Re: skoolie days

been doing a bit of work on the lights, I found some 1/4 tubeing to run a single 14g wire in, the I drilled a hole in my lights but the wire in and ran the wire into the tube, this is for the lights on the ceiling, it looks good, better the looking at the wire running on the ceiling. I used electrical cover called panduit, its flat, has a sticky back to it, you run the wires in and snap it shut. I also put a light on the escape hatch, it was the best place of the hallway, and will be some light for the shower as well.

Re: skoolie days

some pics, the new set up for the co-pilot the base came out of a old ford van that was at the dump. I raised the back 2 inchs to make it level, then welded a 3/16 pc of steel plate on it about 3 inchs longer so that the seat could be moved a head more it worked out real well.
