Pink Floyd Bus

I started my conversion project a few months ago.. I have been juggling my conversion project with the restoration of a 1740's colonial in MA, so things have been taking longer then originally anticipated, but however slow we are going things are starting to look good. I would estimate we are about 50% of the way finished at this point..

Re: Pink Floyd Bus

Bought the bus in Warwick, RI... New England winters can be a little tough on a skoolie..

Re: Pink Floyd Bus

A rendering I made to help me visualize the end product.. I drew this before finding the bus and somehow knew to draw it as a 97 Chevy.. I guess this little bus was just meant to be.. I already own the teardrop with the vehicle tent.. It has been appropriately named "The Treehouse"
