i found this RV this way and like to work on things to kill time

LOL this time killer is still on going

so as lot of you know i installed a GM 350 /TH400 to just get the RV to move around and get it home ??? yes it was a DP !! now it is a gas like the UFO setup this was like this for 2 years and did ok in FL and for any one asking it did drive like a 1 ton truck and i could do 65 MPR but it was just a temp setup

after parking it at a friends house i now have pulled the 350 out and started to install the newer 8.1l allison 5 speed setup

as you can see i am now in the fun part of wiring and soon power up testing

some of you guys know how it is with month to month income things are slow but i am getting there






pulled the old roof off here





i am 6.2 high so walking around in a RV that as only made for 6.2 high inside did not work so good for me so i moved the roof up 16in

That's awesome, did you do it within the budget you thought it would initially cost? I've built cars from the ground up but that project looks like a whole lot of work.

That's an incredible undertaking. What's your estimate in terms of time and money on this project?
