Some updates!
We installed a Recaro seat that we got from a tour bus, piped in an air line right in front of the air line that was previously running to the stop sign.

Started painting

Baby bus was the test for the paint color, we dig it!

Hello Struggle! Love the bus! I have been sold on doing one of theses shorties for a long time. I also live in Calif. but are concerned with the diesel regulations on a bus like this. Will you have to have the particulate filters installed which I was told could costs $15000 or more. Any info you have would be great! THX
