Quick Update Video

From earlier this week, Ned and I went to go visit Joe at Cheney Tech. We’re almost ready to start construction, and Joe walked us through how it will look once it’s done. Thanks to Ned for bringing a real camera to take some decent video.
If the above video is taking too long to load, try the version on YouTube.

Tank – Exploded Assembly, originally uploaded by somjuan.

No video, because there isn’t much tangible to show yet, and I figured it would just be a little weird showing Joe and I walking around real excited-like. Here is a page of the plans for the tank, which is being welded together specially for this project. It’s a nice looking rig, and I should be able to post completed pictures soon.

The Plan

I met with Joe today, and we went over the grand master plan for the bus conversion. The veggie tank, heat exchanger, and general configuration are all set. It is fairly simple, and each little step is easy to explain (I’ll show you everything once it is done). The trick is getting all the simple things working together.

The bus needs a little other work too. The brake lines need some work, and I’m certain that more will come to light after they make a real inspection. But all of that is still a ways in the future. The good news is that we now have a plan to follow, and I’ll be sure to keep this site updated with the progress.

In the shop
I dropped by Cheney today and found that Anne has been successfully moved inside. Soon the steel to build the tank will arrive, be welded into a wonderful large tank, and mounted in the bus. I’ll be keeping this blog updated with progress.
