NEW GAUGES

Added some gauges to my dash. Could have used the VOLT Gauge when my alternator was acting up, and always nice to know the temp and time. Got all three from RANEY Truck Parts https://www.raneystruckparts.com/

Finishing the TV Mount Project

Never quite finished this previous project to my liking, and had the time to finish it up this past July 4th weekend. First picture shows the wood I had put up temporarily to mount the TV Arm Bracket. 2nd and 3rd pics show the new wood and finish.

Wow it's been 5 yrs since I posted here we still have our Eagle and still enjoying it. This past year we converted a barn into a house and during the construction we lived in the bus for 8 months. I will post again we have more projects coming soon.

Manny, I am so glad that you have returned to posting. I have thought about you guys often and wondered how you were doing. I look forward to some updates.

For the new folks, it is well worth your time to go back to start of this build thread and follow the wonderful work that Manny and Darlene have done on this beautiful Eagle.

Manny, a few years back I created a forum called: Our "Other" Projects. I hope you will start a thread about the barn conversion.
