Any interest in a Bus Building Tips thread ... ?

A fairly wide range of folks come to this forum, some are totally new to doing project like this and others have been doing things like this all their lives.

Maybe the old timers would like to share their tips and techniques with the nubes.

I was thinking of starting a Bus Building Tech Tips thread over in the Conversion Tutorials How to's.

You guys think it's a good idea or a waste of time?

Will the old guys help out?

Post opinions in this thread ... including the mods and those administering this thread.

If there's no use for it ... no hard feelings.

Do it. Try to get a mod on board and see if they can watch it and delete all the clutter from time to time.

I think it's a great idea! I've combed through most of this forum and a few others as well. I still have a lot of questions regarding designing the on-board house systems. Basic concept posts would be a great start. Then we can follow those up with more detailed discussions.

Would be absolutely useful. Especially if set up by category....like...

shopping for the right bus
insurance
registering
diesel basics
gas engine basics
transmissions
rear axles
dealing with rust
removing seats
removing panels
removing glass
body work
welding
riveting
plumbing
electrical
cabinetry
etc., etc., etc.

A lot could be filled in just with links to existing posts/threads

?????????????

Stickies would be awesome too! The forum's search tool is often less than helpful. Google does an OK job though.

Yeah .. and if we could get every contributor to include the titles you suggested in his title post. It sure would make searching for stuff easier.

I wonder if the size of this webpage thingie would permit the addition of another forum, named as above with the categories you've suggested, perhaps simplified and condensed a bit.

The topics could simply be added as stickies to the already existing How-To sub-forum.

Yep. That's the deal.

I'll hold off until after the weekend to give the admin a chance to speak..
