Re: Introducing my first bus

I finished putting the last little piece of plywood down and added a few more screws to one piece that seemed to move a little while driving. Washed the dome light covers and reattached them. The inside was painted by Ryan last week with white rustoleum. Installed the new lock for the door and had the truck shop flush and fill the coolant. Posted pics on my blog since I get the following message here "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached."

Re: Introducing my first bus

Got the carpet ordered and should be installed in a week or two. Also started on the overhead shelves this weekend.

Re: Introducing my first bus

Got a Sony head unit and four new speakers installed today. Also got a two port 12v power socket installed as well for powering GPS and phone. I did goof up the seat belt and will have to order a new one, but at least I have music when I work now. Uploaded a few pics to my blog.

Re: Introducing my first bus

My bus already had those cheap speakers installed from factory so installing new ones was easy. They where wired a little weird, sharing negative between speakers. They don't sound bad, was worried the metal roof might add some weird sounds but did not notice anything.

Re: Introducing my first bus

Had the carpet installed today and it doesn't look too bad. Also got the new drivers seat belt ordered. I did manage to lock myself out of the bus and am worried the only way back in is to break a window. I will try to maybe go in thru one of the roof emergency hatches if I can get it open from the outside. As always pics on my blog.

Re: Introducing my first bus

Got the windows tinted at Best Buy and they also installed the new seat belt that was broken during the radio install. I had 5% tint put on the side and rear windows and 35% on drivers window and folding door. Uploaded a few bad pictures to my blog.

Re: Introducing my first bus

Looking good. I like the shelving. What screws did you use on those Lbrackets?

Re: Introducing my first bus

The brackets holding it to the bus frame are connected using the screws and holes that hold those metal cover pannels in place. The rest are just basic wood screws from Home Depot. I did use tek screws on the few that need to go into the metal frame.

Re: Introducing my first bus

Just ordered 8 clear lenses to replace the red and yellow flashing lights. Kansas Truck Equipment Co. Inc(http://www.kansastruck.net/default.aspx) can get them for my bus for $5.40 each. The part number for my bus was 4286498 if anyone needs it.
