Eric, are we going to see your bus in South Carolina in March? I would love to bend your ear on your wood work. I need to learn the round wood thing. Nice work.

We had lots of snow and ice this weekend. Decided to tackle the steps, and upholstery around the front. Never done any before, so I'm sure I wasted some material. Keep me busy and warm anyway. I am still undecided about the drivers seat LOL!!

Looking good Eric!

I like the whole idea, stairs and dash look like it was very well thought out! I'm impressed!

That is one nice job Eric, what material did you use for the floor up front? Is that marble? Cheryl just flipped when we saw it, very professional looking job. I certainly would like to know how to curve the cabinet material too,that is the look I have been after,I will give you a call today if possible for some pricing regarding an awning. Van

Awesome, great job. I knew I should have come up & gotten in your way. ;) By the way is the driver seat an airride by chance? Can I get that in a different color? :roll: Looking good Eric!

Thanks guys for all the comments!!! It feels good to know people appreciate the effort we put into these clunkers. Sometimes when you tell someone you have been on the thing for 8 or 8 years they give you that are u nuts look. We know we are, but that 's part of what keeps us at it. The steps are made from absolute black granite. The actual step is 3/4" thick, but is laminated in the front to make it look thicker. The same for the piece at the top. it comes down to cover the edge of the vinyl. I did not tackle the dash. It is an R&M which I modified. Made it taller and shorter in length. I have it at the shop to be covered. It will need several seams. I didn't think I could do it without sewing a few fingers together!! My plan is to have them stitch the Eagle logo in the door fabric before I cover it.
