Re: New Project 1996 Ford E-350 7.3L Shuttle Bus

Okay so I was able to get the other speaker installed, and then added a DPDT Center Off Toggle from The Shack and DIY'ed a speaker switch, so now you can choose from the front or outside speakers. depending what you need, and the rear facing speakers remain on. Here's some other random pics.




Also I found some sort of power thingy( still searching for better term) on the passenger overhead compartment, and have no idea what it is, been trying to track down the company( somewhere in Mexico) and there seems to be a plug in the engine compartment that may originate from said power thingy, next to the small accessory battery, any ideas?

SWEET!

The Ombiance has similar specs. We always love the Shuttle Bus - I bet there is a lot of room - and the windows...!

*ahhh yeah*

Looks a bit like an amp, but it's kinda hard to tell from that view. I used to have an old 400 watt car stereo amp that looked like that. Is it connected to anything else that you can tell or are there any obvious wires or sockets connected to it?

Re: New Project 1996 Ford E-350 7.3L Shuttle Bus

As a fellow Metrotrans bus owner, I was curious if you'd possibly be able to post some picture of the bus doors/frame plus the mechanics that operate it, namely the long levers and hinges above the door. Mine has a strange issue of pulling outwards of about 6" while driving and I'm thinking that something is either broken or missing. It's one of the last things on my list of major items that need to be fixed to get it closer to inspection

This is the bus I want!! Very jealous, how is the gas mileage? When I wasn't looking, had tons of buses around for sale, now the market is sparse. Still need to get rid of my 20 ft enclosed trailer and the wheelchair van so still not quite ready but I want your bus!

Hey nice score on the bus. Never thought of using old restaurant seating in one of these. I'm still looking for a bus, and trying to make it as modular as possible. These would fit the bill, of course with a way to bolt them down.

Interested to see what you do with it, I'll be watching.

Sorry everyone, I was outta commission for a bit ( injured my leg at the end of last year, still recovering). Also. I lost my investment in this bus. the band disbanded, the bus left up north, and possibly sold. Dunno...all a tad shady. But, eventually I will buy another one and start again. Thanks again stay tuned...
