This evening I had the chance to fire up my cooktop for the first time!
As repurposing is perhaps the most relevant theme of a skoolie, I figured I'd make a cooktop out of an old gas range we had sitting in the basement collecting dust.
It had a bad pilot, and the oven was questionable. Lucky for me, these were all associated with the same valve off the manifold. A bit of disassembly, a single plug, and a whole lot of scrubbing later, I have a decent looking cooktop.
Of course I had to add a clock to the blank hole left by the oven knob just to make myself feel creative.
The test run was accompanied by all the smells you can imagine from long forgotten piping that some fool forgot to clean before ignition. Oh joy!
