Re: The Dirtybus...

If that tub of stuff is silica gel you can heat it in the oven to drive the moisture out of it (let it cool in the oven with the door closed) and use it over and over again. Jack

P.S. if it is in a plastic container switch it to a metal or glass container before heating.

Re: The Dirtybus...

Had the bus out this weekend, it's nice and comfy...


Bunk hooked me up with some RV lights... Thanks again... And thanks to Jimmy for dropping them off... Now I need to order the led pucks to mod the lights...





Thinking about building a bunk like this in the front above the drivers seat...

I just read your entire thread.

Amazing job. This one stands in a class of it's own.

Re: The Dirtybus...

This is the second time that I have read your entire thread.

I must say that i am very impressed with the amount of work that you have done on your bus.

It is an amazing looking machine. It surely is one of the best bus builds that I have ever seen.

I admire your fabrication skills and the tenacity it took to put it all together.

Re: The Dirtybus...

Did you ever cap off wall? 2in wide .06 wall alum. Channel would probably work

Re: The Dirtybus...

The Flux Capacitor in the bus...



Ted knew I was loading up the bus for an outing and wouldn't leave it...



Used the bus as a parts getter one day when the truck blew a rad hose...



Picked up some free carpet cut offs for the bedroom area... Ted approves...



Getting cozy back there... It's nice to get up to take a leak without putting on shoes...



Installed the lights Bunk hooked a brutha up with...

Thanks... I grew up with a dad that welded on the Alaskan Pipeline... I have been groomed to fabricate from birth...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Is your dog a puppy or a mini Dobie? Good looking dog.

I noticed that you have the same high velocity tower fan that I had. I love that thing. I used mine almost 24/7 for five years. The motor finally died. I can't find another one around here.

Thanks for the pics.

Rudy have you checked Walmart online? You can have it shipped to your local store if they don't carry it. Good Luck!!
Thanks. I will do that.

Great build, love the colours of your bus. I off-road too, amazing how fighting for public use trails is a Canada and US issue. I have fought for trail rights here for the last 8 years (great sticker btw). keep up the awesome work. I had a buggy but now am back to a heavily modified jeep. Both are on my bus build below if you want to check em out.

Looks like this thread died about 3 years ago, but I'm going to leave my comment anyway.

Greetings from Kent, WA. Your build is awesome and I would love to see it in person! Also all the pictures after the 25/26th page look like they're gone. If you happen to feel like updating them//or emailing them to me (kamotai@gmail.com) I'd loove to take a peak!

Hope all is well, I really enjoyed reading through your build!

I'm glad you bumped this up. I was actually thinking about this build the other day. One of my favorite builds too. Where are you at Dirtygoat? I have one other thread I'm going to bump up as well.

Is that the same engine as my 1993 7.3 turbo diesel
International I believe

I only have 22 feet total length
Heard it's a little sluggish and underwhelming performance
