Re: Smitty's Bus

What type of electrical line are you running?

The bus is really coming along. So I take it you help hasn't given up yet, or are you doing some of this yourself?

Re: Smitty's Bus

Dang Smitty, its looking good!!! From the looks of it you are no ameteur at building and fabricating in any facet of this project. Even your screws look evenly spaced!! What type of material are you sheating the wall with and using for a finish on it? I apologize if I looked over some of it but did you do all of the welding too? Your workspace is pretty impressive, looks like a jobsite trailer with your schedules/plans hanging on the walls.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Looking good Smitty. The windshield looks so small on that giant front wall. I'm sure you posted this somewhere in your thread but I couldn't find it...

What are you using your Skoolie for? Are you going full time?
