If you ever have a parts hoard, I'd take a rear end. Or at least the axles. That rear (highly modified) is what I run in my race car.

Got the shorty registered as an RV today! It was really simple, in WA state, I went in with my license, title, bill of sale & I had to show proof of the weight of the vehicle. The gal working just googled the same bus online to find it.

It said the shorty was 15k lbs, sound about right to you guys? The only problem was it costs $412! Not cool. Oh well, $116 for tabs every year. It's definitely worth it.

I'm back!! Sorry I haven't updated in so long. I rushed the conversion since I only had 12 days to do it before heading to Oregon for the eclipse. I'm back home now and have finally had a chance to edit my videos!

Here is the first video which includes my journey to Colorado to go pick up my shorty


Here is the second video! This documents the first part of my build!


I hope you enjoy. I have had a blast with the conversion thus far and there is still so much left to do! Let me know what you think of the videos, thanks!

That slab 'O Wood your dad harvested was amazing. Clever bed system, too.

Thanks for sharing !

This bus is exactly what I am looking for in the coming year! Love what you are doing to it. Would you be able to disclose year, transmission, rear end ratio? How does it drive down the highway, or what is your comfortable cruising speed? I know a million questions, but your thread got me excited!

I've got a bus like this one, from the same school. The size is perfect!
They'll do 70-75. They do have at545 transmissions.
Mine drives NICE.
oh, btw-
My van was the campus maintenance van for the Cornhuskers!
