Hank you. I'm hoping to not do a raise. I'm 6'3" and I have about 2 inches above my head. Depends on how well I can insulate the floor using about an inch. It's a blank canvas right now.

Nice Bus!!

8.3, MD3060 and relatively low miles. I think you scored!

I look forward to seeing your build. Keep us posted.

Yeah, I was going to mention that your bus has way to many seats in it.

Pile the seats by the curb with a free sign on them or haul them off for scrap yourself?

Seats are out!

Seats came out nice, took about 3 hrs. The rubber floor on the other hand is not as easy. Got a start on it. Going to go rent a floor stripper and see how that does. All in all a great first day of work.
