Re: Smitty's Bus

Those kill-a-watts are great. I bought one from the local hardware store on sale for about $20. Great investment. Thanks for the info on the fridge.

Re: Smitty's Bus



The stove is very cool. So the bottom door is for ash, the middle is for fuel and the top door is the oven? Can you put a skillet in the top? Did you use any gasket to make it airtight? Are you putting in a CO monitor?

I gotta admit that seeing your bus is what lit the fire to start working on the Man Cave again. I can't wait to see your bus when it's road-ready.

Re: Smitty's Bus

I've got a bread recipe for you to try in your oven. It's calls for using a dutch oven but it might work in your top oven. This bread is the BOMB! I make a couple of loaves a week and sometimes more to give away. It's so easy a caveman can make it.

Re: Smitty's Bus

So are you going to make a youtube video of your toilet in action?

Damn you, Smitty. I like your toilet design better than mine. Gonna have to redo mine or make additions for that cute sawdust bin.

Re: Smitty's Bus

DUDE, the bus is looking really cool. Is there a picture of the bus with the raised roof done. I don't remember seeing one. How close are you to finishing or at least road ready to take it out?

Re: Smitty's Bus

Is the flooring pre-finished or wood planks?

Re: Smitty's Bus

Not too long now!
When the spice rack goes up and there's canned goods in the pantry, it's looking ready to roll.
Hope you're holding up well through the wind down phase, and the tying of all the loose ends.
