Iím now working on fuel tank cage .
I put together a better welding cart that uses the push button things ... like crutches do to adjust there size ...
So this cart hold gas. All casters swivel and brake and can be disassembled for mobile use and storage .
The tank cage is made from using the old two cages I had front the bus and the one that came with the new tank i bought ...
i need to figure out if I want my fill neck on driver or passenger side .... it would be about 2ft from the rear if on driver side and about 6ft from the rear if on passenger side so either way a lot of the bus will be blocking another pump if stopped at anything but a truck stop ... and more out of way on driver side due to the fill neck having to go into the floor and slopes down into tank

Bus looking sharp. Love the door relocation. Everything you're doing is so strange from the perspective of an ordinary bus, yet it all looks natural like it came that way from the factory.

Man I appreciate that . Yeah the whole plan was to have the bus flat form and look more like an rv ... although a conventional would be way easier to work on engine wise... Iíve seen some with fender flares and a redone front end that look awesome ...

Glad to see you've made some progress, I've really enjoyed watching your build. I love the exhaust location and I'm really digging the custom made box doors; looks like you're maximizing your undercarriage for storage.

Thanks for keeping an eye on the build too . It’s motivating to share and get feedback . Yes I’m trying to maximize storage everywhere haha . Under the stairs and since I did roof raise might as well go even further and add the under bay storage . One is going to be dedicated to Lithium batteries for solar . For now that’s the plan unless I can’t insulate properly . It’s the door just before the exhuast . I love the look of it now and always go outside just to chill and check it out more then work on it haha . The other doors will just house loose essentials and a lot of tools . I’ve been eyeing some solar panels recently and might pick up those and saving for some tiger spray foam . It sucks that the price of wood is going up because I’m getting very hasty and just want to insulate and then worry about running and hiding eletrical and plumbing later

This is looking great. It's making me think I need to do something like this with my skirt. My plan for a while now has been to piano-hinge the existing skirts and build the underbody storage behind that (so the skirt would basically be a facade in front of the real boxes) but just removing the skirt (which is rusted through around the wheel wells and generally banged up) and rebuilding the whole thing like you're doing is very appealing.

Just more work.

Yeah it’s alot of work it’s been a few months for me but I’m not very consistent ...
I wanted to lower the skirt to match the height of the front bumper . While also cutting away the old door and how it had a lower point then the rest of the bus. I like the idea of hinging the skirt though . I would think that would make the storage doors only be as big as the skirt ... mine are like 19” under the floor rails i think the skirt might have been 14 or somewhere around there

Another Nissan Quest sunroof ! Good work on the transition ... I wish I would’ve raised higher to get a better angle of the sunroof and just a little more headroom . But ohh well I checked out you insta and gave a follow . Did you route conduit or any electrical wire chases before spray foam .... or is it sprayed in

i ran my runs of 120VAC in conduit, the 12vDC is zip tied right to the conduit in most places. Then i had the foam sprayed.

Oh yeah I see how shallow the angle is on yours! I was able to keep the 3rd brake light and glass defroster from mine. 3rd brake light is wired into the clearance light circuit. how is yours fairing with leaks? Ive had a pain tracking down the last little dribble of a leak in mine.... I did 16" raise so that puts the tailgate at a pretty good angle. It doesn't leak around the opening/ gasket. seems to be infiltrating elsewhere... hinge holes...

Still havenít got around to wiring . Hahaha

Yeah the hinge holes are leaking on mine and some other random holes need to be patched . Damn the defroster and light would be cool to still have . I see youíve been making good headway
