My dad was a truck driver. That KW symbol is legend!! I spent much of my childhood around Kw's, Pete's, Freightliner's, etc. One of the reasons I want to incorporate a bit of that "class" into my build. still trying to score a full set of pre 94" Pete gauges with chrome bezels, black faces similar to the classic SW stuff. I really hate the International cluster in my 95. Reeks of cheap. The rest of the bus is well built though. Guess the bean counters won out on that part. Your use of liquid nails has got me thinking of doing some tests of planks glued directly to the metal bow's n mine. Thanks and keep up the posts. Hope you find your ultimate short bus!!

If you a shopping serious adhesive products...be sure to check out Sika. They have glues that are rated stronger than welding on sheet metal!

So was my Dad. And I'm also going to that "semi" feel as well. I've been looking at some different touches too.
IDK if I'd do this but it looks really badass-


I may add four of these though-

My first big bus was a 53 kenworth 40ft monster
Had a HUGE straight 6 gas/propane power plant and a manual tranny
Top speed of 36 miles a hour. ... Did it once going down hill with a tail wind. Lol
The 30 feet of shift linkage was a nightmare, always jamed up when I moved
I have pictures around somewhere, it was a mobile home more then a bus
I lived in it for three years before life shifted gears and I gave it to my aunt

Seeing the pics in this thread brought back some memories
