"Bella_B700" Conversion

This our "New to us" Bus, 1998 Ford B700. The conversion will be slow as I work offshore two weeks out of every month, and will only have 14 days per month to work on her. Will post pics as progress is made. Got her home, and The seats are all Un-attached, will be coming out tomorrow!

Hello,. I think i will be relocating to the Lafayette area this spring. What engine and tranny? I have been eyeing my fuel tank and the huge brackets that hold it up. I am thinking one would make a huge grey or black water tank.Then Come up with a plastic tank that will fit in the tank brackets for fresh water.. If you pull them your self i would save all the bolts washers and nuts.
