#846 Canadian Coach (42 Photos, 9 Comments : Last updated 2019-09-18) J-Model, mostly stock. Calls Vancouver Island home. 19.5" custom steel wheels with SS wheel covers (thanks again Dale!). Planning an HT-413' conversion with an overdrive.
Going to give this another try as my first attempt didn't go so well on the 'Diner-conversion' thread (Will update/edit that soon).
Started my Cummins swap by pulling off the bumper; only took better part of an hour. That sucker is HEAVY! Better part of a 100 lbs I bet. Will be looking to knock substantial weight off that baby while still retaining a 5000 lb towing standard.
This will take a while as it will unfold as time and resources permit, so please be patient.
More pics and hopefully some videos (FMC-TV) to follow.

FMC LED Tail Light Swap #846 (14 Photos, 1 Comment : Last updated 2022-05-22) This is a continuation of the work started by my Friend, Dale Maggio, about 10 yrs ago just before I bought #509 from him down in Santa Cruz.
In a box of parts he included with the coach I found some pedestal style LED truck lights. He told me he was in the midst of converting the tail lights to LED but had no time to complete it. After checking out the parts - and having been less than happy with replacing a continuous stream of rear tail light bulbs - I decided to take a serious look at what Dale had in mind. Turns out the guy is freakin' - brilliant!
This is the route I went to get this done.
