some states you cant do it... many states require a bus no longer used for active school transport to be painted other than National school bus yellow... other states require the lights painted over or completely removed...

I think when it looks like a school bus virgin you have less likilyhood of getting stopped.. but having chimneys out the roof, or curtains on windows, windows covered etc.. tips off police that its no longer an active school bus.. and they stop you..

many of us drove busses across the country when they were bought because they totally blended in.. with no conversion being done other than the school name is usually sprayed over by most school systems before selling a bus.. thats a tip-off but only noticeable from the side...
