Yes they did. It was very intense. There was nothing underengineered about it.

nice... would like to have seen how the rear cargo bay door worked. I wanted to do something similar when i was originally planning my bus to haul my motorcycle. They did a good job too cramming all that into the front half of the bus.

Plotting the next project now. Looking for a clean diesel pusher with low rust/miles. Identical plans with plumming and biodiesel added :)

Sorry I don't have any more photo's. I looked around and no dice. It was an interesting peice of engineering. They used the existing bus rear end (rear wall, door, rear cap) and cut the whole thing of after removing the internal skin, reinforcing with aluminum tubing, then sheeting over the whole thing inside to give a ramp surface. They had large custom made barel hinges for the ramp/rear end. The lights worked and it looked pretty much stock from the outside. They used an electric winch that was mounted inside to raise and lower the ramp. They said it worked pretty well.
