Thx.

I haven't been able to work on it in a year due to where it was parked. I just moved it for the second time. Now I can work on it, but winter is here. I'm looking forward to getting back into it come spring. Rumor has it that I will be moving it again a hour to the west.

It does not move under it's own power at this time.

Nat

RV's often have huge rear windows. Any junk yards near you?

im building it in Lancaster,Ca so idk i have to check. are there in other pictures of peoples projects who used large windows. I wanted to use a large window instead of the two reg bus windows. So pull out two and replace it with one bigger one and do that all around the bus.
also i hate the idea of having to lean over to see outside, what are the dangerous, if any, of raising the window up by a foot towards the roof.
also pictures r worth a thousand words right? so if u got any please share, Thx

Most bus builds I see on this site lift the roof to prevent having to sit down to see out the window.

Are the windows for the bus you mentioned there, which you're driving from Wisconsin to LA? If you're going by way of Salt Lake City and want to pick up a few extra-big factory windows on the way through, let me know. My bus is a Blue Bird, but not a school bus, and it has (had) windows that stretch across twice the width of the school bus windows. They have single pane glass tinted kind of a grey-bronze color and slide horizontally to open about 6 inches at each end. You can see them on my bus on the first page of my build thread.
