Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

already after midnight, tired after a long day in the bus
installed the subwoofer behind the drivers seat. sounds very nice Traced a whole bunch of wireing and removed lots that wasnt needed anymore. Got the back-up camera switch finaly installed. Steelbrushed, washed and painted (painting was done by wife and 5 year old) Underbody Propanetank (which I was given for fixing someones computer.)









the tanks are blue now, forgot to take some pictures.

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

and on we go with making the bunkbeds presentable....




Trying to figure out where and how to mount all those tanks....



and the propane tanks. I scrapped the plan on mounting the underbody tank. I think it is easier just to be able to take out a 30 pounder and walk to the fill station.
(i know I need to buy a new bottle)

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

Thanks for the input i wasnt tinking of that but I will have a 10 or 20 lb tank along anyway for the BBQ. So unless I run all 3 bottles empty i should be ok or have to live off a 20 lb until i can get to a fill station.
