Re: Jake's first skoolie...

I havent done anything, yet, but I plan on using a portable. I don't mind dealing with a gray tank, but I am really going to try to avoid a black tank. That's my plan for now, at least. Also, little more info on the screws...They are triple coated deck screws made by midwest manufacturing.

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Have fun!! I am ridiculously excited to get the bus moved this sunday. Can't wait to start working on it again!! A little anxious as well as it hasn't been started in over a year and is parked on a farmer's property. Not to mention I will be driving it on a narrow easement along my neighbors property and then shoe horning it in alongside a shed. Without damaging the yard. Good times will be had by all I may have to post some video!

Well, it is parked in the yard! I included pics I took today, so you can see exactly how it sits as of right now.

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Is that flooring floor or did you glue or nail it?

Re: Project "Brutus"

No updates, but checking to see how many gearheads we have My DT466 is the 210 hp model. I have already turned the fuel pump up pretty much as far as I can, adjusted the preboost, advanced the injection timing, and straight piped it. Redneck, I know, haha... I just missed a 230hp injector pump on ebay for $200 or something...GAH!! My wish list is a 230hp pump to play with, an hx40w turbo and propane injection. And then regear from 4.78 to 3.91. 60mph at 2000 rpm's and still have plenty of power...that would be the goal. I will likely do none of it, though, as I need to focus on the bus itself. Fun to dream, though!!

Re: Project "Brutus"

Finally got some work done. Other than my shower and sink drain, all plumbing is run. I just need to purchase and install a hot water heater, and then finish my shower. And I am in the middle of the building the overhead cupboards on the driver side, right now. Once they are completed, it's time to build my driver's console and figure out what I want to do with the front heater. I think I'm basically going to start at the front of the bus then, and work my way back, completing as I go.
