WOW! that looks awesome. It also looks like a lot of work and $$. The glass blocks really make the look.

Looks great! So is this rig just for your enjoyment or do you book it for events and such? How is the new floor working out? Good luck and keep up the great work! -Richard

no, i don't rent the bus out. if i did that, then i'd be forced to go the commercial vehicle route.

i have taken groups of friends or aquaintanences out on the town from time to time and recieved a hefty donation however.

mostly i just use the bus for fun. it's a great way to attract hot young women !

Really cool! That glass block idea with the light behind it is very clever. I bet you throw a heck of a party in there!

the bus is prob 90% finished inside. Here are some early photos. I need to work on my photography lighting. It's tricky.......the glass block wall looks best when it's dark with it's blue lights illuminating the block, but that makes the rest of the bus difficult to see....

click here for the entire album of new bus photo's http://www.skoolie.net/gallery2/album11

this first photo is of the mirrored wall and the newly flame-painted ceiling.








better photo's to come......

I also added some 500w hallogen lights to the exterior of the bus. I'll downgrade the bulbs to 250w when i get the chance to make it easier to run them off the inverter. Currently i have the stock bulbs in the units, but i'll eventually purchase some extreme duty hallogens. These things are amazingly reziliant compared to standard bulbs.

All I can say is WOW, it doesn't even look like the same bus inside. You are going to HAVE to bring it to the Iowa vs Iowa State game this year.

It will be Sept 10 2005 in Ames, IA
