Project Bus

This is not business related, but I thought many of our viewers would find my latest restoration project interesting. After talking with a few buddies,  I  happened across a silent auction that found me winning the ability to purchase this 1986 Crown school bus from a local district as the highest bidder. So deciding on converting this bus into an RV Motorhome was my next project that has taken many hours of dedication. This has gone on a couple years now to get to the usability stage, I anticipate a few more years to actually finish on some of the upper end equipment additions like solar panels with a battery inverter system, but I hope to have it workable enough to take on the road this summer (2014). Hope you enjoy the photos.

Thought I would put a little artwork on the front before I painted the bus.

This should make it interesting.

Here are the new colors for the bus. Something more engaging than yellow and black.
