I'm at just over $5000 - I estimate another $5000 - $6000 to get it to where I want it to be

I'm in the vicinity of $10,000 USD (not counting stuff like my welder and welding class and tools etc. that can't only be used on the bus) and lots more work to do.

My biggest expense so far is the batteries!
$195 -- I got lucky -- was given two dead batteries to turn in for cores!
$75ish for fuel filters and fuel treatment (biocide and cetane boost)
$40 for power steering res. and tail light lenses
$5 for miscellaneous hardware
$60 for a 50' role of Ni-Cu tubing to renew the hydraulic brake lines (rust! )

So around $375 into the bus -- that's assuming I get reimbursed the $430 tow charge (I will just takes time...) to get the bus moved to it's new home.

It's now running great but if Vt. doesn't come through with the rego it's all a waste to me...

I'm at two

That's two full bags of Home despot receipts. Then there's Amazon, ebay, eTrailer, Camping World, etc I have no idea how much.

I figure that when I get the bus done I'll go out on a maiden voyage to enjoy the fruits of my labors. I plan to bring a bottle of vodka and a lighter. I'll start drinking when I start adding the cost of the purchases. If the numbers get too big I'll set the bags of receipts on fire and joyfully finish my drink.

I'm having too much fun to worry about the cost at this point. My guess is between 15 & 20 before it's said-n-done.

I was afraid you were going to say something like: 'the vodka is to celebrate my success, or use the vodka (and lighter) to set the farker on fire...'

I have little to no idea what it will cost to make a proper rolling bar out of my bus -- I only know the bar must be awesome! (those are the wifes general specs! She will design the keg-orator/taps & Co2 plumbing requirements -- I will make it happen...)
