Just created a folder in the gallery of our conversion project. (Almost complete now) I'll post pictures as I get them over to the PC world. I have learned alot from the posts I have read here and will be piping in to ask some of the more higher end questions that we will need answered as we go. We are mainly using this bus at bike rallies and skydiving boogies and went with the latest hot rod crazz - Rat Rodz It's a 1976 Ford Thomas - unsure about the motor. We were told 391 when we purchased it but was told either 331 or 361 by the parts store. Anyway here's the gallery folder - Rat Bus
Added some more pictures finally of the inside and closer of the outside. We have put the bus up for the winter now but plan on finishing it up first thing this spring. We managed to do the conversion in just under 2 months of weekends. We took her on her maiden voyage back in Sept (when these pictures were taken) and learned of all our little imperfections hope you enjoy
The satin/ flat black is Rustolem flat black. It covered great!!! It only took a gallon but we did not paint the whole roof black before we painted the flames. I had to go out and get a quart more for touch up after the paint job. I sprayed it on reducing it as specified on the label. Now the yellow we could have used 2 gallon to get it to cover well enough.
I like the open aspect of it, particularly the half wall separating the kitchen area from the rear (bedroom?) of the bus. A tall wall there would cut the bus in half and make the inside seem small. Cool paint job, too!
