Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

Muchas gracias!
for all the kind words from other skoolie owners and forum watchers.

its finally coming together.

couple more coats of poly and those cabinets will be ready to install.


and the bench to follow.

i went to the upholsterer today... dropped of the bench seat and the bus seats. i'm tired of making decisions about the bus, fabric choices glaze my eyes over, so i gave him some pictures of the bus and said 'surprise me'.

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

Seats and headliners went off to the upholstery guy today



i got some new holes cut out for my battery monitors



and one problem.....

this headliner in stuck in there..... there seems to be a tab behind the wall that is fastened to the 2x4 horizontal joists of the wall..... yikes...... to pull it out right means the bed has to get removed.

im gonna think a day or 2 and see if i can find a better way.

Wow!....Looks like quite a bit of basic infrastructure is already on the inside. Seems like a nice, tight ride.
