That's what I want.
I'm just gonna get creative a bit I suppose. Its too cool an opening to lose.

That guy that suggested to get rid of the door is a noob.

Why do u need painters dude. Can't u rent the spray machine and do it yourself?

I am not good at Spraying - but I helped my nephew with my bus. If you have the paint and sprayer - I would be happy to come up and give it a whirl!

And definitely keep the door.

Well I've taken auto body class and sprayed a few cars in my teens, but I'm looking for someone GOOD at spraying to get a really nice finish.
Looking to go that extra mile and have a really nice paint job.
the big bus will likely be rustoleum as usual. And I'll definitely do all that myself.
But Im wanting this daily driver bus to have a bit more pizzazz than the average conversion.
Gonna look great with that big chrome duck and big chrome pipe!

Fingers crossed...
Midwest Transit says they can special order me the seal for the WC door. $300... pretty steep, but I've only got $1700 in this bus and that seal would really MAKE the "restoration".
I can get the door repaired and rust proofed for very little $.
What yall think?
I think I may order that seal tomorrow!

That's great news except for the cost.

Yeah, but I don't mind paying for quality, or for essentials.
I honestly figured it would be at least a couple hundo.
Its such a sweet SWEET lil bus it may be worth it I think.

Another thing I'm trying to figure out is what tail lights to go with.
I like the flanged type semi's all have, so I may go with those.

I wish all you smart, creative folks were close by. We need more get-togethers.
