I'm hoping to find some freebie heater take-offs in FL. I want to put two or three of them in the "cab" area of my bus.

You can have mine for the shipping cost. Just tell me quick cause they're in a plastic bag ready for my next dump run.

I greatly appreciate it, but the cost to ship would likely be prohibitive.

Those "all metal" bodies are made of longitudinal pieces that run the entire length of the bus (unlike most school buses that consist of numerous pieces bolted together). My model, the "Lifeguard", was made particularly to withstand collisions and maintain structural integrity.

You might want to rethink the tossing of the heaters
as they can be used with solar water heat or put a
water jacket on your pellet stove and use one at the
other end of the bus for heat distribution.Just saying.

Or, as Nat has done, tie them into your cooling system for additional engine cooling

maybe I could mount them under the bus and loop them back into the radiator line to throw off some heat. that might work. yech, they're so filthy. I don't know where to keep them until I'm ready for that project.
