- Thanks glad you are enjoying the thread. I actually still have the culinary specimens, I'm Gunna build a terrarium for inside the bus to grow them. But that will be the final project for when everything else is done for a celebration 🎉....I'll definitely keep updating when I can.
-- The air horns underneath are still super loud they are rated for 172 db. I don't think they are legal to have so mounting anywhere else probably isn't recommend, But I drilled out the holes to hopefully send more air threw to make them louder, I also got a pressure regulator to adjust noise level as needed. I unfortunately have not been able to test it out other than the time I installed it. I used the wrong hoses & fittings so it's been on the back burner for now.
--The DMV, the highway patrol, smog stations have been nothing but a nightmare for me. I can't tell you how many times I've been back and forth between the three. I never in my life have been more frustrated about anything ever, this takes the complete cake. Half of it is my fault for modifying it so dam much. ( It still isn't registered or insured...)
I didn't get it inspected by the DMV cause my dumbass took the VIN # off the door ( DONT EVER EVER EVER DO THAT......)
. . So they flagged me to the highway patrol. It took a few trips but highway patrol passed me finally. Than the smog station failed me cause the obd2 sensors we're not cycling. So I haven't been back yet, gunna go within the next few weeks tho.
I didn't install the air ride cause my dad said it was stupid & pointless, I was living with him at the time & usually he knows more than I do. I was Gunna do it myself I still have them & I'm guuna eventually put them in cause you know why the hell not....
As far as the countertop art I just found a poster that I like & ordered a custom size & fit for the kitchen. It definitely is not easy on a large size like that, I wish I had another person to help me do the pour, I messed up by not mixing two epoxy kits together in one batch instead of two separate pours. The dresser was easy cause of the smaller size, one pour covered it all.
This project sure has been a real experience. Their is only two things I would have done differently now out of all I have done. Wich is pretty bizzare, cause everything was a life lesson regardless. Those two things would be
** #1 DO NOT TAKE OFF THE VIN NUMBER OFF YOUR DOOR. I did it to paint it. Do NOT DO IT. it is a nightmare.....
#2 do not thow away your stock air intake if you live in California & are modifying your bus. You will need it for smog.
I will say.. the full time bus life has been one of the best decision I ever made... I hope I answered all your questions enjoy your stay abroad. If anything else comes up for question don't hesitate, I didn't spend years wrenching on my bus for me to just hoard info.
