My bus has rust, not nearly that much and it is a PAIN. Every time you want to remove a screw or bolt get out the grinder.....
The bigger problem is that you will probably have a hard time passing the road worthy inspection. That is the worst part.
Well.. add a zero to the $ and then some... I think the gig is up and I'm back on the hunt.
Ya'll are awesome and very welcoming to a Newbie like me who has not looked enough to know where expectations should be. I have a much better understanding now and will trade a few grand for a more pleasant conversion
Through this thread a got a bunch of good leads of where to look... gonna head to Maine this weekend then maybe down to Maryland as suggested to find a rig fit for conversion. If anyone knows of a specific ~40footer with a high roof, larger engine (might tow) and underbody compartments. let me know kybclark (at) gmail.com. Total budget is <$18k for conversion... trying to figure out how much is right to spend on the bones.
Thanks again! -Kyle
