Okay - start to finish pics . . . whoever owned it before us painted the ENTIRE bus, inside and out, with white house paint.

Repaired the floor in front of the drivers seat (with a little redneck ingenuity), installed wood flooring on the steps, and stripped/cleaned the outside window trim.

Paint . . . still have to put the hitch on, repair the exhaust and complete the wiring.

Re: Short Bus Update

Done the plate trick myself a few times. The most recent time I happened to have a junk microwave and used the cover from that.
