1997 Arizona State University Themed Blue Bird Tailgater

Hello- we recently purchased a 1997 MiniBird to convert into an Arizona State University themed tailgating machine. The bus has about 117k on it, and runs flawlessly. It went through emissions and is now minus all of the seats and at the paint shop. Once it gets back from paint it's getting some temporary "RV amenities" to allow me to get it titled as an RV. Once that's done the new flooring, stereo, seating and TV's will be installed. I'll be sure to post some pictures as construction progresses! A huge thanks to everyone on this site as many of the threads and posts have allowed me to move forward with this project with some confidence. Timeline is to have the bus done in the next 3 weeks. Here's a few pics of it when I picked it up this week:

I know! Should be achievable for the most part. Going through the while rv title thing will take some time but everything else is planned and ready.

Probably true, but we are going to have fun with the new bus either way!

Any pics of your progress?

Your bus looks almost exactly like mine, except I only have 5 windows down the driver's side.
