Wiring and Cabinets

 

 

The Blue Sea charging relay and battery combiner switch are located in the engine compartment near the stock battery.  More of the old aluminum road sign was pressed into service as another mounting plate.

This looks very familiar.

Now we know where all those missing Bolenas road signs go to :)

 

Excellent build, great workshop.

Thanks!

 

CalTrans actually stopped erecting "Bolinas" signs after the election mentioned in the article you link.  For about 25 years now there hasn't been a sign on Highway 1 marking the turnoff to Bolinas.  Those stolen road signs are some people's prize posessions: I'm afraid none of them would ever give me one to cut up for camper parts!

 

With the advent of the GPS, however, everyone knows where Bolinas is anyway.

Somehow I missed this build, until now.  

This is exactly what I've been fantasizing about:  aluminum flatbed with ATC shell, with custom interior.  

I'm bookmarking and will go back and read your thread in great detail.

BD,

 

I saw you going south on HWY 1 in Pacifica while I was on my way to work this morning. Where are you headed?

Hi super doody! My apologies for taking so long to respond.

 

I was headed to Santa Cruz to visit an old friend who is a bicycle framebuilder.  We have a couple of projects we're working on together.

Very nice work.

Do you have a link for the hinges you used on the bench lids? That is a great idea. I hate having to hold those up when attaching the turnbuckles

Thanks!

 

Here's the link for the hinges (Note they come in a left and a right.)

I used the "lightweight" ones and they work fine, but if your lid is any larger than mine I think the heavier ones would be better.
