I added a new album

If you are interested I added a new album for you to see how my deck is attached. I also included a couple of shots of the ladder on the back.

If you would like to see any additional shots just let me know.

A few pics of the shorty

GWB (Great While Buffalo) and I have a partnership going on this bus. Like him, I have gotten quite a few great ideas from this site. Thanks!

We have quite a bit left to do on this and in between work, family, activites, etc, we have littel time left over for works on the bus, but hey what's new.

Back to GWB's original post, about the roof deck:

With the inherant lean of the bus (The dualies make the rear sit 3-4 inches higher).

Here are a couple pics I have so far. I'll add more generic pics

Used to be transportation for a retirement home in South Dakota.

Here is what the inside used to look like:

Benches, heater vents and uncovered cushions are in:

Other side:

Good help is hard to find:

A couple of things that we are looking to implement in the near future:

- Roof Deck
- small electrical system that will run a 15 inch TV or a small stereo and a window AC unit
- Tow Hitch (For a boat when the rear deck is not attached)
- Rear tow hitch deck

Have a couple questions in regards to paint. The bus itself is a deep green. There are some patches that are flaking off, however there is no real rust or anything alarming. I am trying to figure out if sand blasting and then a paint job would be best, or just regualr sanding and roller painting would work. One thing I would like to do is lighten the paint. It's how in the summer and I don't live a particularly cool summer climate.
