i have been on vacation from the bus the past few months. I really need to get back to work and "finish" things up.
I would like to have the bus finished and ready to sell on ebay by the spring.
The last of the big projects is the convertable roof above the jacuzzi. I think i've decided on a final design. It'll pretty much just hinge in the front and a small atv winch or electric linear actuators on the roof will open and close the roof while parked. The bus cannot be driven with the roof in the upright position.
I also want to add an air compressor to once again make the front door open/close by remote keyless
Add electronic cruise control
mount a hose reel to keep garden hoses nice and tidy
Touch up a few things, like re-treading the front stairs
replace broken/cracked windows
add a flat panel TV/DVD player
add twin chrome exhaust stacks on the roof with small (3-5 foot) user friendly flame throwers.
overall, the bus is currently in excellent shape.
to sell the bus on ebay, i first want to shoot a short amateur video of the bus. Think music video/car commercial. I also want to have a photo shoot with some hot model girls. bus photos always look better when there are hot women in the camera frame. The photos hopefully will suggest that if you own this bus, you too can attract incredibly hot women.....come to think of it, having the bus has attracted incredibly hot women! where do you think i found the girls for the photo shoot? lol
be interesting to see what kind of price THIS bus fetches on EBAY
the original black plague went for over $7,300. That was with my zero feedback rating as I was a first time ebay user, and an engine that had almost 300,000 miles on it. The new bus is much nicer than the old one from the powertrain to the interior. if you google "black plague bus" or "jacuzzi bus" the first 4 or 5 hits all come back to my bus which i think is pretty cool. my ebay rating is now around 30 with 100% positive feedback.
then it's on to the tour bus.......
