    I saw your picture of the lock on the two half doors. Were you able to use the existing hole where there is a lock on the Blue Birds?

    My car is just under 2 tons. Most is right above the axle. To offset the weight behind the rear axle, I have extended the front bumper 16" with my spare in the middle, my house batteries (4) on the right, and my heavy tools,jacks, etc in the left compartment. I was afraid the front might feel light when the car is onboard, but its not.

    Yeah, that's me. Sorry for the delay... haven't been on the forums for a while. What do you wanna know?

    We just noticed you're retired AF crew chief. Our youngest son at Sheppard right now learning to work on F16s, we just got back yesterday from visiting him. Small world!

    Hey, Ken. We're 95% done with our total build, but we're just about 100% done functionally. We started in Oct. 2017, working mostly weekends. I retired in July 2018 and we've been working steadily during the week since then. We also plan on hitting the road full time in the not too distant future.

    We do have the same basic bus, is yours from Colorado by any chance?

    June 2018, started converting 35' 1996 AmTran activity bus with 6'6" roof, 4 factory storage boxes, and electromagnetic driveline retarder. Engine is 250hp with mechanical Bosch injector pump. Hope to have bus functional/usable by late December.
