Nice tanks. Those would go well in a basement. I think it would be pretty cool to use one of those as a fuel tank again, but then I like boondocking.

Your tanks should work well. Think long and hard before you put the black tank in your basement. A leak or spill would be a mess,
I put the black tank between the basement and the left rear wheel.
Just a thought.
Keep up the good work.

I'm not one to repurpose every little thing, but I do like saving myself some money where I can. So, what do you do when you've got bus parts you don't need for your build? Build a dog house! Or, in my case, a dog mansion. The roof line is 8' 6" from end to end, 3' 8" wide. The whole thing is made of scrap lumber, sheet metal roofing I had laying around and the old interior walls from Delores.

I'm sure they would. But, living on a farm, they tend to find some pretty gross stuff to roll in DAILY. Our Husky/German Sheppard is the master of nasty smells. She'll appreciate the dog house because she doesn't get to sleep inside when she smells like death. Lol

Yeah, I know how dogs smell when they've been out on the loose. Dead deer or at least gut piles aren't that easy to keep dogs away from. People dump their hunting refuse on our dead end road, not to mention unwanted cats and dogs appearing overnight. Here we call them cougar snacks because the majority don't last long.

Thanks, I looked for a very long time. Most of the buses I saw were overpriced, or not worth the effort. I was at the guys house viewing this one, with cash in hand, 45 minutes after finding it on Craigslist.
