OK...so I got the move done, built some walls, shelves and a workbench and now I am finally back to working on the bus! The new space is great but relocating everything was a royal PITA...and expensive.

Going at the bus from several angles. Cut out more rusty metal and made room for an electrical box at the same time. Giving the floor a final going over and getting it down to clean metal by removing 70 year old asphalt and welding up a few more holes I have found. Then doing some more work on the dash/firewall and steering.

There are are a couple of pix of my attempt at body work and the hole for the electrical stuff on the album page below.

Added a few pix to the album below of work done after the big move. Cut some big holes out then filled'em back in...removed some paint and put more back on...and added a bit more insulation.

Still pluggin' away. Got all the rust replaced with new panels on the rear, built in a through-wall box for my electrical (house) panel, some interior walls and I'm now installing the mount for a set of freshwater tanks. As always...pix on Flickr below.

Been doing a work all over the bus lately. Hoppin inside and out. Got some much needed sheetmetal that allowed me to start constructing the dash/firewall and mounting some of the stuff that will go through it. Steering, brakes, stuff like that. Added some sheet metal outside and some marine ply inside.

Posted some more pix in the Flickr album. Back to work.
