Big Red Bird

We are now the proud owners of a 12 row Blue Bird that was painted red and white. It was a church bus and we will be removing the lettering and painting the areas that currently have the church info. Its an '88 International dt360 and automatic.
Lots of seats at this time if anyone wants them. My son and friends want one for a hunting seat but the rest have to go.
A few of the lights were out when we got it but the long drive home bounced it around enough to fix the loose connections. If I have any funds left after the conversion, I may switch the rear lights to LED.
It has good hard rubber flooring; no need to strip and resurface. We plan to cover it with carpet or vinyl.
No other decisions are final yet except the shower will likely be a 36"x48" one-piece fiberglass unit if it will fit thru the back door.

Congrats on the new acquisition. Enjoy the project!
I just love Internationals, I've heard great things about the DT360. They are supposed to be very dependable.
