I find poly tanks ("opaque plastic") are a pain to repair. ABS is much easier for me to repair. Just saying. My fresh waster tanks are ABS.

Have to agree with Lorna. Plus the poly tanks I have had over the years all made for poly flavored water. ABS does not seem to add any flavor.

Re: Let the converting begin!!

That is a great bus! My advice is to not get in a hurry and make hasty decisions.Keep all the windows you possibly can and don't build walls. Planning and fine tuning the plan, then refining that plan then upgrading your materials will pay off. Plus, it's fun when you are unable to actually work on the bus. I look forward to seeing your progress. Congratulations.
