Re: Travelling Man

Very nice! Looks like a certain other bus that was on here for sale a little bit ago. I can't help but notice it is no longer in Arizona!

Re: Travelling Man

You're Welcome,

Yep, That's the bus alright. As originally stated all we did was put in fresh
batteries, started it right up, checked it out for safe travel and soundness
then drove it straight through 500 miles to new owners home. Absolutely
no issues. Las Vegas Truck Stop for fuel, on the road approaching Mesquite
NV. It averaged 70-75 road speed the whole way, up and down hills.
Awesome bus with a new lease on life and fine new owner.





No drama, just the facts. Professionally delivered.

Crown_Guy.

Re: Travelling Man

Thanks everyone, definitely excited to start putting work into this beauty--going to be at it for a while.

I'll try to post updates as time allows but rest assured, in the end this beast will retain the majority of what this coach's original look (at least exterior) brought some of us to love.

Re: Travelling Man

Updates?

Removed half of the factory installed A/C duct work and fixed some minor things I didn't think were repaired properly the first time by the school district:



Really needed better speakers to continue working:



...in order to cover them with original speaker grills I had to mount them from behind:



On to next post to continue attachments...
