try a water mister. Ive seen them used at junk yards where the temps (central Ca.) are well over 100 degrees. They work really well and don't take a rocket scientist to design/build--most of us could build one I'm sure

i assume you are talking about the interior cooling of the bus. if so, you can buy an aftermarket air conditioner and have someone install it. a universal one from vintage air would work fine, depending on your bus size. i think they start at less than $1000.

Does that work similar to a regular car or van a/c?
