Sunrise over another water sealed coach
Recently purchased, the first order of business is to keep the water out. Now it can sit outside while other work can be done. The last phase of revealing the body will be pressurizing the interior then wash it hard (the coach needs that desperately anyway) but doing this we will look for leaks with bubbles escaping where there are openings……works pretty good but not 100%. We do all we can.
BTW, I dropped that is because this page is really here for customers to watch progress here so our mission has been accomplished.
Accomplishing missions, last weekend while I was sweating with JayGee ….Phillip was waste deep in his Ford pickup rat rod project……literallybit it paid off, by the end of the day that 79 Ford farm truck was sporting a rebuilt 5.0with just a littlet more to go……..but he’s just lovin iti hope!
On to real work, this is an “Explorer II” coach restored by Explorer Vans in the 90 ‘s.Eexplorer produced @ 40 restorations before they figured out they were looking their butt! A really nice, well kept coach @ 2 years ago we fitted this 26′ coach with one of the 2 6.5 GM/ AM General Hum V turbo dieselsNow with several thousand miles to California and back we have a chance to see how things are going. We’re also adding a new aluminum fuel tank. The 2 steel tanks caused several issues on the road. Its a little more involved in replacing fuel filters on a diesel! He actually had to replace the injectors and pump from Crap from the tanks!
Also installing a dedicated bed with understorage he found he didn’t need the seating in the back.
The guys spent part if the day cleaning up for a special guest we had drop by. Take a look at our palatial surrounding in the big house...
The guy is one looking to help us do something with our historic outer body molds that made the GMC sheet mold compound plastic bodies. And like everyone else who comes to see 240,000 pounds of chrome mold a…..it was a WOW moment for him too!i mean what do you say when you see a half of a chrome plated mold that weighs 35,000so far “WOW” has been the first overall remark. Things are moving on this front, thanks to all of you who are helping which also includes Frank U. ……You and others helped us pay the storage when it was a tough nut…….and scanning is costing a pile so if you would like to help call the office, sign up…get one of our tool box pocket work shirts and the warm feeling that you are helping. As more happens we will be doing more for this program… Stay tuned for more on this.
See ya tomorrow………..
