Today was a pretty productive day I got paint and flooring for the inside of the bus and I was able to take out the old carpet and the girlfriend painted while I wired in some 12v lighting.

Some pics of the inside when we got the bus



Some pics of the new paint on the side walls



I mostly will be working on the bus during the night so was racking my brain on what kind of 12v lights I would put in when I came across a set of off-road led flood lights that I had sitting in my toolbox. So wired them up and mounted them in the middle of the bus thinking it would be a temporary solution while I was working on the bus. But I hooked them up and was extremely impressed with how well they lit up the bus and how decent the looked in there I think they will stay permanently.


They are definitely a huge improvement over the stock lights by themselves you couldn't even see the floor at night.

Good luck and welcome to skool!! It's fun.
I like your bus I was hoping to find one the size of yours with the side entrance but couldn't resist this one when I found it local and cheap. I really like your fuel jug holder on the back of your bus I might have to steal that idea lol.

Cheap is good!

Steal it. Everything I create (outside the office) is open-source. ;) Take it, use it. Keep the girls happy.

Got some more paint up



Also I took it to my work and put it on the lift and checked everything over did a oil change. And today I pulled a black water tank out of a junk rv for it.

I was planning on using a portable toilet in there but my grandpa had this one on a rv he is scrapping so I got it for free just had to pull it out. (That made for a fun afternoon lol)

Finally got some progress done on the bus, I got the black water tank mounted up and the toilet installed. Also got a good chunk of the flooring down just have to figure out how I'm going to route my vent pipe out of the bus and get some fittings and pipe for that.

Is there enough strapping to hold that tank when it's full of....black water? It will be heavy...and messy.

I plan on adding a few more straps in just to be safe ( I think this is one of those situations that I would rather be safe than sorry lol). I think with a few more straps it ought to be good enough.

Also, might want to place a piece of old bike inner-tube or rubber between the tank and strapping, prevent chafing a hole in that most unpleasant tank.
