Iím really thinking of getting a larger bus as we ran out of room very often on the one I currently own. Iím really fond of the flat nose busses lately, as it seems there are a lot more room in them.
So what do you all think I should do, try to fix up the current one, or find another one to replace her?
I've got some pictures of the bus now that it's out of the water and in a salvage lot that'll all post as soon as I get them off my camera.
If it were me and I was wanting a bigger bus anyway and given the money you have gotten, I would find another to redo. I lived thru the floods of '93 here with the missisppi river and to get that smell out you would have to gut it all the way out. so wether you do a new conversion or clean out the old one you are facing a complete gutting out of the interior. plus the electricals, gauges, switches will be full of muck as well. the insulation will be soaked with it behind the walls and ceiling. start fresh and learn from your past experiences when you are laying the new one out.
