Chris, thanks so much for hosting. I think we all had a great time, and I'm ready for the next one. So much participation was a great site and with one of Fish's old bus's there it really felt like old times. Chris was so well supplied with tools and what not, I never even unloaded the welder from my truck. Very successful day. Next time maybe I'll even work on my bus a little.

Rob got his bumper holes all welded up from the 4 tip exhaust, so he can drill new small ones for his Pea shooter exhaust.
Sergio and I got the wiring ironed out for his ignition and some of the lighting problems.
Rob and I got his tent poles welded back together, but I give no guarantee as to how long that will hold together.
and I helped Randy give Chris' BOOTIE end a lift... All in all, a great day with buses literally parked all over the place.

Oh and Pasquel's OG Mango was BEAUTIFUL.

Believe me, you guys made it happen, it just shows we love working on our buses! It was so cool. Being so busy that day, I can't believe so many small projects were being performed on your buses..

I didn't expect work to be performed on slayer, holy crap, my electrical is awesome,
and I am in the nose bleed section!! :lol: You know, stock height!

. :grin:

Six Volt .... I think that bus came from the Lake Erie area :lol: !! If I'm not mistaken I think Bill paid $25 bucks for that bus.


In Cleveland, that's probably a $4-5,000 bus. In any event, we still love lower nose repairs in San Diego! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Damn I didn't get a shot of the finished product. Anyway, Bill is happy to have his nose lookin good on Kermit!!

Bill did the welding, Dan was the brains/worker bee, and I was the helper!

And now a pic of Dan's current undertaking on his so22 or is it an so23, not sure!!

The front end, or lack there of!! I think he should start a thread on this.

I used the newly welded up tent poles on a camping trip this weekend and they held up just fine. I should have put a little more effort into lining up the corner parts before we welded. They function, but the legs are at a bit of an awkward angle.
