The compressor is sitting on the floor in the corner, unfortunately I didn't get any shots of it before teardown. As you can see, the lines come up right in the middle of the floor (there used to be a bulkhead there because this bus came with a luggage compartment in the rear), so moving the compressor is on my to-do list anyway. It also needs at least some service.
is that the compressor or the evaporator?? it looks more like the floor mount Ducted evaporator that transair makes(made){this model isnt manufactured anymore it doesnt appear}.. at least its not n my current TransAir sales materials.... designed where you could run ducts above the seats along the windows typically...

Finally the weather got more pleasant. I had taped a couple of roof seams with yellow duct tape to see if the leaks would stop..... and they did. The i went to the scarp yard and cut a 26X58 inch out of the roof of a big yellow bus. Photo in album.
Also got a small fiberglass door with hardware to make storage under the bus. I will use three of them on the passenger side. The battery will have to move to the driver side in front of the skirt condenser.
Tomorrow weather permitting I will cut another section for covering three windows..26x86"
I like to get some experience with removing the windows and covering the holes with the metal. I hope this weekend.

Elf Bus E350 Corbeil windows

Nice junk yard weather. Took another piece of the donor bus. ( img)
Took two windows of the Corbeil and fitted the sheet. ( img)
All three of our E350 together the red one and the bulan are both 4x4. (img)
Tomorrow some rust prep for this side and some more pre drilling holes.
The corbeil body is aluminum. I am not sure what to do with the steel sheet. It has small relief in it that will look nice.

I'm not tech savvy with the forum, I just know lots of members have had the problem in the past, and we just hot link a photo to our posts from other sites.

Elf Bus E350 Corbeil door lock

Ok, I leave the images in the album for now. May be a moderator can help out here.

Got a lock from a grumman truck door. Talking about sturdy hardware. Removed the old driver bus closing mechanism and cleaned the old grease out of the Grumman hardware. I wanted a pin in the bottom and top to minimize wind noise and vibration. Added extra mounting holes in the Grumman lock and drilled and tapped holes in the door. The latch slide on the bottom has a slight angle so that during closing the door get pulled closer. The top has a standoff since it has to be behind the top door seal. Welded a piece in the drawbar to make it longer and made a rectangular hole in the first step. So far seems to work good. So far no key mechanism. Just take the handle and square shaft out. Imges follow tomorrow, It got to dark to make proper shots.
