Default Need some extra hands. Humpty dumpty

Hey group, I am trying to get my bus 78 (31' FC Side bath) up to snuff for travel before June. I am located in Hinseville, GA. Time is getting short and I need help especially on the Wanderlodge specific stuff to make sure the bus is safe and trustworthy enough for my family (Oliver 3.5, Lyanna 2.1). I have completely stripped the bus and am now putting it back together. I need to do checks on systems and also learn what to check. I think its a good idea to change out the belts for new set and would like help with that. Incentives will be bus parts from the interior that are not reused with few exceptions I took everything out inside that wasn't mechanical. I am going to reuse the upper cabinet hardware and brackets, but am not putting them all back in so some panels will probably be available also. I can't move or store the stuff I took out anyways so I want it to go to some people who will find uses for it. I am trying to set up work days on the weekends. I will also have room to sleep 3-4 people in my house where the bus is if they want to stay more than one day to help. I am generating a list on the WL specifics that really need knowledge, but if you are a decent framer/ carpenter or just good at holding things up any extra hands over the next 4 weekends starting May 3rd. I will be working in the bus friday- sunday as much as I can. If you may be able to help even for a day please email me at JeremyJSimon@gmail.com.

you need to get a belt cricket to make sure the belts are adjusted properly.
