Re: 1989 GMC Aggie Tailgater

Well I kind of got the bus back from the painter. He needs it back to finish the top off. I was able to paint some of the interior and install a stereo. I still didn't get to paint over the crappy almond color. That will probably have to wait until next year to become smoke gray.

Simple two tone paint scheme.

Pioneer deck, Punch 6"x9"s, and a 120 GB iPod. I also redid the switch plate and added a volume control for an external rear speaker.



I mounted a little sub I got on closeout from partsexpress behind the driver's seat in the battery bank enclosure/bench. There's an amp in there as well.



On the left you'll see the speaker terminal plate for the external speaker. I'll eventually cover it with an external two gang plate cover.

Re: 1989 GMC Aggie Tailgater

The bathroom was painted to resemble the old outhouse that was always on top of the Aggie bonfire. I also painted the benches maroon, the bathroom interior white, and applied bedliner to the driver's area. Hopefully, I'll get some better pics this weekend once I get everything cleaned up.

Sorry, I missed your question earlier. I'll have to measure in a couple of weeks when I see the bus again.

Re: 1989 GMC Aggie Tailgater

Nice tailgater, I was wondering how you have your batteries and inverter set? I am looking at an inverter/charger setup with maybe two 255 amp hour batteries and then have a generator backup. I have also been told the inverter should be true sine wave so you don't damage your flat screen and audio equipment.
