Finally it begins. Spent the day ripping into the ambulance. Felt like a lot of progress while doing it. Filled up a whole coffee can full of screws and hardware. I love the way they do the electrical in these things, so professional. I should be able to tag into the circuit board for my own needs. Bonus find of the day is the fact that the building materials they used is composite. I thought it was all mdf. I'm taking everything apart carefully to reuse behind the scenes.
Just drove north through Baja. This was one of many great stops. The next shot shows what you have to do after pushing the 2wd sprinter too far, again. We had to air down and dig to get out of the sand. Then we had to air back up the old fashioned way.
A few more pictures of the upcoming project. I'll get started on it in a couple days. The last picture is what I'm shooting for. Looking for that basic layout. I don't kid myself that mine will be that nice though.
My buddies idea for loading/unloading a spare tire onto the roof rack. Keep in mind it will weigh about 140 pounds and is 41 inches in diameter. The other option is a mini crane that folds down. Comments, other ideas? Arriving in AZ mid March to get started.
