Frame / Window Remediation?

Now that "winter" is moving in I'm needing an enclosed area to remove the windows and skin of the bus, but before I do that, I think I need some advise.

Has anyone remediated their bus frame and windows out in the open during cold weather? How did you do it? All the UHaul / storage places are filled up (I didn't realize I needed such a place in time to get one...). Any other ideas for a place to do this at?

Thanks!

wow that all the Uhaul spaces are full... there must be a lot more RV's in the indy area. . the place where i have mine in columbus oh still has quite a few spaces open.

one of the Uhaul centers here in columbus has covered astorage space but doesnt have it listed on their website.. might want to do google streetview or earth on possible sites to see if they in fact have storage but not listed.

There are a LOT of RVs around. I still see people moving about in them on my way to and from work.

I'm investigating storing / working on the bus a county fairgrounds, but the contact I have to find out if I can or can't isn't communicating with me right now. Thus I'm trying to work out other arrangements, but coming up empty. Guess work on the bus proper is going to have to stop until better weather arrives in the spring. I hate loosing 4-5 months....

You also need a vertical speed indicator, at least on final approach.

Or just fake it, and feed the backup horn into your headphones.

That would be a pip, to see a skoolie trundling down the road with a little basketball hoop mounted vertically on top, turning to tune in the ADF, ending up driving directly into the headwind......
