I don't have any complaints. They keep water out unlike the original bus windows. I don't normally have the bus out when its real cold. However being out there the last couple days, I haven't noticed them being drafty. The front bus door is what is terrible. Maybe that's what is making them seem nice. The draft from the door is horrible. Someday I would like to do something different, but its pretty low on my list at this point. If I remember right the windows were for teardrop trailers. Pretty sure I got them on ebay for around $100 a piece.

The front passenger seat was from a van without a swivel base. So this week I ordered a locking swivel off of amazon. I felt the chair has been to low, so now was the time to make a swivel seat base and raise the chair too.

The original base and the pieces of angle I cut to make the new swivel. The angle is way overkill, but it's stuff just laying around.

Facing the back. Now it's right. You can sit towards the table now, and it's not up to your neck.

Excellent! --- I'm doing the same thing with my pilot's chair. It also has a long travel slide so hopefully I can turn it far enough to be my "Lazy Boy" when parked.

Overkill is good for seat mounts.

I want to see someone use a 1000 pound trailer hub as a seat swivel.

Nat, If I would have had a hub laying around I might have tried that. Good idea. When this $20 swivel shucks its goodies I'll remember that.

Tango, I might add slides to it later on, if it seems like its to far from the table. Might be a couple years tho, as long as its taken me to do this little project.

Thanks BC! Here shortly, I'm going to be working on some lighting. Which your last led lighting has inspired me. I want to do something pretty close to yours, but I think will incorporate the led's into the valances. I already purchased this roll of led's and some switches. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Weather has been terribly cold up until this weekend. So I was trying to do most things in the garage. The next little project.

I finally got around to make a panel for under the counter top.

Made it out to the bus today. Actually got into the 50's. Looks like possible 60's this week. So hopefully, I can find some time during the week, to work on it. Amazing we were just in the single digits last week.

I'm hoping to paint the brown cabinet at the end black this week to match.
