The B Mafia Bus

Hey all! Decided that I needed to make a work log for my bus conversion. I introduced myself in the newbie area here is a link so you can see what I'm working with.


Things done
took the lift out
all the seats out
The rails are finally out! ....... Fu*k those things.. there was about 60 bolts that I could not get to under the bus blocked by ac fuel or something else, Ground them out.

need to finish pulling off reflective tape to get ready for paint this weekend. also pull up the rubber now that everything is off the floor.

Super lucky to have a family that loves to tinker with stuff

Looks like a real nice platform for a build. I have to do everything by myself, so I am unfamiliar with the concept of 'help'. No, I'm not bitter.

Lift sure is handy for lifting heavy stuff, might have waited till later to remove.

Nice job. You are lucky to have help. I like how you're overcoming bus issues by just using common sense.

I'm another one that works alone or it doesn't get done.

I am at a loss to understand how the people of this world compose names for various things.

Example:

My observations indicate that the two rarest commodities on this planet are referred to as..."Common" Sense and..."Common" Courtesy.

ha!! im another who isnt lucky enough to have help... masny of my bus projects would go much easier if i did..

somehow I have always managed to build some cool stuff by myself.. then again my family dis-owned me and most of my friends are like 'ewwww theres dirt on that i cant touch that...'..

alas the fun and accomplishment of a family project makes this bus even more your own as it gorws from all your participation!!

lookin good!!

Lovin the blue... I realized the blue "tri," is painters tape.. wouldnt it be cool to actually trim the bus in another color blue..
