Been working on the bus off and on. Here are some pictures to catch up with the underbody box.
Getting it under the skirt required lifting the bus, but the box was such a tight fit that I needed to drop the bus back down so I could use the jacks for help in installation.
Just enough room. If it hadn't been such a pain to install, I'd be pretty happy with my fab work on that build.
Then I set about gathering scraps for my door build. As you can see, I had to weld scraps together to get some of the lengths I needed.
I mitered the corners on this one. Made for some easy welding (my new helmet definitely helped, though!).
Had to make a fancy little notch in the frame to fit around a joist.
Then I was ready for paint!
And here's where it stands today.
I need to figure out a latching/locking system. For now I'm just going to put in a cam latch, because I haven't decided whether I want to lock the box to protect my stuff, or leave it unlocked to ensure quick access to my LP tanks..
I still think I'd like to put trim all the way around the door, and I'd definitely like to reseal the seam just above the hinge.
