Sounds like a promising idea! Folks with shorter buses often have to come up with creative bunk ideas since they take up so much space!

Re: The Dirtybus...

Yeah, I'll be posting up details as they are being built...

Finally got off my ass to start on the lights... Been slacking for a bit with the weather and Thanksgiving...

Picked up some 24 bulb 4" round leds for the brake and turn signals in the rear...

Have to open the existing holes a 1/2" to make them fit...

These should look pretty sweet on the bus...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Very cool bus. I enjoyed your pictures of your build. I am wondering what you did with the door and the frame that you removed. If you haven't trashed them, I would like to work a deal with you. I wonder if your bus has the same profile as my BB?

Re: The Dirtybus...

I still have the frame and door... I did cut the inside of the door open so I could grind rivets and steal the rub rail... I plan on pulling the rubber for the window out as well... I'm betting that the frame wont match up to yours though... I've looked at the Blue Bird that the kids ride to school and the radius is different than mine...


Edit::: You posted BB, but I see you have International/Wayne in your info...

Re: The Dirtybus...

I also have a 1989 BB All American RE. The emergency door on the drivers side is tiny. When you get a chance, could you measure the door?

Re: The Dirtybus...

Sorry about that, completely forgot... I'll get the measurements for you...

Well, I'm gonna get back on the bus I promise... I had the county come out and show me an ariel pic of my place and said that my carport was never permited... Now I have to tear it down... I planned on doing it eventually, but it was to easy to use it for semi dry storage... I plan on taking the sides and roof off and dropping the frame to the ground and running it into a deck...

I also picked up a 1980 Jeep Cherokee Laredo for my daughter's 18th B-day next month... It needs some work but she's really excited about it... It's one of the full size jeeps like the Wagoneers but a 2dr... That's gonna chew up some time as well...

On one of the 4x4 forums that I'm on, I have a build thread about the bus... A guy on the forum PM'd me out of the blue and said he has a motorhome that he's scrapping... I went and took a look and it has a nice Magic Chef stove, 3-way fridge, water heater, sink, pump, Coleman furnace that's much bigger than mine, a bunch of lights, all the plumbing, complete bathroom, the list keeps going... I asked him what I could take and he said I can have everything... I just had to bring him a bottle of whiskey... So, today me and the boys went and started dismantling the thing... I'll post pics of the bounty after I get everything out...

Re: The Dirtybus...

So, I got the clear lenses for the upper lights today...



Also got the cot replacement material last week...



A huge thanks to Dan(basher13) for hooking me up with a bunch of stuff...



He let me tear the inside out of a motorhome over the last couple of weeks... I grabbed just about everything I could... I'll post up some pics of what I pulled from the Winnie a little later...



Here's the lenses... They should light up camp really nicely...
