Simple photos

I just want to get these pictures out of the way so that I can get to the good stuff. They don't need much explanation. These are from the guy I bought the bus from. http://i30.tinypic.com/28jpg4.jpg http://i27.tinypic.com/317ir8l.jpg http://i28.tinypic.com/2yjoh05.jpg http://i30.tinypic.com/24axrt4...

Also

I have some cool photos of a 1966 Chevy truck that had a 10 foot camper welded to a frame thereby giving lots of outside storage bins. I got it in LA. It had a blown 327. I went to see a guy who built a lot of engines for the guys who raced at Saugus speed way. He built me a 383 stroker. That is a 3...

Last night I organized my photos into three sections. I am going to start with some pictures that were taken by the guy who I bought the bus from.

Insulation and Accordion

Bill, The insulation on the floor is 3/4 inch stiff board styrofoam that I got at Home Depot. I laid it on the floor and then siliconed each flooring board to it. I guess it is a floating floor.

Thanks Sharkey. All my pictures are that size. After work today, I will organize my photos and post some with explanations of what is in them. How can I get a cool icon like I see when you and AccordGuy post replies? Perhaps an accordion. I have a 75 watt Seimens panel, 20 amp controller, and four s...

Hi Bill, I asked a diesel mechanic friend of mine to come look at this bus with me. We drove 100 miles in my little pickup truck to go see it. He said it was a honey, so I bought it.
