Here is the progress so far. This is as cheap as I could be! The bus was acquired through a trade and the previous owner painted the windows black. it was a hassle to remove so I embraced it and painted over it. I've started the buildout. I have a small 100W solar panel charging two 100AH batteries that go to an inverter. I recently got a larger solar generator with 4 150W panels also. This has been fun so far, I am loving it!

It does need more antennas! I have a CB/PZ for it but have not installed it yet.

The light strips are -

I have two strips so far. They are very bright!

I agree with Bansil, MOAR ANTENNAS ! ! !

I however, am an amateur radio operator, so there is ALWAYS a need for MOAR ANTENNAS !

I know what a CB is but what is a PZ?

I was sorta kidding... they amplify your signal. They're illegal for most intents and purposes, but most of the CB crowd have been running them for many moons.
My dad had one growing up, a big sucker with glass vacuum tubes... He could talk to folks REALLY far away.

I've know a lot of folks who used them. Never known anyone who got busted but I do remember something about Dad having to buy the neighbor a new TV once.

My buddy has a CB that will light up a fluorescent lightbulb if it is held near the antennae while keyed up.
