Low Profile Metrotrans Conversion

Well, I bought this Bus last year and posted a couple of pics. A few people laughed and said it was too small to be here! Well, here it is again, along with an update as to the project. The Bus is a 1996 MetroTrans "Classic 12" on a E-350 Cutaway. We have a mobile BBQ and catering business and saw it as the perfect rig for our equipment. The Bus served us very well last season and it is now in rebuild for new paint and lettering. Here are a few pics of the process so far. In the end it will be "Pin-up" Red. All of the artwork is being done by an "Old School" sigh painter.
The Bus had four layers of paint that had to come off using chemical strippers. The aluminium body was in very good shape. The Bus will get all new extruded molding, LED lighting and a few tricks.
