Smile Discovering the joy

Today I believe I have my Beautiful FC35sb to air up and maintain height for the first time In probably years!
she can now air up on idle and hold air for most of the day if not of 24hours.

The small victories!

She's still far from driving down the road, only step on is complete she airs up and holds, but the parking chambers will not release I assume they will need replacing and the brake chamber will probably the same attention.

I also found a hole that's been sealed by a screw in the radiator lol I believe she can be rebuilt. i


She's moving along and I'm happy for progress

Today, I reinstalled front bumper, checked and tightened number of things under the bus, removed the remaining parts from the steering springs (I now have dampner), got the driving lights working, air'd up the tires, installed new LEDs above the sink, filled water tanks (first time now the solenoid is working) - getting close to road trip.

Thanks Bill.. Not the first trip technically - Did same rallye last year which is where my engine fan fell off due to shaft failure. Fortunately, it was a very chilly weekend and I was able to drive without issue. That led to the Horton path. After this trip, we (the family) also have plans to spend Easter weekend at Davis Mtn State park.. This will be the first trip as a family.

Thanks for following.. I try to post what I can for the next guy - and help of course.. but there has been so much more - like new microwave, water system overhaul including new hot water heater etc..

This is by far the best forum of all my hobbies..

Next up is an expensive investment in tires.

Default The Bird has a name

So today, I formally committed to naming the bus in preparation for the 2023 Hill Country Rallye - My trip coming up. Inspired by the amount of time I spend on the bus.. the Porsche hobby I have and the recent TOPGUN movie.

WINGMAN

Warning - I may have gotten a little out of control..
may warrant some zooming in to see the smaller ones.


I also finished up the drawers and phone holder with carpet.

Finally tore out the ceiling panels in the bathroom to track down the leak - sure enough, it's the skylight. Went up top, and the skylight itself seems OK (no cracks, and the screw holes are all solid). Pealed off the silver tape, which came up very easily. Looks like I don't need to replace that one, just remove, clean up the surface, and reinstall with the right stuff. I may go the rivnut route instead of the metal screws.

Lots of wet wood up in there. I'll see how it dries out before I decide to tear out the closet and shower to replace it. Hopefully it'll dry OK.

I might decide to remove the whole mess regardless - I've got ideas for the shower surround that I need to get some input on.

Put a mixing valve in the shower and hopefully will provide warm water, not hot or cold.
Figured out the Microphor toilet after talking with Anna Marie. Success for a rookie.
Now front tires. Scarce for sure.
Rarely post but why not.
