Sounds like you are moving forward. I think that bus will be a great starting point for a fantastic conversion!.
Yeah, the guy absolutely does not like to communicate. I've gotten that feedback from the mechanic I hired to do the inspection also.
I think EastCoast put his finger on it when he called it a $4500 bus. I am assuming that I'll need 6 new shoes pronto (like before the trip home); hence my panic when I heard it had 12R's on it.
It's gone on so long, I won't feel any reluctance to walk away if we can't come to a meeting of the mind. There's no magic left here; just an appreciation for the right drivetrain and lo miles.
