Portable control box
Zen Bus
My Friday night: rigged up a portable control box to be able to start my engine on the stand. My extra fuel pump and all the wires fit inside of it for storage. When Iím using it wires feed out the sides.

Inspiration taken from several other images Iíve seen of late. Thanks Samba!

PS I do want to add an oil pressure light.

Alternator hole in cooling plate
Zen Bus
New alternator from Napa. One of the B+ bolts was too tall and grounded to the cover plate, melting a hole. I ground down the bolt and cleaned up the hole a bit. Fingers crossed that I didn't fry the alternator.

I used the tinfoil covered bubble wrap I found at Lowes. It was easy and relatively cheap. Important since I (like most) work on my bus one paycheck at a time.

the squares look a lot better with the pattern alternated (I broke down and read the directions...)
Quarter inch round against the wall and 1inch nosecap by the door (behind the driver and passenger it'll get speaker boxes soon)

Fourth and final layer, found these at Ikea of all places, but they were exactly what I was looking for. They are plastic backed grass-mat-like squares (but since it's Ikea they were all 1ft 1in NOT 1ft like you'd think...
