Steve


My hat off to you. You are doing an awesome job. I have to tell you that if I had to do that I am not sure I would ever finish the job. We have been working on our 89 Eagle Model 20 for 7 years now and I did not go into as much detail as you are doing. Keep up the good work and please udate your photos.

I can't imagine the work you have put into this thing, Steve. But then we all wish our Eagles looked this good!

Steve I am still amazed at your conversion. I have been watching it for some time on the other board. I have a lot of respect for someone who can under take a project like that and stay with it. What is your next step?

Thank You Wayne

Thanks for the good compliments there guys,
I just got back into town coming from the Nascar Cup race at the Atlanta Speedway. And I have to say it was an adventure. We sat in 75 degree sunny weather and got sunburnt bad, left the track and went to south carolina to visit with Gary and Linda Labombard and then through cherokee to go over the mountains through a freeking blizard....lol..... Just imagine sunburnt skin and 28 degree weather and walking up and down the strip at Gatlinburg......Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr...... One big plus is that we were in town when some one was speaking at the convention center and so there was at least 100 buses there in downtown Gatlinburg.

Gary and Linda, Deb and I sure did enjoy the hospitality of you guys there, and the bus project is awsum too. 8-) 8-)

Van, well yes I would do it all over again. Only problem is that I would have to be drinking at least a couple of 5ths of whiskey a day so I am not sure the results would come out the same..... :lol: :lol: :lol: But hey, If your funishing the adult beverages and dont mind the outcome Im game....... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wayne, next on the list is picking your brain about the levelers and getting them welded in. I think that the best thing to do as far as building the slideout frames is to have the bus up on the leveling points that will be supporting it, before I finish the last three slideouts. I don't think the frame will be under and stress but I ain't taking any chances.......

Dale I will be in touch with you soon about the your door project....

Duwane, the ole girl sure has tried my mind plenty of times.....lol... but I forge on and on. I have found that the best way to get out of doing the things I hate worst is to just race through them (doing them the right way that is) and then take my time doing the things I enjoy....... Going to be a long time before I can slow down though .... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi Steve,

Just checked out your site for updates and WOW! You have done amazing work on the entry door and steps. Too bad you had to take off some Rustbullet, bet that wasn't fun.

Can't wait for the next stage in your adventure!

Thanks Paul, I wish all of us bus nuts lived a lot closer so we could sit around the camp fire together more often..


Dale, A big thank you for moving that pic to here from the blog but, how in the world did you do it??? :cry: I have been trying to learn how to do that for a year now. Maybe you could write up a tutorial here for me when you get a moment..... :lol: Not in any hurry though.

Hey buddy... I will write up a tutorial. I thought I already had but that one was about hosting pictures. Look for a new sticky at the top of the Project Eagles in a few minutes.
