My lovely assistant showing me where to make the next cut.
I have learned a few thingsduring the destruction phase of this project.
I've never used a 4" grinder for cutting,,I'm used to using air die grinders for that but my cheesy home air compressor can't keep up with high volume air tools.
So for cuts that the Sawzall won't work for I spend alot of time waiting for the friggin compressor.
Oh yeah,,,,,Sawzall blades and weld don't mix well.
So anyway,,, the other day I realized that they make cut off wheels for 4" grinders,,,,So no more waiting for the damn compressor and the thing cuts better then my air die grinder at work where we have a huge compressor that has a 160 psi working pressure. Awesome!
The barn is a little dark for pics so every now and then I'll back er out and take some pictures,,clean up the floor and back in she goes.
Which is what will probably what will happen tomorrow.
Billy Goat ride huh?
I like it ,,,and it's accurate too.
Will they come for a Tshirt.
Guess the final paint job will have to be duct tape silver.
Cleo says that's enough for today.

If it doesn't rain.
Same here. I woulda loved to have a cool van like that. Kinda bummed me out to see it getting all torn up.
I'm tellin you guys,,,,,wait till you see this thing when I'm done.
In for a penny, in for a pound. Another bus owner here, only we didn't use the sawzall on ours yet. It's been faithfully hauling bikes all spring/summer across the country and back.
we have been talking about doing this very thing at work for the last several months. It's a cheap way to get a very nice tow rig.
That's what I'm talkin about!
Love this project, been working on a van style(picture two Ford van bodies, from the rear doors back welded together) cargo trailer of my own I bought a couple years ago, making a camper I can tow with my 88 Full size Bronco.
Dream on building a large school bus with a drop rear wall, just can't afford it yet.
Looking forward to seeing this to completion, I think I understand where you're going, and it should be really cool, good luck.
Too late. I already have the image in my head of some guy in the campsite next to me working on his bus.
That things going to turn out cool. Just for the fuck of it I looked on craigslist for busses and this turns up in Reno. 4x4 bus, 3100 OBO
Would make a cool toyhauler, backroads rig.
