98. Bone arm sticker

(2020.01.13 / worked in 2020.01.12)

I made a bone arm sticker. I got this idea from the door of the trailer driven by Furiosa. (by Mad Max:Fury Road) I checked human skeleton seriously and made the data.

96. Brake servo install

(2020.01.06 / worked in 2019.09.21)

The Japanese model does not have a brake servo. So I got the parts for R.H.D BUS from 'Vintage Autohaus' in France. And I asked 'SILVER LEST' to install it. I’m very happy with the effect.(^o^)/ Thank you Mr. Christophe Pereira and Mr. Nonoshita. v(^o^)w

95. Spot cooler install 2

(2020.01.05 / worked in 2019.09.01)

To further enhance the cooling effect, I thought about putting the main unit in front of the BUS and putting only cold air into the room through the fresh air intake. But I gave it up. Because it was too big and too heavy !! The next idea is to install a suction duct to take in cool air from the cooled anterior chamber and then reduce the heat generated by the unit. As a result, the outside air temperature minus 2.6 ℃. Less effective than last time. (T_T) It is thought that the intake resistance increased due to the provision of the duct, and that the unit became hot and the cooling efficiency decreased. So, I have given up installing a spot cooler on the BUS. (ToT)

94. Spot cooler install

(2020.01.04 / worked in 2019.08.25)

First attempt. In the case where the spot cooler was installed on the floor, only the cool air outlet was cooled. The body and the exhaust duct are warm!! Next, setted it to the seat to minimize length the exhaust duct. Furthermore, thought that only the front room should be cooled, so I set a curtain (thick and transparent vinyl sheet), and put only the cold air outlet into the front room. After running for about 1 hour, the result was 4.2℃ less than the outside temperature. That's not bad, but it's still not practical given the recent summer heat in JAPAN.

93. DC-AC inverter and line auto selector

(2020.01.03 / worked in 2019.08.11)

I want to be able to use home appliances in my BUS, so I installed a DC-AC inverter and automatic selector that switches between external and internal wiring.

(2019.12.19 / worked in 2019.07.06)

Each part of the removable folding table was retightened and lubricated. Five years have passed since it was made, but it works well.
