Nice $5 door! If I ever get a full size bus I hope I can score like that.

I've got a little upgrade project I might get to today that involves my inverter, a jig saw, and my dashboard. No promises yet though!

Paper tape! 7 bit Baudot. You win.

So I hate to dominate this thread with my own parts but I have a new shiniest part today! Wednesday it was summer, Thursday it was fall, it's Friday so of course it is now winter in eastern Idaho! And at some point since February, my glow plug relay died.

Presenting, the Napa GPR109 relay! Under 30 dollars at your neighborhood Napa store.

The real test will be tomorrow morning... I got it started eventually this morning by bridging the line with a wrench. Is still not warm out but the bus is warm enough that it starts right up anyway.

Here is the old relay btw.
