You need to get that sucker up against the pool with a pool deck on the roof. Dual Purpose while you build, won't have far to go on those hot work days coming up.

Well nothing new to update except the batteries are dead on the bus... I've been MIA all summer on the bus build. I built a car to run in the Gambler 500 race in Detroit.. (that was a blast)





Then we took a family vacation to 1000 islands, Montreal, Quebec, Vermont and Maine.. Over 2500 miles on that trip..









Then as soon as I got back I had to get the xj ready for a 3800 mile trip to Colorado/Moab Ut with a couple jeep friends. I am back and started on the bus again yesterday... Gonna be a great fall and winter..
