New Project - 95 Shuttle Bus

My wife and I bought a 1995 Shuttle bus with 7.3 Powerstroke. Just a few days after purchase and we are excited. Hoping to get a salvage RV to use parts, but struggling to find one in western Kansas. If anyone has ideas, suggestions please let us know. We are a little clueless, but I think we have a good plan in place.

Re: New Project - 95 Shuttle Bus

Ok sorry guys. Here is the first picture that I tried to attach with my first submission. We have gotten to the tear down point right now and luckily haven't run into many issues. Floor is mostly solid, but needs some patch work. In case your curious the wheel chair lift has been removed I will try and post a few more interior pics tonight.

If anyone has ideas on these issues please let me know:

We want to put a minivan seat we got in the back for our son and safe travel, any thoughts on bolting it down? It was on a track to be folded and moved back and forth so I am problem solving ways to put a track in the floor, but with obvious issues. What about seat belts? What is the best way to bolt in seat belts?

Any thoughts on after market brackets for the water tanks?

Any other tips or "watch out for"s?

Re: New Project - 95 Shuttle Bus

Wow, when you say tear down you mean tear down. How's it look rust wise now that you can see all? What are the floor dimensions (behind driver/pass)? I like the rear lift door and the glass side door

Re: New Project - 95 Shuttle Bus

There is some surface rust in two areas, around the lift door behind the passenger seat and by the back door on the passenger side. Looks like they fixed the leak a while ago, but didn't pull the panels to clean up the mess. I have sanded it and will paint with a rust converter. I have taken our the rear air to put in some storage space. I am somewhat concerned about the ability of the front air to keep it comfortable in the back, but with max air on it seemed OK at 90 degrees today. Repaired the floor today. I will post a picture tomorrow in the day light. I plan on running electric and starting to construct the storage cabinets tomorrow.

The dimensions are 13'x6 1/2' behind the seats. This includes the stair well. Which takes up some space. We have worked up a few floor plans that will fit very snuggly. If anyone has suggestions please let me know.
