A dinette, a crapper, and a murphy bed. A few seats of some sort.
I only ever formulate loose plans when it comes to interior.
But getting the gross seats and flooring out are imperative no matter what we do with it.

Yeah, the more I work on buses the faster the work goes.
This was a first for me- Removed ALL the seats without ever even touching my angle grinder. They all came out with an impact and end wrench.

Make mine a Lazy-Boy CB!
Any running water onboard?
Woodstove?

Nah, no woodstove. Not in a FL shorty!

This will be a grocery getter, freeway flier, and with weekend camping capability.
Somewhere to sleep and poop while traveling.

Drained the pan and changed the spin on filter today.
About two gallons came out.


The color was still red, but turning nasty. GLAD I'm proactive with maintenance!
Gonna drive it around a bit and do a more thorough change and drop the pan this weekend.

The lil chunks of grit aren't from the transmission, I just grabbed this dusty paint cup to get a sample to take a pic.

And- NO MAGNET on the spin on filter!

Biggest issues with this bus are the crappy, broken dashboard, the broken drivers seat, and rattly WC lift that's not even properly bolted down.

I gotta say, I'm not impressed with how Cleveland TX ISD treats their buses or the folks who buy them.

Next weekend I'll change the fluid in the rear diff.
