Re: The Odd OX

thanks its really awesome to hear such nice feed back. I am a pack rat for pieces of wood and metal every time i find something cool i say.............. i'll keep this i could use it one day and of course usually it just sits maybe never gets used. but i was working on the bus early on in the construction and ran out of 2x4s and thought my day was over but i was thinking all in the box.... i save all this stuff and move it around all the time why not finally use it. i really like the cabin rustic feel anyways. i'm pretty excited with the way it is turning out. i think all of the plywood and stuff will be stained but the all the post will just get polyurethan.

Re: The Odd OX

well i need to catch ya'll up to speed on the bus anyways got tons of pictures to post but first I'm having a problem. SHE WON'T START! I narrowed it down to a solenoid that is in behind all the switches. It looks to me it is a solenoid for a child safety system that my bus has. Does anybody know how to remove this. I was just going to leave it because electrical stuff is not my thing and i did not want to cause a problem by removing it. but now it is making it not start so i'm confused. If ya'll are not familiar with it there is a button in the back of the bus near the door and the system is wired up to the flashing lights somehow so if you run the flashing lights the system thinks you have kids on the bus. so when you try to turn the bus off the horn starts blasting and beeping noises so before you turn the bus off you have to walk to the back and push the button making it so you can't leave kids on the bus. I have also removed the stop sign and the arm in the front that wouldn't have anything to do with this would it?

Re: The Odd OX

well to fill ya'll in a bit on the progress. I have been living in the bus for about 5 months now and it is great. There are still lots of things being worked on but most of the important stuff is done. The kitchen is the main thing i'm working on now. I just got my refrigerator and stove and thats what i was waiting so i could make sure they would fit in the area that i build for counter and cabinets. up to this point i just have had an outdoor kitchen just a couple of wash tubs, and a propane camp stove. My brother was replacing windows in his house so i salvaged some screens so that i could leave windows open and not deal with bugs. I just took the yellow pieces of metal off between the windows and the screen had about a half inch or so that it could fit in then just stretched it as tight as i could and screwed metal back in place to hold screen
