Been driving the bay to work this week as O.B.'s tires are shot. It has done pretty good but it is very drafty and with no heat it is cold! I have to find some heater hoses so I can connect the heater boxes with the bus so I can get at least some kind of heat.

I have been ordering some stuff for it this week. I have a tag light, seat clamps, shift coupler and some rear tires coming for it. Hope I can get the tires on and the seats secured by next weekend so I can haul some folks around the Christmas lights.

Bryce,

What size hoses do you need? I have some scat tubing and a little factory tubing left you can have. I may not have enough length. I replaced mine on one of my cars from Myco in decatur.

Hooked up my fresh air and heater controls. Now I just got to hook up the cables to the heater boxes and put my hoses on and I will have heat.

Also got the fuel gauge and horn working. The horn connections were just corroded and the wire that connects to the steering column tube was off. The fuel gauge needed a new connector and the ground wire hooked up.

Hooked up the heat today! I think everything works on the bus now! Now I have to fix the oil leak and start putting new seals in to dry it in.

Worked on putting in the headliner today! $27 for three sets of match stick blinds, a little hot glue and a little time.....I think it turned out pretty good. Not a new idea but a cheap and easy alternative to the $200 plus stock headliner.
