Re: anchoring to the celing in a bluebird

depending on the bus, most newer ones have an inside panel, insulation, and the roof panel. i think they are probably 20 gauge thickness or so steel. also in there is the wires for the speakers if equipped, and the wires for the overhead lights. If i were going to put a tank or something inside... next to the roof, i would most likely support it from the floor if i had no welder to build a proper roof structure for support.

Re: anchoring to the celing in a bluebird

thanks chev, ive decided to scrap the gravity fed idea, its just easier to run a few wires for a 12 volt pump than to do the math and build somethign that will hold up to the forces of 250 something lbs of water weight moving stopping and bounching in a bus by the celing....

was going to just use a 40$ harbour freight pump, if it craps out in a few years, just get another...

thanks again!
