It's a rust converter, it works on rust. Read the directions for proper dilution. It goes a long way.

Its also great for painting galvanized stuff.
I've diluted it before but mostly use it straight since its pretty cheap and a little does go a long way. I'll try the etch and prep stuff next time I'm out of ospho. I think that'll be a while though- I've got at least a gallon or two.

Every cloud has a silver lining. FedEx showed up today to deliver my 29.3 gallon propane tank which I was ready to install. As soon as she opened the door to the back of the truck I said " send it back". FedEx package handlers treated this box terribly. I immediately called them show them the pics. They sent a replacement immediately and gave me a credit of 10%, $51.38

That silver lining was better than I expected. They sent me a follow-up email to inform me of the replacement delivery and a clause that said take your damaged item and donate it or dispose of it. I called them back and said is this true I can keep this damage tank. She said absolutely. So I prematurely refused delivery, but called FedEx and they will redeliver the damage tank and on Monday I'll get a new tank also

Got my ladder figured out. Didn't want to make it permanent on the side, so I won't be using the four screw hold down plates at the six points for the lower legs. I will screw 1-1/4" x 3/4" diameter studs into the side of the bus at the 6 leg positions. Each will be drilled for 1/4" push pins to facilitate removal and stowing.

I didn't like how "loose" the extended door felt at the top, so I added another set of hinges.

If it's ok with you, I'm going to link your thread to a guy on FB. I dunno if he hangs out here or not. I think he's another bike nut and I think you'll like him anyway. He's got a dog nose and was taking about doing a double door on the rear as well.


Propane tank with a crack?!? I need to go back and take a second look. Looked like a plastic tank at first glance. Is a damaged propane tank even usable? The knuckleheads at U-Haul won't even fill a 5 gallon grill tank with a little rust on it. Pretty sweet on the discount tho. Not entirely the company's fault for FedEx tossing it around.

Oh, that's the base plate. I guess I know who is going to have 58.6 gallon capacity now. Really sweet.

I'm not knocking the idea at all. Kinda like it actually but why the need for a ladder? I dunno if I'd go thru the effort of attaching a ladder to the outside. I'd either just lean it again the side of the bus or shove it thru the e-hatch inside. I don't recall if you have a deck up there or not. If there is, I'd probably frame out the e-hatch to double its size and use something like attic stairs. I really need to go back to where I left off on reading your build.

It didn't damage the tank at all, only the mounting bracket that has bent and broken only the weld on the bracket. I'll post better pic after they redeliver today. It was absolutely not Wayfairs fault, obviously done being tossed around at FedEx. The fact that Wayfair doesn't want it back is unusual. Linking my thread, it's the internet, feel free to do what you want. Certainly willing to help anyone out.
