Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Yeah but get rid of the nasty ass bench seat. God only knows what it has seen. It looks like they had some equipment sitting on it in the one light spot for years. Haha, that pic was to show the test cleaning spot I made. The bench is much nicer now. I think it will usable for now until I design so...

Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Things are moving slowly here at Casa Urban. Finally have my updated seat put in, still have to do the passenger seat. The old Road Warrior grill guard from my old van has been removed and ill start some rehab work on it soon. I want to clean up some of my welds, add some new structural steel, then ...

Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Just installed the new HO alternator, seems to charge fine now. Decided to swap the worn-out front seats with a more comfortable pair and am also going thru the mass of relays, grounds, isolators, switches and heavy electrical cabling that was concealed in the seat base. This ambulance had a dual ba...

Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Took my wonky old 165 amp Ambo alternator in for a test, and it was essentially more useful as a doorstop. A rebuild would start with 60 bucks labor just to crack the case on it, with no idea what it might eventually cost AND no warranty given. I hopped onto Amazon and bought a brand new 250 amp alt...

Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Last night I was reminded that the lights on the sides of most ambulances are nearly as bright as the sun. I don't know how much power they draw but if you plan on using them you might check that out. I can tell you that won't need any off road light add ons. You could spend thousands and still not...

Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Major, I'm hoping that the old grill will fit on the new Doomy and look okay. If not I can always work on creating another one that is more appropriate. The old running boards and roof rack will come off the old Doomy and very possibly sold on Craigslist. I could widen the roof rack to fit the new r...

Re: ...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

Thanks for the replies guys. If I could keep the 4x4 project I would, but a promise is a promise and I won't lie to my wife. I was hoping to combine the 4x4 van with the Ambo but my mechanic is less than impressed with the conversion work done previously. Besides which the running gear under the 4x4...

...And the Doomrunner BOV saga turns to a new chapter

First I started with a 1989 2wd GMC one-ton van with a jillion miles on it. I added a big homebuilt cowkiller grill and super heavy-duty running boards. Then a 1986 Ford E350 4x4 van with a 7.3L IDI entered the picture. This was a major project (non-running) that hadn't been on the road since 1993. ...

Re: The Dead at Destitute Mountain

TB has given us a great gift. Starting in May 2013, he has made over 100 days with story entries. The greatest intensity was at the start, with 17 days of stories in the first month. June had seventeen story days, July eight. The rest of 2013 averaged just under 3 story days per month. 2014 was ble...

Re: Homestead land in the WA Okanogan

So here is the current Sketchup of my house design https://s25.postimg.org/epk1ilt3j/floorplan_with_2nd_central_hex_1.jpg Sketchup has really been helping to get a clear idea of scale and how to arrange things. It has saved me plenty of times on figuring out better ways to do this design. As you ca...

Re: The DoomRunner is dead, all hail the DoomRunner XL!

"If true" are the most important words here. It all LOOKED very clean, not beat to death or worn out, but until we can get him fired up for the first time there is no guarantee I haven't just bought a $4500 planter box. So true! The Suburban I bought this summer turned out to have much more wrong w...

I thought the dual fuel tanks had an 80 gallon capacity, turns out that it's ONLY 60 gallons of diesel.

Think I might send it back to the seller now....

Thanks so much, I'll surely keep you all updated.

Re: The DoomRunner is dead, all hail the DoomRunner 2.0!

I drooled over that EXACT van for quite some time. Glad it got a good home, excited to see what you build out of it! How cool is that. Two ZS'ers lusting after the same ride! :D It's gonna be a slow build 'cause of Mr. SubArachnoid Hemorrhage visiting me, but I'll get him done eventually. -urban
