Re: Slab Cab'n

Ya they did, and at only $100 a wheel, money well spent in our eyes! We have friends up here with a conversion 2 and they put the same simulators on theirs a few years ago, and they still look good, and haven't fallen off!

Re: Slab Cab'n

The only thing I had to modify was the air line extenders for the duals. 2 out of the 4 wouldn't screw on far enough so I ended up going to a bench grinder and ground 1/8" off of the end. Now they screw on tight with no air getting by. But depending on what kind of valve step you have you may not have any issues.

Re: Slab Cab'n

You won't be disappointed, and thanks...should have the bumpers and awning back on this week-end. Mark is finishing up wiring the 7 chicken lights on the front bumper, we're swithcing all the markers, signals and brake lights to LED's.

Re: Slab Cab'n

Thanks guys...as for the skull not sure where it went..although I liked it too!

And not sure if I've said it before its not only my bus, I bought it with a friend hes and electrician and I a machinist so there wasn't much we couldn't do. In fact the only thing we ever paid for to be done on it was the Naugahyde seats to be sewn together with the cream filler vinyl. WE DON"T SEW!!

got the 26' awning on today, but forgot the camera. She matches damn near perfect with the paint job.. a few more picts to come in the near future.

As for a side not, the LED markers and chicken lights look awesome at night! The fog lights and reverse lights low in both bumpers work great, huge improvement! The 2 LED brake lights in the back sure cleaned up the looks.

Thanks again All! and if any of you have any questions on what we've done to be afraid to ask!

Re: Slab Cab'n



Well we got her done for Mark's wedding...been a while thought I'd show her off with us guys.

Because shes looking good we've had her booked up 6 times in sept and oct...stag-ettes and weddings. Should be self supporting now on, insurance, maintenance, repairs and upgrades.
