A guy out west took an MCI (I think) that was not much better, stretched and skinned it. He made his own slides and everything. Its skinned in polished stainless. I think it looks menacing.

He did electric cooling, but it didn't work out so good (yet). He said in his latest video he will get it right. He did the Continental Divide last year and almost cooked it. He is very nice and has answered every message I put to him on YT so far.

I was curious so I found his mountain driving video. I couldn't watch all of it, but he showed the cooling setup. Zero engineering took place here. It's like the internet grew hands and built it.

He is no engineer and admits it often. Blue collar for sure. If you get a chance, look at his latest video. The rad is sitting there out in the open with no rubber or anything around it. He admitted he threw it together. First thing he said was the hot air was getting pulled right back in. I am sure he will get it. This guy is something. This coach he is building is not a normal conversion. He must have deep pockets and lots of time. Sheer determination.

I watched a few moments of the cooling troubleshooting video out of curiosity. Says he was running all 4 large 12V fans off of a 24V to 12V converter mounted upfront and with 10 gauge wire between and "never really thought about it".

Yikes. Can only imagine the other similar decisions he made along the way.
Trial and error even evolution can result in brilliant solutions. I hope he gets lucky!
I also give great credit, too, for trying.

"The bus was built in Belgium so none to very little rust."

I'm confused. What does being built in Belgium have to do with very little rust?

Rust may be illegal in Belgium?

The problem with rust on an Eagle (the way i understand it) is the rivet holes in the square tube allows water to get inside the tube and the tube rusts out from the inside.
