I'd have preferred to be closer to Katy, but beggars can't be choosers. So in a bit Heavy Fuel will be in her new home. Pics to follow.
Buses seem to have this effect a lot of places. Sucks

If you run into problems again I can get you the info for the storage unit I'm at. The guy who owns it is pretty awesome. He lets us run extension cords, borrow his forklift, and even helped us get the wheelchair lift out. There's already one bus that's fully converted, and another couple people working on conversions there too.

There just happens to be a place called CubeSmart about 7 miles from where I live. They have a 9ft x 40ft outdoor rental space for $80.00/month. I may go that route.

Austin1989us, I'd be interested in looking at the place you have as well since I'm not far from Tomball. If you can get me the info that would be great, thanks.

Went to the bus today to do some demo'ing with my son and a good friend of his. WOW did we get some stuff done! We removed all the rubber flooring, removed a bunch of screws in the walls and ceilings, discovered the intercom works, er, is overpowered for the bus (LOL). Had fun calling attention to ourselves as a result. They were thinking about going back tomorrow to do more. However, My son and his friend are now passed out on the couches after their showers, and are sound asleep. We started at 0800 this morning, and finished at 1730 this evening. Here are the pics:

You can see in the last pic where some of the screws are very stubborn. Will be using a grinder to finish them off.
