Well today begins a new work week, which means pictures from my one day of weekend progress! Painting the bus had a not-so surprising amount of prerequisites I was putting off: namely cleaning entirely, and covering the man holes. I also covered the small bolt/screw/nail holes with some rubber flashing tape. (featured here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o02_s00
) the pictures in the end will show these, they just look like electric tape on the floor. I don't know if this is a good plan or not, I just copied the good news bus and was into the idea.
We painted the bus! The insulating beads(or should I say sand) came in time and we mixed them into the primer 1/3 ratio. We went through 3 quarts of primer throughout this process.
We painted the walls as well, Nana in action
my shirt was probably two sizes too small
This was from a few days ago, I pulled the rear walls off (which I was putting off along with a few other things which I forget). I was reading on one of the forums about people not wanting to remove the walls and insulation so I thought I would take a picture of the insulation I pulled out of the rear wall.
Below is the manhole, I finally took a clear picture of it. I'm assuming this is my transmission? ( I clearly know little about mechanics). Since it was made accessable, I decided that I will try to make it so it can be accessed for future use.
Here we have another hole, my first question is the cable to the right coming out of the floor which you can barely see - I suspect it has something to do with a lift which may've been in the bus before? I am not sure though
My next question is a close up of the prior shown hole, it has two dc cables in it, what do you think this is for?
Then lastly, what do you think this thing is? it is around maybe the front left corner of the driver seat, I have no idea what it is!
I have changed my priorities, getting the bus running again is the top priority! Rather than insulating the full bus, I intend to insulate/ply the front section so I can get the heaters re-attached and the driver seat re-bolted in. From there I will re-evaluate my priorities, but I'm thinking something along the lines of: dc electrical sorting/cleaning, water/gas/electric layout planning.
That's all for now folks, and thank you for watching over my progress!
