Yes, I did buy it at Tillery. I used to stop at the TA quite often. On the east side of town there is some sort of truck yard that has some old buses in it. I stopped a couple of times but no one was around. Do you know anything about it?

I made a handrail for the entrance steps, I mounted to the bottom of the step cover. It also serves to stiffen the step cover when it is down. I had an old cherry log that had a lot of bad spots in it but was able to get some usable pieces.

I started on the shower door today. It's going to be made of bus windows and walnut.








I like to do things the hard way.

Inside of closet finished

I finished the inside of the bedroom closet. I've had the plan in my head for a couple of years. The shelf tubes are from the original overhead luggage racks. I'm not sure if the baskets are the final. And I still have to make the drawer at the very bottom. There will be a light that comes on when the door opens.









One of these days I'm going to have to start making the doors for all of these cabinets.

what I used isn't for a system that has aluminum in it.
1) Your transfer plates are .... AL flashing or some more?

2) What is AL in your system; bus radiator, diesel heater, fittings?

So, all of 2016 has come and gone, how's the AC holding up to road dust and mud?

I am thinking of the same thing only maybe turned 180 so I can garden hose the fins on the condenser.
