Latest post of the previous page:

So while I wait for parts (new pic 34 carb, fuel pump and proper blue brake hose) I've spent a few days redecorating. I obtained a bag of 500 sheets of urethane foam. Dead stock inventory from an expired packaging project at our warehouse, I'm told. I am confident it will makes for great sound control. Used 3M Spray 77 and I applied 3 layers of the 1/2" pads. Underneath I applied partial pieces of a dynamat like product. Got the driver's side wall and rear panel done and sliding door and passenger rear panel done too. Next going to attack the floor. Of course my wife is in on the project too.

Hey Tom- I hope you sent that carb out to Tim@Volkzbitz for rebuilding/refurbishment. The new carbs on the market today have more slop out of the box than the old German carbs have after decades of use.

If you have the old one still, you may find yourself cleaning it and installing it later down the line ;)

That curtain fabric is amazing!

Any plans for the interior electrical inlet? Mine has been flopping around my cargo area for almost a decade now. I’ve used it twice... and the first time I pulled away from my camp spot still plugged in!

I'm pretty sure that was going to be the case. Was going to clean it up and try but will still send to a "pro" to refurb and tune. Should have replacement and fuel pump tomorrow. Curtains...that's Laura's department since it's "her bus". Will plumb the outlet but not a huge priority. We are seldom at such civilized camp locations that offer power. We rarely use it on the other one, especially since we now have the aux battery with the Blue Sea relay system.
