I completely agree. I had a slight idea on how to cover my front emergency light holes and then i seen how you did transcendences' and was confident i could now do it after watching your video on yours. You are a great teacher. You should totally make "how to" videos or "how it works" as well as bus episodes that you currently do. The snippet of you talking about sheet metal and clecos was a great.

Thanks BurlKing.....Super cool to hear your've gained confidence from watching my videos.

Very cool you mentioned "how to" videos. I'm a didgeridoo crafter and I've actually just recorded a video showing how to make a didgeridoo. I'm going to start a didgeridoo section on my youtube channel so others can actually hear them being played to help decide on their purchase.

How do you know if they need to be arched. Is just just a ride height measurement. What was the cost.

Do the bearings go out even when there full of oil after so many miles?

I think it's standard procedure when rebuilding leaf springs. I brought in two sets that were in fairly bad condition. They rebuilt, and made 1 good set from them. Bearings will last a very long time as well as they are properly maintained.

Man, you're really moving along now!
I for one, REALLLLLLY can't wait to see this thing when you're "done".

Especially if you could be persuaded to head south for a weekend or two!

I hope I can continue this momentum through the winter. I may have to do a few other things that will take up a bit of my time though...Blah blah blah....all I really want to do is keep working on the bus!!
