Re: The Brown Crown

Finished the duct work today for my exhaust fan and added a switch on the dash...works good and helps to vent the bus air, puling the air conditioning air forward, which is good since it is still in the high 90's here in Bakersfield

Re: The Brown Crown

Getting ready for a trip to the Central California coast this next weekend so I steam cleaned the engine this week and gave the bus a bath. First time the engine had been cleaned in a few years so it needed it.

Usually I just climb up and down a ladder to wash the roof, but I got this idea just to pull it closer to the house and get up on the roof...dang that was so much better, especially for an old guy. Then went and put some diesel in her...ouch...$4.59 a gallon...I guess that is just part of having a skoolie. It's 260 mile round trip and over some mountains, so the Crown will only get about 8 1/2 mpg on this trip. So I only put in 32 gallons, just enough, so I would still have money for beer







Clean solar panels for the batteries


Ready to roll

Re: The Brown Crown

That Crown is such a stylish bus.I love the color. I am so glad that you removed the bike rack from the front.
