Prison bus perks

Our newly purchased shortie (1995 International, Thomas Body, came with tinted windows, security screens, 2 belted jump-seats, a built-in potty (not enclosed) with holding tank and RV style waste outlet and a steel cage around the fuel tank. There's a steel tool locker the size of a small balcony across the back end with steel mesh steps that fold down for routine rear door use. It's kind of funky with some rusty spots at the moment as you might imagine but my wife and i are excited about sprucing her up and hitting the road.

3x on the pics---try Photo Bucket, it seems easiest to use. You are real lucky to have found a bus that has the potty and black water tank included. You'll want to design your floor plan around it. Sounds like a fun project and welcome to the nut house!. Jack

Re: Prison bus perks

The potty on ,further consideration, has to go. It's much bigger than we need and limits the floor plan options too much.
The installers spot welded its stainless steel mounting bolt heads for tamper resistance. I just ruined a brand new cobalt drill bit trying to get one of them out. Now I understand what air chisels are for. I have pics in Photobucket but haven,t figured out how to link this to them yet. Will follow.
