Re: Project "Brutus"

Thanks guys! It was for sure the mask, lol... It went stupid easy. When I tried 2 years ago, I needed to have a reconstruction affidavit filled out, which required pictures and receipts of everything. No problem on the pictures, but I didn't have receipts for a lot of stuff. A lot of my parts had been gotten through wheeling and dealing and craigslist. It also could not be yellow to convert the title. So now that it is painted, I scrounged up whatever receipts I could find or makeup and headed in. Got there at 4:00, a half hour before they close, and there was a long line. Great. Went super fast, though, and a poor unsuspecting lady called me up with my pile of papers. Within about 2 minutes, she was completely flustered, said I needed original receipts for the reconstruction, and was asking somebody for help. I was seeing my chances of success fading rapidly. She joked that I should have gone to someone else Next lady comes up and says "Oh no, this is easy, Sweetheart. It's already in his name so it's just a class change. No reconstruction affidavit needed." 5 minutes later, I had my plates and was on my way. With an ear to ear grin

Re: Project "Brutus"

Yep! And just ordered the final things I need for our trip to CA. A brake controller and the tubing to finally plumb my intercooler. I'm towing my parents 26' travel trailer out there, and the intercooler should allow me to keep my foot in it longer going up grades and the brake controller...well, that's obvious

Gotta ask. Where in Ca are you heading? I'm in the Ventura area and would love to see your Skoolie. Jack

Re: Project "Brutus"

We are actually going to be a long ways north of you... Lake Shasta area. It's gorgeous up there! I have driven the bus through LA, though, and it was actually kinda fun. We had to drop off some friends at the airport, so I drove it right up to ticketing at LAX. All faded yellow and redneck looking

Heading out Oct. 11, but no, we are going though Montana on the way out to see my sister and on the way back we will be heading up through yellowstone (weather permitting) All roads should be open, but we will see

Re: Project "Brutus"

Thanks!

Well, ALL paint finished, new reverse lights installed, new LED clearance lights installed, wipers installed, all console wiring finished and console put back together, overhead storage doors on driver's side fixed so they close, all reflectors found and installed, bubble mirrors installed, intercooler plumbing purchased, brake controller coming today, one more interior light coming today, all interior lights converted to LED's, exterior holes from antennas, etc.. plugged, speaker mounts reinforced, TITLED AS AN RV, and a bazillion other little things

Still need to do some interior trim, remount the spare tire under the bus, install brake controller, plumb intercooler, install replacement air brake chamber in rear, install interior lights on the drivers side, CLEAN THE BUS, and a bunch of little misc. things, lol... I would really love to finish some of the little storage closets, as well, but not sure that's gonna happen. Water is gonna be a no go for this trip, it looks like. I need to finish up the list I just mentioned, though, and clean the bus, and see where I am at. I do still have 2 weeks. Might just need to put a bucket under the sink

On a side note, I don't purchase anything for the bus unless I have the money in my paypal account from something I have sold. I have been a selling FOOL!! The side benifit is that my garage is getting cleaner. Anybody want some CB750 parts?
