Re: 1 of a kind
hey there...thanks Griff. you are right, I am a proud parent. specially now that I got'r running...IS AWSOME!
And thanks Shortbus, she is nice. I been searching for many years for "something ODD"... think I found her. My plans are easy...Outside will be restored to original (colors, lettering, etc) but inside will be camperized in a late 60s / early 70s theme. I want people to see a regular looking bus outside, but when they look inside, they will see a usuable camping interior. Basically I want people to have"flashbacks" of "the good ole days" but....the interior will not be set up HIPPY style. I have found a wrecked late 60s trailer with a near perfect interior, would be perfect (except for the BLUE appliances) or I may just build from fresh. Either way, it will be a fun project. I just finished getting it running and fixed the clutch...so we got our 1st LIL DRIVE...yeeeeeeeeehaw...next is welding and some body work, before the snow comes, then it ill be inside time.
btw Shortbus...altho I have no formal training or anything, I "just do it" I think every1 has the ability and know-how, nomatter what the task.
welp. time to shower off some 7 year old gas...smells like hell
