad I did (I think, lol). It created a nice dry place to keep my batteries and I through my tools back there. I also like our bedroom walls being squared off.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Well, the bus is scuffed, sanded, and wiped down. Hood is repaired (holes broke through fiberglass from weight of mirrors) and the bus is half taped. Getting closer!!

Re: Project "Brutus"

That is exactly the plan. I was hoping to finish taping last night, but nope. I forget how much random stuff there is, and I'm a perfectionist in areas like this. Being a perfectionist on a bus is trouble, lol... Anywho, enjoy the beer
