School Bus Conversion~ Fiberglass Holes #22

Let me start by saying that I am glad we used fiberglass on the holes.  However it sucks! Working with fiberglass is not my favorite thing to do but it sure works great. The outcome is exactly what I wanted 100% waterproof seal that is super strong. I know that a lot of people use eterna bond tape and I did think about using that but wanted to make sure there would be no issues. I think it was like $70 bucks i spent to get all of the fiberglass materials and was money well spent in my book.  I would definitely do fiberglass again if I convert another school bus.

Skoolie Conversion Update #14 Coolant & Heater Removal

Getting splashed with antifreeze is not to much fun but the good news is that NONE GOT IN THE BUS!! So overall I could have saved us a lot of time, if I took a little more time and just looked at the connection in the front. We went to like three or four stores looking for a T connection that would fit the coolant lines. But if I would have looked and paid a bit more attention I would have sen that there was a T connection that I could tap into where all the lines meet in the front. I ended up using this connection point in the end as we didn’t find anything at all of the stores that we went to.

Skoolie Conversion Update #13 Window Install

So the windows go back in just as smooth as they went out. Only had a minor issue with one of the windows going back in had to wack it in with the sledge hammer and used some foam to soften the blow on the window. (sry didn’t slow the video down during that part) All in all everything is coming along quite well.

Walk Around Our New School Bus

Here is the very first video about our new bus. It is just a quick little walk around tour of the bus with the engine running. Not to much else to say about this video seeing as how it is just a overview of the bus. I am going to do another walk through like this video every month to show  all of the progress that we are making on our new school bus.
