Mine is a 60, some longer ones here have a 80 gallon.

I have seen trip buses with two 80 gallons.

the ceiling panels are screwed on, hooked up the radio to another battery and i bought a battery tender from ebay for the coach batteries. looks like the ac lines are flexable so i can just set on floor till i install a ceiling.

I love the demo part.

I just pulled the seats out of a similar bus yesterday. Took me 2 hours with a 9/16 wrench, and brute force. Only had to cut 3 bolts with the angle grinder, the rest snapped.

Looking good.
