Re: 1993 Carpenter/Spartan

Welcome Neal,
Sorry, I haven't visited in a while, been busy with some other stuff. Anyhow, have you got your new bus yet? Sounds just like mine except I have the MT643 instead of the 545. You'll...

Very sad, I hope your kids deal with it as well as can be expected. The human mind is a strange thing. As crazy and sad as this is he was obviously ill as it made sense to him at the time. ...

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Do we know if camp Zoe will be accomodating to partially converted buses? Mine won't be nearly done by then.

Re: alternative to PEX crimpers?

I was told those work great also, but I just have a hard time paying that much for one fitting, that could add up fast.

Re: alternative to PEX crimpers?

I can't quite see them. I did see some push-on fittings at Lowes that would be great if they weren't $5+ each! It looks like good old PVC might be the ticket on this one.

alternative to PEX crimpers?

I was looking at PEX tubing at Lowes, it sure looks like it can simplify the plumbing in a bus. But.....is there an alternative to the $83 crimping pliers? That would steer me away from it.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Did a little more reading on the camp zoe website. Looks like we would want to try for a non-festival weekend, unless you guys want to be around 10000 other people for a "getaway"

Camp Zoe looks beautiful! Sounds good to me. Anyone thought up a date yet? Spring, Summer, Fall? I'm going to try real hard to attend if the date doesn't conflict with something. My wife and kids...

Re: The Beater Thread

Re: Skinning...Sheet metal, where, what and why?

You're welcome! I'm still trying to decide that also. However, I did recently buy some rv windows, so skinning is looking possible.

Re: Skinning...Sheet metal, where, what and why?

aluminun is usually referred to by thickness in inches. I'd recommend .040 to .063

Re: Skinning...Sheet metal, where, what and why?

Not that I'm aware of. If you're concerned about surface finish, galvannealed metal has a nice smooth finish.
