Re: Slab Cab'n

Wow that is one awesome bus, nice blend of party bus and RV.

I love the beer bottle door handle, any chance you'd be interested in making one to sell?

Re: Slab Cab'n

Thanks, and its even functional. It sure pays dividends that I'm a machinist and my buddy the co-owner is an electrician, we haven't paid for any labour except for the old bus seat vinyl to be sewn together for the new seats.

Wouldn't be that hard to make one, I made that one years ago, on the manual lathe. We have a CNC lathe here at work and it wouldn't take our operater very long to whip 1 or 2 or 5 off. Actually we don't live very for from each other, I am 10 min from Algonac, or 15 min from Marine City, on the Canadian side.
What you probably can't see is I engraved the Blue Bird logo on both sides of the bottle, with a .01 carbide cutter, turned out good.

Re: Slab Cab'n

Yeah I'm about 2.5 hours past Detroit... I've been to Canada a few times with my bus most recently this past February. Me and Jason went to Dave's Farm in London, Ontario. It was a lot of fun, we can't wait to go back but with fuel at $4.70 a gallon it might not be for a while.

With fuel prices what they are, I'd be better off if you could mail me one. Any idea what your lathe operator would charge?

Re: Slab Cab'n

I'll look in to it, I'm sure you'll want all the back and side work done so its a bolt on application. Probably have to take mine apart to see what I did.

And This is what the unit looks like inside the bus. On the front of the bus is our Trophy Rack (Jingle Jugs)

Re: Slab Cab'n

Well...its been a while, but now we are up against the gun to get the outside finished. Too busy/lazy to figure out how to post the pictures I recently took of the improvements. Maybe I'll get motivated to do it soon.

BUT for you that are on facebook you can see the progress here:

Re: Slab Cab'n

It's good to see you back here on skoolie. I took several ideas from your work when starting our project in September '09 for which I am most appreciative. Your recent body work is looking good, keep up the posts.
