Re: The Dirtybus...

I found an RV Salvage yard that just opened up out in Bonney Lake...

They have a good selection for just getting started and the prices are really good...

I picked up 5 windows, all have screens except for the one that is non-functional... $100 for all 5...



Also bought a 21' awning for $150... It's complete and in great shape, only has one tear about 2" long at the end right where it attaches to the RV(easy fix)... I still need to find a way to get that back to the house... I don't have a way to tow the car trailer until I put a hitch on the bus...

I also picked up a roll of some sound dampening insulation from a buddy for free... I might use it where the old bus windows used to be... Thanks again Matt...





Have to go out and get after some more grinding and cutting... Nothing exciting, but has to get done to start the cool stuff...

Re: The Dirtybus...

i really like the shorty flat nose....

im considering a shorty conventional nose (well mid size)...

ive been scared away from the flat nose types because i read they are much harder to work on them and therefore more expensive to do so (engine work)...

but i really like the way that looks...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Went and picked up the 21' awning yesterday... Thanks for the assist Dustin...

Got the side door off and gonna start grinding away at the rivets, then rebuild it so it has the same shape as the rest of the bus... I would never be able to use the side door with the awning open and I really don't want to work around it with the floor plan...

Re: The Dirtybus...

The stove came today... I pulled out the slate that I'm gonna use for the hearth...

Gonna build a riser with storage underneath for fire wood... Thinking it'll be about a foot tall... Then some corrugated metal for the walls behind it that will be mounted away from the wall about an inch and a half for air flow...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Nice stove. How's slate compared to fire bricks when used as flooring under a wood stove? And how thick is that slate? Good looking, a lot better than staring at all this firebrick I've got sitting around here.

Re: The Dirtybus...

A lot of hearths are built out of slate... I plan on using a fire proof adhesive and a dark grout... Then seal it so it looks wet and the colors will pop... I've done a lot of slate work for customers and everyone loves the depth of the colors after it's sealed...

I'll probably use hardi backer under it as well... That should help with heat dissipation being made from concrete...
