Thanks Penguin will do that most definitely.
I also went with the gas engine about the same reasons as you do; but parts for this engine are all over compared to a diesel; I like diesel BUT they cost way way more to fix.
I still Have not gotten a response back from ElDorado and will be making a call to them?
I am learning already I can not even start building any cabinets until I have ALL the appliances there to measure them.
The biggest thing that has brought almost everything to a screeching halt is dealing with sellers on an online auction - WOW... I send money ALLOT of money and their "free" shipping is not really free despite my carefully checking their auction information. So now I am trying to get $1,000.00 back from multiple sellers. I have now decided to Make the shower pan out of fiberglass and will have to make the positive mold for it. More routing and sanding to come just to lay a jell coat and glass mat.. Once the base is made I'll make the surround out of FRB and seal it.
I have looked for a drivers mirror but can't find one so guess I'll have to go to a glass supplier and get some and make it.
AC is acting like a Frankenstein and debating either pull the whole thing out and use the condenser box on the drivers side to hold my 4 8D batteries.
I am looking for sliding windows for this critter? It gets really hot inside. The roof is well insulated but the windows let it all in.
The bus is built on a Chevy P30 frame and I am wondering will a trailer hitch for this van fit on the bus?
I've got the stove top - 3 burner, Two 23 gallon tanks - gray water and poop tank in. 4.5 cubic GE reefer, 30 gallon fresh water tank and .9 cubic microwave
Anyone have items they want to sell let me know and I am interested.
Our better halves; they do the most interesting things
While we were removing the seats I showed her very carefully what was to be done on how to put the box end of the wrench on the bolt head and where to brace it against the seat leg AND make sure your fingers were not between them. So I got back under the bus, put the air wrench on the bolt and yelled you ready; she replied yes; I said okay firing air wrench. Brrriiiipppp SCREAM SCREAM SCREAM..... From inside of the bus from her. So I fly out from under it, my head makes contact with an immovable part of the bus, I am seeing stars and wobbling around and ask what? what?... She cries the wrench is eating her dress???
I look at her with watering eyes and saw she had done the EXACT opposite from what I had shown her to do with the wrench. It had spun around and wound up her dress like you wring out a towel.
Now I had to take her out to dinner after buying her a new dress. I wonder??
I am compiling pictures and getting them in order and will start posting them in a few weeks.
