Fresh conversion pics

I just set up an album to show off my bus. The album is "Skoolie Pride". Everything is done except the bedroom and paint, but there isn't any pics of that in there. Let me know what you guys think.

Oh, it's an 86 International/Bluebird w/134,000 miles on a 9.0L. Also has the five speed.

Nice work. It looks durable and rich. Have you done many trips in it yet?

Did you use the old bus seat covers to make your couch cushions? Looks very nice!

It should be very durable. Everything is framed in 2X2's. Everything was screwed together (not nailed) and also glued with liquid nails just to be sure. First trip will be around the 1st of July. Most people think I reused the vinyl from the bus seats, but I didn't. I used to own an upholstery shop and it was some surplus left over from a restraunt booth job.

Excellent job! The woodwork is very nice. I approached the bus window trim problem in a similar way, and it's nice to see how someone else has done it. Great job on the cushions, too!

Thanks, that window trim was tricky.
