Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

looking good
are your tail/stop lights 2 or 3 wire?
check the wiring at the lights and make sure that you have the ground and hots hooked up correctly, it sounds like you may be using the brakelite wire for ground, when you stp on the brakes you feed + 12v to both sides if the light and effectively end up with no v difference on the bulbs.
if they are 2 wire they are for either/or tail stop lights you will need to add another light on each side for stop lights

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

yes they are only 2 wire, so i guess I have to get some other bright lights for the brakes.

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

well that was the problem, either or, but not both. So now they are wired as very bright brake lights.

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

My Wife built some drawers for under the beds..


and then finishing of the masterbedroom was started







a little messy right now, but hopefully by tomorrow night it will look a lot better.
it feels like we finaly make some progress.
Oh yes, also had to buy a new alternator. Just bought a regular 150 AMP one couldnt justify the cost of a 200 AMP+ model. Regular one was 260 Canadian for the 200 amp one they wanted 650 or more.



hmmm looking at this picture now I think I should have taken out the black paint as i had that alternator off.
