Well I recently bought my bus and am now building and bargain hunting trying to get it ready to head out to the Little Sahara sand dunes. Thought I needed a thread to post my pics and progress.
I have done the basics and stripped the seats and flooring. The most noticeable progress so far has been skinning the windows today. I bought 2 sheets of 20g sheet metal 10'x4' and had it sheered to 10'x2'. Its just primered to keep it from rusting right now but painting the bus will follow shortly which I expect to make a huge difference. I left 6 windows in it and had about 5' left over to shave lights and such. With a couple tubes of silicone, primer, and some screws I spent just over $100 skinning the windows.
Hopefully more to come soon.
