So we got her, but I've not pictures of the outside - proper...
the first time we got the bus we took measurments , and lost them.
so this time I took measurments AND pictures with some questions about what the hell we are doing. cause none of us has barely any exeperience.
we are determined though. and that's enough.
you know, like the elephant that banged a chicken.
So first thing's first, I am trying to understand what space I can use under the bus.
there is no built-in storage so ill have to make metal cages\rails to fit the plumbing,fresh water etc, which areas do I need to keep empty, or clear for certain services. I would really appreciate any help, advice or constructive comments.
That's middle left cavity, or atleast that's how ive names this space:
I'm trying to figure out if it's easier to have the fresh water and waste water on one side or have the plumbing on two sides.
the biggest reason im in a dillema is that the right side cavity is much smaller:
the space is taken up by these 3 things which I have no IDea what they are, or what they do, they do seem to be important considering they are bolted to the bus and came with it:
Maybe the back right cavity with the fuel tank is a good place for a black water tank or compost?
the back left cavity is probably for tools. maybe electric box seeing it's right next to the batteries
the guy I bought it off of added these 2 before he abandoned the project.
and there's this little thing as well, not sure what to do with it, but I guess it will work itself out... right?
so far for looking under the bus, I took measurments of most things I thought I would need. and ill try to upload a sketch of the space I have soon + what I intend to do in it.
first bit we took out of the inside:
it has all this black tar stuff under, it's a little bit sticky, not sure what it is (someone said it might be sound insulation?), or if I could put wool insulation straight unto it.
also, it looks like everything is glued with this red stuff, which I'm guessing ill need to get rid of before I put in insulation and enentually wood panels (emily wants it to be all wood panels inside, like floor boards but I'm hoping lighter).
the floor is actually only a 40mm plywood layer. dosen't seem to have any metal sheet under it. which is either good or bad, im not sure, I figured I'd rip it all out, but not it seems like it's the only bad I've got...any thoughts on this would be great, I wanna double check cause it was 39C outside and really humid, but im pretty sure it's just plywood places unto the bus still frame.. just seems odd. but I wouldnt know.
and here's some for the engine-heads
this really had a nice vroom to it
it's a start, hoping to keep this updated regularly, but im pretty crap at that, I promise to try!
