"Fast Learning" '93 B600 shorty

Finally got my new project home, my bus will be used 99% of the time as a weekend home at the racetrack.Going to replace my Suburban to tow the race car to the track and cut the hotel rooms down, as well as provide refuge for my wife and daughter during the day. It's a '93 Ford B600/Thomas 36 pass, 5.9 cummins with a 5spd. Engine, injection pump, and lift pump all replaced 50,000kms ago. I got a stack 3" thick of maintenance logs and parts receipts, bought it from a dealer and the removed the seats, and replaced the tires,windshield, and a few misc issues that I found. Just doing a basic rv layout with bathroom, double bed, dinette, and some counter space.

Back from the dead! Bus has pretty much been abondoned the last 2 years, bought a S&S motorhome out of frustration and lack of time and have been using it. Kicking into high gear on the bus this winter, sold the motorhome as extra incentive to finish this winter, lol.
Windows removed and sides sheeted in, big hole in the drivers side is for the generator. Kinda bouncing back and forth between inside and outside now.

Looking good!
I take it your tools + spares stay in the trailer? With mine, I have to wrench out of the back of the bus. Looks like you get to use the full length for living area.
