1957 Bubble resto

Hi, Brand new to the forum. Just purchased my bubble three days ago and very excited to get the project going. I am surprised as to how few systems are installed. No greywater tank, no blackwater tank, no battery system,no water pump, no heater. The systems that are there are the water tank, propane stove, propane light, sinks, toilet, and a couple 12v lights. So a blank slate I am really looking forward to. The Bubble did come with the optional bunk which is great.
Just wanted to introduce myself before I started asking questions. Thanks in advance for all the knowledge on this board. Also...where do I upload my avatar?


Thanks, Jack

Is this a coincidence? Wonder if Wisco has seen this?

Yes, this is the Bubble Wisco drove 1/3rd of the way across the US to buy, and the seller sold it anyway, despite the $1000 cash deposit paid.

However, the current owner was not told by the seller of this, and made the purchase in good faith. They have become aware of the situation and posted a formal apology to Wisco in his thread where he might see it.

Can't blame this buyer for the bad ethics of a seller. IMVVHO.

Great way to join a forum huh? Hard to believe that happened and to find out about it on this forum. Once again WISCO, I'm sorry this happened and I wish you the best.
