I keep coming to the realization that this whole party bus thing is a constant work in progress. Maybe one day I will be finished with all the work on it, but for now, I feel like every time I step foot in the bus, I notice something else that I need to add or make an adjustment to.
This particular time that I worked on the bus, I added the following items:
- Exhaust fan in the roof of the bus
- New top to the cooler and trash can
- Additional interior handrail across roof
The exhaust fan is placed towards the front that actually sucks out the hot air in the bus and allows for more air flow. Over the past few months, even with the A/C on, it still tends to get a little warm in the bus throughout the evening. The addition of this fan will not only suck out the hot air, but can also be set up to blow in cooler air to the bus, which will continue to help keep the bus cooler.
The new top to the cooler and trash can was added because I had heard from a few people that the top might not the be the safest thing on board. The lids were a little heavy and when people would open and close them, they would slam shut and could've possibly hurt my passengers fingers if they were caught in there. Also, the sides weren't the smoothest.
So we wound up taking off the metal top and replacing it with a wooden one and wooden doors. We were even able to wrap the top in the same black and neon green fabric that is used on the seats so it matches the color scheme inside the bus.
The additional hand rail is actually something that was supposed to happen back when I first got the handrails installed back in the summer. But for some reason, we couldnt find the right style of handrails.
We also tightened up a few things around the bus like the car charger outlet by the radio console (it had popped out when I was unplugging something) and the connections to the rear view camera as I have noticed that it had been cutting in and out lately.
