Actually, I don't remember much of TV operations (vacuum tubes were still used when I last worked on them) but, I still remember the screwups (blowing up electrolytic capacitors, smoking resistors, etc) and changing the coil leads, on the TV, was a screwup.

I, myself, am planning on finding a used 5" TV and dedicating it to just the backup camera.

You might be able to use the DPDT switch if you turn off the TV prior to switching it but, do you want to chance it.

BTW, I really think your bus looks great. You have done a lot with the bus and done it at low cost and with good taste.

Now, if I coulld only be blessed with your scrounging ability.

Hi Everyone,

I made a couple of updates to the website including a new page covering cabinetry and finish carpentry. Have a look:

Hey, stay outta my head!

I was thinking of something very much like that for my computer/desk. Not exactly the same, as I sit on the floor, but similar. Good job!

Man, that bus just keeps looking nicer and nicer, some very tasteful work going on in there! I really like your utilization of space with the odd angles.

I made some wheel chocks and installed a backup camera this weekend so I created a new "Safety" page:

Cheers!
