yall should read the rules. links to services or products are scrutinized, but to make your first post to advertise your website for profit is a big, not cool, no-no and anyway ya want to translate it, aint allowed.

i deleted your link. if you really want to sell your bus, post some real links of the pictures, otherwise, adios!

Please post proper links that show the pics here. People dont like clicking on links.

When I see links, I don't even bother.

its cool tribu. it was the link to your business that caused the stir. when we see someone post for the first time, and it appears they are trying to sell for profit, it looks like spam.

peace and paz to yall two.

most people here want to build there own bus the way they want it. from what i see you should be asking less, look on craigslist to compare prices. good luck

I would tend to agree with SuperDave about the price.

Some things working against you is while most of the buses here started out as school bus yellow most jurisdicitons and insurance companies require the school bus yellow to be changed to a different color.

Some things working for you is it would appear as if you have a solar array for recharging your electrical system. Some pictures specific to that would be helpful. Also, your plumbling looks like it was well thought out and laid out very well.

The interior pictures are good but do not include the bath/toilet area or the bedroom. For a lot of people those are make or break items.

Good luck and I hope you get a good price for your conversion.

Electronically controlled engines can have problems if anything except for #2 diesel is used.

Also, it is getting increasingly difficult to find sources of free waste vegetable oil. If you plan is to cross the country using free fuel I would suggest your rethink that proposition.

CA is one of the states that is most particular about the color of buses. The only buses that can be national school bus chrome yellow are buses that are owned or operated for schools on to/from routes. All other buses have to be some other color.

The private operators of school buses have to cover over the overhead crossing lights and all mention of school bus in order to use those buses in any other function besides to/from route transportation.

Although you may not have the time or $$$ to paint your bus it would probably save you time and $$$ if you did. Making government paper pushers happy can eat up a lot of time and $$$ that could better be used doing something else.

After you spend the money to install a veggie system on the bus, you will need to find a source that is not already contracted to a business or individuals, then you need to clean/recycle it for your purpose...on the road it seems to much of a pain in the butt

So if you can can buy used oil at $1 or $1.50 a gallon, then store it or filter it etc on the spot....10 or 12 ft of your bus will be full of tanks/barrels and equipment.

Right now I budget $5 a gallon (actual is about $2.50) and 5 mpg (actual is 10) this gives me lots of Leeway and makes it look like I made money ..... ;)

Good luck with that. Which state you are in makes a lot of difference. Be sure to include that in your title, and take a look through/post in the title/registration/insurance forum. Do some searches for your state when you get over there. Each state is VERY different.
