Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

While visiting the Escape shop last weekend, I made good on a promise to do some custom modifications on the Hokie Escape.

I started with borrowing a reciprocating saw from Reace to cut a nice big skylight in. This should allow for lots more natural light inside. We still have to figure out how to fit a skylight in the hole I made, but I'm sure a solution can be found.

Other mods were done too, but we will not be showing any of those photographs, we want it to be a BIG surprise.

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

It seemed like a good shower arrangement when I saw it. Not sure that it would work on my 13', though.

I'll remember that face, and the Hokie Bird (Virginia Tech mascot) will hunt you down : - )

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

Hi: Jim... I wouldn't be afraid of Big Ol' Birdie... but if you get a sudden bout of severe pain all over your back...don't be surprised!!! Nissan owners can be very sticky about their vehicles

Well, I at least hope he has those big fat tires that produce a low PSI on the surface they go over.

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

Reace was quite innocent.....well, other then the snickering.

Not too worried about a remote controlled Nissan.
