Yep- duct tape and greenhouse poly are keeping it dry for now.
I got the pneumatic riveter, now i'm trying to track down rivets and I'll get it patched up permanently.
It was a really windy thunderstorm. The bus has no wind protection, its just out in the middle of 20 acres of cow pasture. I forgot to latch the hatches when I last closed them, and the wind just ripped them right off. They were so brittle and cracked anyhow. Complete shite.

I'm thinking about buying one or two of these nice name brand units then adding some small battery or solar powered fans later. They want more than double for electric fans in these. https://www.google.com/shopping/prod...CIcBEKYrMAI4PA
I'll see how much they are at some local rv stores.
