Re: Transmogrifie and Me

the shade cloth I got is UV tolerate and has a 10 year warranty against that, works great as shade and a windshield cover/screen


I plan to have it on the roof this spring/summer

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

After your hiatus, where do you pick up to continue this project?

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Two week vacation (2750 miles). Got a mitre saw and a couple of planers that were my dad's from my step pops while I was up there and a speed square and carpenter pencils from Lowes (wanted the pencils just cuz they were mine).

Got home and all of the shade cloths are in shreds, even the ones I usually take camping and have had for years. Think we had a terrible windstorm while I was gone. Everything else is fine though. And now it's cooling off the sun will feel good.

Where to pick up. I have been looking at some cabinet work and I am anxious to start building the framework for the sewing cabinets, the bench seat and the kitchen cabinets. The bathroom will still be waiting for me but at the other end of the project. I think I'll just have to decide on a size and make it work. And once I get the bathroom walls figured out my friend can come and put my carpet in the back half.

I really wish I could say that the bus (my home) was my only project.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Keep your head up! You still have your bus, that is usually the hardest part the rest is just a process!! Sorry about your tarps, maybe keep an eye on craigslist for more that you can either buy for cheap or trade for something else?

Btw your screens look really nice!

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

My build got a bit overwhelming at times too. A few times I wondered just what in hell I'd gotten myself into.

Take a break and get some perspective on the problem. The satisfaction you get from a project is proportional to it's difficulty.

You will overcome - just not today.

Thanks.. and the screens came on the bus. Nice but will have to be taken down to do any skinning at a later date but they've been a real big help with the bugs. They used it for a dining car for a while.

Thanks. And I feel accomplished in a lot of ways. And I feel safe in the bus from the elements and the critters.

If you had a house, you would be spending a lot of money repairing a shingled roof instead. At least the bus is OK.

Help... glue...

I can't find accordian's thread that I was reading before. He said his ceiling fell down because of the spray on glue and that the brush on glue was better. Can someone tell me what type of glue that was?
