Stage 21 Part 4: Installing External Storage Boxes-Doors & Hinges

Now came the time to cover the sides. Chittybang actually sat with her "skirt off" for a month or so I think before we got around to doing the hinges, but it got done! We ordered these piano hinges off of amazon here, made sure they were weldable too. Then we welded one side of … Continue reading Stage 21 Part 4: Installing External Storage Boxes-Doors & Hinges

Stage 21 Part 3: Installing External Storage Boxes-Other side and Hanging Battery Box

The other side of the bus was going to be a little different. Not only did we have two storage boxes to hang, but we also needed something sturdy enough for the Battery Box, which also holds 4 (made for up to 6) Deep Cycle batteries (CR 260) and they are heavy as HELL!! Here … Continue reading Stage 21 Part 3: Installing External Storage Boxes-Other side and Hanging Battery Box

Stage 21 Part 2: Installing External Storage Boxes

Yes, the long awaited part 2 as to how in the heck we installed the storage boxes under the bus. Thanks to a good friend's knowledge (Logan, thanks man!), he allowed us to pick his brain and helped us develop some good braces to hold the boxes to the chassis of the bus, without having … Continue reading Stage 21 Part 2: Installing External Storage Boxes

Stage 24: Personalizing Walls and Adding Braces

Here we are...still contemplating those damn wainscotting walls...but the great thing about a project like this is that we had so much to do, we could float onto other projects while we contemplated others. Sometimes it is best ot just clear your brain and move onto something else and then....the idea will come to you:) … Continue reading Stage 24: Personalizing Walls and Adding Braces

Stage 22: What We Thought Was Next- Hanging Walls

So if you couldn’t tell by the title, we messed this step up. Not really messed it up, but just did the work and realized it was not going to work in the long game. We thought covering the walls was next. We bought some wainscotting panels and cut and.. Then we hung it up … Continue reading Stage 22: What We Thought Was Next- Hanging Walls

Stage 21: Installing External Storage Boxes Part 1

Living Tiny means there is no room for hoarding. Even after selling a majority of our stuff and moving in with a room mate (meaning we have what we need), it still seems like we needed some extra places to store things like camping gear, tools, books, out of season clothes, etc. since we will … Continue reading Stage 21: Installing External Storage Boxes Part 1

Stage 20: New Windshield & RV Ladder

We ended up getting a big nasty crack in the windshield. I think it was due to the rubber around the windshield being stuck behind in the glass in some places causing pressure points in the glass. Either way, our friend was friends with a glass guy, Lucky Us! Thanks Jim! So he came out … Continue reading Stage 20: New Windshield & RV Ladder
