Buster Junior's Journey

Hi there. I picked up Baby Buster about 1 month ago and have began his demo/build. He will serve as both a business mobile office type vehicle as well as a camper/explorer for the pack.

Maybe it's just me...
Post-demolition photos somehow seem so very much more satisfying stills to stage than the pre-'s.
Enjoy!!!

So it has been a while since i have posted any updates, most likely because the weather has been such a bummer for me as i HATE the cold and therefore have just been chipping away at things here and there. I am very much looking forward to spring time and really committing my time.

Ran the most of the 12 volt and all of the 12 volt wiring but still need to set up the distribution panel.

The walls have a layer of Fat Mat Rattle Trap adhered directly to the aluminum. Then the pink foam insulation boards. And 1/4 inch plywood on surface. The plan is to have 1/4 inch T&G panel glued to the plywood and have the panels screwed to the studs and have them as removable sections...just in case (displays the confidence in my wiring).
