Thanks to Bobs kindness, a little dinero, and AAA my wife has a new bus sitting in the driveway.

Next step is to get her to run, and of course she says it needs new curtains!

many adventures to follow...

Sweet! I'm glad you got that bus. I would have hated to see it go far away. Curtains are always a priority on any bus! Very Happy

Now that the bus is running I figured it was time for an update. It still needs some mechanical fine tuning but in the meantime my wife decided to tackle the interior.



Initially we were going to relaminate the cabinets but after stripping them and seeing the quality of european plywood we decided to stain them. It takes a considerable amount of prep work but the the end product is slick. We decided to turn the spre tire compartment into storage for our camp stove and lantern.





finished product


While the cabinets were out we decided to replace the carpet with some left over laminate.
