12. Gallon tank. Used for $275 Ohh yea.! Time for more fun. I found (2) acess doors on ebay (2) 30" 7 1/2" acess doors that i found will fit perfectly on the bottom rear of both sides, so few more large holes to cut soon.

Hell yeah. I have something similar you can purchase the Lowes installed on the ceiling in my first bus. Festival folk and party people are always impressed and flock like moths to a flame.
I hope I can get my finished entryway, trim, and the edges as clean as you've got yours. Looks top notch.

Q8I plan on just adding a bigger wheel to the madness,
I need to send my housing and back plate to the machinest so he can open it up some more, i dont know why i do the things i do but i just do.

I just want to show everyone how much you can squeeze out of your powerstroke, i guess..

***From left to right.>>>(stockwheel)-(modified stock wheel)
(Beast mode) all for powerstroke.

Compounds are sweet. Best of both worlds. Rapid spool up with big boost when you need it.

Got my access door for propane tank installed, need some paint & fine tuning but hunger & darkness took over. All i need is a grinder/ cutoff wheel & buffer wheel to get job done.












Enjoy.!!

Those suckers are amazing. I walked out to my bus today and as I approached the front door I almost walked face first into a 3' web. I could see it attached at the side mirror, something towards the ground and it appeared like noting holding it as the web went away from the bus. I walked a round until I could see the single connecting line in the sunlight and saw that it went completely across the drive an into a tree over 30' AWAY I have a spidey broom, there are masses of spiders and webs in the shop coming out of the floor trusses above. My spidey stick looks like a torch ready to light after my web rounds.
If you ever get the chance to watch a spider spin his web , it is amazing to watch, they can spin a 3' web in 15-20 minutes. There's one on my front porch, builds a web every night at dark and removes in the morning.

Ha i hate walking in webs especially if im on a hiking trail, i learned to let other people go ahead of me to clear the way, They really are amazing insects tho im just glad they arnt as big as they are in 8 legged freaks the movie, they just let the wind carry them and latch on. I have to go inside & under my rigg everyday to clear them out, have a few black widows nesting, killed one still looking for the other.
