The B.B. Bus (Crown)

So we made the drive from LA to just outside Washington DC!
Long drive in a vintage double clutch transmission.
But all went well.
Stay tuned for a most magnificent build!

They are all original 100 year old solid brass 20Ē porthole windows.

Iím replacing all rectangle windows with a 20Ē porthole. Iím replacing the back 2 windows with 2 bigger windows.

Iím going down in a couple weeks.

Update of very very rough interior to follow.

I am buying enough windows to cover both sides evenly.
When you look at a high end yacht or jet they do not reduce window count based on interior layout.
I am spacing windows evenly In on both sides. Except that on one side I am putting in a 7íx7í hinged window/roof for a deck on 1 Ton retractable slides.
