I spent some time this morning clearing out all the panels and putting them on the curb, its just not worthwhile for me to take them to the scrap yard. Let the youngster in the (cleanish) bus to look around and then tore into the floor. I got about 1/3 of the flooring up, so far no real rust. I have replaced the pile of sheet metal with cut up plywood and rubber floor mat.

As a Temp seating arrangement I am going to get a set of the brackets my 3rd row expedition seat clicks into and just swap the bench to the bus for weekend outings. This may be a bad idea, we will see.

After awhile of no progress, starting to get back at it.


Replaced the driver wheel bearing- this sucked but not super horrible, bus is driveable again.


Tore down to chase the diesel leak. 6 hours and a couple margaritas later--- well long story short whoever replaced the fuel pump didn't tighten the hose clamp on the high pressure line. Put it back together, no more diesel leak.


Got the governor reprogrammed. Met the head mechanic of the local school district by chance and he did it for me. CALL YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL if you need to do engine code stuff. Also checked injector pressure and whatnot. Bus goes 68mph now vs 56. Much better. Also getting some better tires after the school year.


Buying insulation this week. Thinking foil foam board and leaving an air gap. dunno.


Hi Chris.

Yeah the whole kids thing kinda put the brakes on plans. Demo is complete though so I need to just get off my butt and build it.
