I've been working on the house and only thinking about the bus. I'm sad to say I'm not sure this project will continue.... Here are the most recent pictures. I may restart the transformation in 2018, or I'll try to sell beautiful thing. If I do end up finishing this, I'm going to need some ocean creature decals.

Per usual, it's been a while.
I've insulated, begun wiring and plumbing, installed diesel heater, generator, batteries, inverter/charger, and shower. It's been... you know.
I hope to have the back half done in April 2018. Selling the house should really get me motivated to finish kitchen after that.
I'm getting pretty nervous about finding a place to park the thing. Hoping to find a farmer cool with the idea and an RV park for one night a week. Not sure when/if adventuring will occur.

That is one FINE looking Crown.

From what I have seen, the Crown is the most difficult bus to do a proper roof raise on. You have done an amazing job..

I hope you are able to carry on.

Well that answers the question of how those Crowns would look with an awesome roof raise... Very nice work you are doing there.

If I had the skills to do a roof raise on a Crown like that I would be standing on Crown_Guy's front porch with my checkbook in hand.

Raise looks great but them front windows are awesome.
Looks like it would have been made that way.

Thank you everyone. I try to do things right. Only problem with that is, I'm the one deciding what is right. It wasn't that tricky raising the roof, the only part I recall cursing was the windshield.
The electrical has been a pain. From the automatic switch tripping the gfci to the automatic generator starting unit only being able to start the generator. I keep moving along, I want to finish the back half this weekend. More pics will follow.
