Are you referring to my blue? It it rather bright, especially in snow.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Everyone cross fingers for me ... both for the fact that someone has twice mentioned that they will haul an old trailer they have to somewhere that I can strip it of essentials, that this will actually transpire... and two, that the stuff will actually work for me. Hoping to at least score a refrigerator. But I'm sure I'd be able to use a lot more.

Have major mini me-ing projects going on in the house I'll be moving out of. Sized full sized computer and sound system into a laptop. Got DVD/CD books and took all of my music and movies from a large cabinet into two books. Even found the tiniest little hair dryer. One small step at a time.

This weekend is supposed to be up to mid to high 50's and 39 at night. Might just be able to paint. Inside.. not the BLUE!

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

OK.... cold is not going away just yet. 23 degrees at night. So I can't paint yet and I'm getting impatient. Perhaps I will buy and fit the resin paper, styro board and plywood. Cut and puzzle together and then take back up when warm enough to paint... might make it next weekend. Or better yet, start my cardboard mock ups of furniture.. Contacted the Sears store and they're going to save me refrigerator boxes.

Also found out I can get Edelbrock air breathers brand new for $19 - $27 or have shipped for around $34. Crazy.

And long conversation with my cousin and step-pops regarding transmission, tires and air brakes.

There's still lots to do without physically working on the bus.

Cardboard mock-ups are a good idea. You can get an idea of the ergonomics of what you will be living with.

Photobucket has changed their format. I could not even find this photo on their logs. I had to get it from my thread. Here is the page that explains it. Go to the bottom then continue to the next page.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

I think I saw some of your mock ups before. I think I read your whole thread. But thanks. I have feelers out for cardboard.

.. go to any Lowe's/Home Store or any Appliance Store and ask for a few Ref/Freezer boxes .. you should be able to score them for free .. then go buy a couple of rolls of masking tape from them to seal the deal .. better yet, ask while you're holding the tape in your hand and tell them why ..

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Try furniture stores as well. Often times they just throw the cardboard into big dumpsters. A friend and I scored a lot of cardboard last year from furniture companies. We asked the manager if we could have the cardboard, and they said yes. They said we could get some whenever we wanted.

We crush all cardboard in the cardboard baler as fast a possible. It keeps the debris down and the stores recycle the cardboard. So don't be surprised if you can't get a cardboard box from Home Depot. You will really need to be in the "right place at the right time".

Try furniture stores for cardboard as well.
