Re: Our Bus Conversion Project

You guys are doing a great job, it looks like it is coming together quite nicely!

Ditto your "Day 32" tip on looking for specials - I've come across quite a few myself that have literally saved me $100's of dollars.

Re: Our Bus Conversion Project

The tint looks good. I lucked out & mine came tinted although I have a few I want to do including the door & front... Are you in Florida (90+degrees & 90+ humidity kinda led me to believe this)? I know the windshield being tinted is illegal but is it that obvious when you look at it?? I wonder if the law will be alert to this...

Yes... Florida. Front windows can be tinted up to around 35% in this state at least.

No question about the heat... I don't own enough fans to make it at least bearable!

Re: Our Bus Conversion Project

You guys are really rolling on that build! Looks great. Love all the pictures. What's the dimensions of the bunks (mattress width)?
