Damn you Steve Jobs!





check the 4 digit date on your tires, front should be no more than 7 years old and rear 10 years. plan on getting new rims, i have an old military trailer with them on it. my tire shop gets 70 bucks to break one down, most wont touch them. b t w my trailer is now yard art!

My bus is shrinking....

Worked a couple hours this evening pulling out 5 of the 6 ambulance cots, back rests and frames, 25 of the 30 seat belt buckle ends from the seat rail.... I kept the 6th cot in, to stack all the other cot cushions on,. .

Walked to the front, looked back and the space seemed smaller than ever before!

Kinda got that "what the hell have I done" sinking feeling




makita lithium cordless drill, and 2 wrenches were all the tools I needed... I also created a rolling milk crate seat out of the big screw on roller wheelie thingie you see on the big trash cans the janitor uses and it worked great!

I've got an electric impact ready to take out 30 seat belt tensioners that are bolted through the floor... Once my son gets here with his creeper to crawl along under the bus....
Zip, zip, roll... x15, then down the other side... Zip zip roll x15



Interior dimensions
77" tall
90" wide (7.5 feet)
28' long working space to "the white line"

(210 sq. foot minus wheel wells)

Good to see you back. I was wondering where you might be. Congrats on the bus purchase. Nice to find something with low mileage. I have seen a couple AF buses like that with the double rear doors. They were priced more than I wanted to pay.
