I made videos of this whole build. started in December finished a couple of weeks ago. almost done.


I've watched them all. Outstanding detail, and practical suggestions. I thought some of the things you were doing during the videos were hacky and short-cuts, but you either explained why they were done, or they turned out quite nice.

Looking forward to the Ruthmann restore!

Last Saturday I drove to the grocery store and purposely added a few miles of cruising to get the liquids flowing. As I approached a four-way four-lane stop sign there was the designated panhandler ready for money on the inside island I was approaching. I keep change to give them but since he didn't have a mask on I was hesitant to interact with him. I played the "didn't see you" game but he still leaned toward me and said, "You wanna sell it?"

I had to laugh.

The same Saturday grocery shopping trip in the very parking spot I use at that grocery store in La Mesa, California is where the news crew filmed the massive looting and bank burnings that began shortly after I left.

Reinstalled safaris with threaded nutplate. After the crash, new safari mounting holes were slightly off so some new holes were needed. Window was a little off with some daylight showing through when closed and latched. Since the daddybus was crunched in the front at Blackstar 2019, I decided to go the full monty and install a threaded plate. Anthony Jr helped out almost just like the first time safaris were installed. Screws on either end lock the plate in place and are covered by two layers of friction tape (holes marked in silver.) I used #6-32 stainless machine screws which allowed for plenty of side/side adjustment and can be enlarged/retapped to #8 or #10 if the threads get buggered out in the future. Now properly aligned and no more light showing through when closed.

It's been sitting in my garage for so many years. I bought it for $400 in 96. I finally got going on this project.

1) Trying to get the broken headlight fastener out. No luck.
2) Cut plastic to replace the original window louvers.
3) installed table.
4)The spice rack was in pieces. Reassembled and tried to save it
5) working on the wiring. The fuse block is really tricky

I move the box with BADD disc brakes from the house to the workshop next to the bus (that arrived last Sept). Stared at it wondering if I should finish it or sell it. Opened the doors to inspect the interior to ensure no mice made their way into it (YET).
