Not much really, just a bit of cosmetic rebuilding to keep things interesting... The mechanical work can get tedious, especially when you can't actually see it!!

Today, I redressed internally and externally the drivers door and re attached the reflectors on the near side...

Offered up the louvred windows this evening.. They need cleaning and polishing and the roof lining fitting before I screw them in properly! I just wanted to have a look-see!

Hmmmmn... The more I look at my bus with the louvred window in, the less I seem to like the idea... I think I'm gonna fit a solid window for now and keep the louvred in case I change my mind...

Your thoughts...

Why not look out for a slider?

I'm not keen on the look of them, but they are handy when sleeping in the bus in the summer.
You'd have to make sure you have a mozzie-net behind it though.

I like the louvred windows Smile

They are a must for ventilation when camping/sleeping over night with family etc... You'll need the mesh screens though. Another good point is that you can have them open in the rain without soaking the inside of the bus Wink

They are also more secure then the 1/2 sliding windows.

Either way. Hurry up matey as summer will be here before you know it! sunny

I'm gonna fit solids, but keep the louvred in the garage in case I think it's a mistake.. Realistically, my two kids won't be old enough for camping for a while yet..

The solids will keep the warmth in better, less risk of leaking etc etc...

PS.. No chance of bus being on the road for general use by this summer! Summer 2014 is the target for full on use, I might get a few day trips in later this year...

And fitted the chrome trim around the grill... (got fed up of knocking my head on it where it was hanging in the garage!! LOL!)
