Well that means you have at least another 12 inches to build up! Plenty of room for a party platform.

That's one beautiful bus, Smitty. I'll bet you grin from ear to ear when you stand back and look at it. Top notch work, Captain.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Smitty-
I don't know where all you're planning on going in your bus, but you strike me as someone who might take it pretty far off the beaten path, so... I'd suggest you evaluate how susceptible your camera, and any other high up, potentially kind of fragile things (maybe antennae), might be to getting whacked by tree limbs. I've had my marker light covers ripped off before, and that pissed me off. I imagine if I had my camera/other cool, somewhat expensive stuff damaged, there'd be a small outpouring of obscenities. It wouldn't be hard to rig an enclosure of some sort, if necessary.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Don't forget to take that rear step off while you are driving. You will drag it. My step has hit ground and it's not as far back as yours.
