I'd take pictures of the fittings at the ends, and go to a truck parts supply store (not dealership with their own mechanics) and see what they have as far as fittings, replacement hose, etc. The one on the air valve looks almost like a plumbing compression fitting, but I'd rather have the replacement in hand before tearing apart a working one.

Luggage bay door issues

Havent hase the greatest weather here and so ive been working on odd and end jobs around the bus and found a major problem with 1 of my luggage bay doors. Its completely rusted. Went to open it and when I did the support arms broke. I know that the doors are crazy expensive but anyone know how to go about replacing or fixing this? Thought about calling MCI and asking if there are replacement parts still in stock but im afraid because of the age of my bus, im going to be out of luck. Already started calling to salvage yards too looking for parts.

Those doors were used for a long time, parts should be easy to get but expensive new. Try the wrecking yards, watch out for rot, eventually they all rot out like yours did.

Windows

Wow has it been awhile since I've been on and posted anything! Lots of new progress with the bus! Everything inside has been gutted and new sub-floor has been complete. We taped out the layout and now are starting on the window process and here's where I would like help/input. Im looking to pull out all the windows on the bus, wield new support and put in smaller rv windows and then re-skin the bus. The problem is I can find windows that aren't tiny to put back in. Ive checked eBay and where we live we are around absolutely nothing. Any suggestions?
