We are converting a 1992 Toyota Coasters to a motorhome.

In striping out all the bus gear, we are finding large amount of dust.

Does anyone have any experience with stopping this occuring.

Thanks

I have a 75 Coaster I know it inside out. Probably a bit different from yours LoL, but 92's not that old. What was it used for (other than obvious) before you got it? Exactly where is the dust?
Do you mean RUST with an R, or dust with an D?

I only ask cause it's easy to typo them seeing as they're next to one and other.

How many previous owners? What State are you in? What color is the dust?

I can put you onto GOOD people in Melbourne.

Col.
The secret to dust entry to any vehicle is to have a slight positive air pressure in the vehicle. the simplest way to do this is to place a pop up vent in the roof, these can be obtianed from wrecked mazda trucks or purchased from some caravan supplies. to find the holes you can use smoke and a blower, to do this place some pine needles in a steel drum and light them, place a loose fitting lid on the drum so the needles smolder. place the drum inside the vehicle[on a brick] and then turn on the heater fan, the smoke will come out of the holes.

That's a pretty god idea Eric. What's the pop up vent do? Would'nt it release air pressure though?

The vent can be installed with the opening at the front or back depending on what you want to acheave. Eric.

Col,

Can't find the link, but I read about a van where the guy had installed a high volume low voltage inline fan inside a tube with an air filter on the outside to create the positive air pressure Eric is taking about.

Fan needs to move more air into the van than there are holes to let it out.

Your remarks are not in my opinion, suitable for the occasion.

Firstly I do thank now all those who have offered advice, it has been most helpfull.

However things are never quite what they appear, and a rush to judge my character, without knowing any facts, does you no credit.

I have been ill, very ill, and my illness is associated with my service to this country, and it is people like me, who have served on active service, allow people like you to have the freedom that you enjoy, to do all the things that are important to you and yours.

Regards

Col Tigwell
