And the close-up. This was a bit of a pain to get it anchored properly and not have too much of a bend in the wire going into the box. Stupid little thing probably took 2 hours of figuring and 1 hour of doing. But i am happy with it.

That's about all I am up to. I keep telling myself that 3 hours here and there add up and am trying to stay motivated. Wishing you all a happy build��

Your photos are a huge help to me too. I have zero experience in building anything, so when I look at your photos, I can see the details of how you are putting in the frame foundation, wiring, etc., which in turns steers me in the right direction. Plus it gives me an idea on how nice my current looking disaster (aka bare bones shell of a bus) will look when I get to that stage.



Spring is on it's way, but it's gonna be cold for a few more days yet.


Take care!


Clyn

Nice weather today so was able to get a few more pieces of wood up. One half inch ply wood for bench and table fronts. And built upper half of wall behind driver seat (sorry for the sideways pics).

No big specific purpose for the wall other than a divider from driving zone to living zone. Initially we planned just a knee wall, but plans change as we go along. The refrigerator will live in that corner with a small cabinet surround. Todays update to follow. Thanks for looking at the progress Clynn.

So life has been busy. I really thought that as soon as the nice weather came in that i would start knocking stuff right out. I am actually finding less time to work on the bus than i did in the winter. I did string some puck lights, add a wall sconce, and install a fantastic fan. But i honestly feel that i lost my drive a bit. On a lighter note, i finally made a decision on his exterior. After much research and taking more experienced folks advice into account, i have decided on paint (not vinyl). However, i will not be doing that part myself. Little Buster should be wearing a new color in a couple of weeks. And I am optimistic that his new look will motivate me to find time for his insides. A few pics to follow.

Hi Buster Junior,


Very nice updates! I appreciate putting the hole in the roof for the Maxxfan. I am leaning towards installing mine in the emergency hatch cover.
