The rubber squares go under that single splash pan fastener between the bumper bracket and the pan.

The rubber buttons go in the holes under your bus' rear corners to prevent chaffing between the p ...

Bumper assembled

Need to find out where the rubber squares go. They seem a little large to go where i have them.. Also the 2 rubber stoppers that came with the fastener kit. I assume they go in the ...

Printed some custom escutcheons. The wood door panels did not like to be spaced out at handle so made some thicker escutcheons. I didn't have good originals anyway. Also printed a thinner one for the ...

Thanks and no. I could probably be convinced to print the lens though if someone wanted a pair. I will add the final drawings here encase anyone wants t ...

Second one in and got to see how they are at night. Love them. They do a good job of defusing the light but doesn't show well in the photos. On lowest they just have enough light to see.

Used a new filament. A clear PETG from Polymaker. looks great and prints nice. Light lens is clear but LED is warm so gives it a nice yellow l ...

Got the bus out of storage today.

Mounted the table under bench. Fits perfect and doesn't rattle. Very happy.

Started assembling the heater. Mostly just placing stuff and seeing what I need. Going to 3D print a rubber boot for the spark plug and for around glow plug/jet.

I will cut the braded fuel line out ...

Smooth and last coat of primer on. Back side is not perfect but won't show in the reflection and will likely be full of dirt after the first drive anyway. Smile

Table done. That was more work than I expected. Very happy with it though.

Came in at 12 Lbs. I probably could have made it lighter but would have lost strength.

Legs snap in place quite well. I ...

Finally got the outside table top finished. Ended up getting almost done twice and had to sand it all down to clear wood and start over. Never had a problem with any of the other parts I finished.

Primer on the bumper parts.

Looks good but will need a few coats and sanding. Back side of bumper needs work though. Lots of rust pitting so a quick skim coat of filler should do.

Time to get the bus out soon. Still salt on the roads but that should get washed of in a week or two if we don't get any more winter weather.

So getting the rear bumper done. Only a couple years be ...

Found correct paint.

Primer over metal and then a very thin layer of paint. Basically misted it on. Soon as that was tacky I put on a thick coat. Very happy with it.

Now I can start assembly.

How are you keeping the brackets in place?

That is a bit of an experiment. The legs go past 90 so will try to stay up. The screw will have plastic tubing around and the brace will have a narrow spo ...

Set up the table and like the height. Perfect for cooking on while sitting in a chair.
