Re: The Bamper - 1977 Chevy 54 pass

I've been trying to figure out a way to avoid spending $100 on these fancy plugs but my feeble mind just couldn't pull it off. I pulled the trigger and ordered these up today.

Bought the same for ours (ebay woulda been cheaper for us). sometimes there isn't a cheaper alternative if you want it done right.

I am usually a "do it right the first time" kind of thinker but I'm also a tight-ass and sometimes they conflict .....

Re: The Bamper - 1977 Chevy 54 pass

Got them in the mail today. This plug is MASSIVE ! !

I think I am going to be more than glad I decided to pull the plugs on the plugs. Haha. Word play. I love it.

This is what I have. They use these in the boating world.



It had a handle like a pistol you push it in and twist to lock. There is a screw collar that tightens it down and it is water tight.

I don't go camping when it rains

I'm going to mount the plug upside down under the bus. It won't be exposed to the elements when the power cord is plugged in.



ALSO got some "new" 20's for the bus last week. $100 for the set already mounted on C/60 rims. For the win ! !
