A misspelled play on words, I decided to name her something for now, and the old battleship came to mind. Mechanically she seems fine. Only 2 of the tires look less than 70%(more like 10%) I have been bidding on buses for several months now and the ones I wanted always seemed to go a grand beyond what I was willing to pay(the last batch of Alabama buses went for over $7k) So I dropped a bid on this one early, and wound up driving 600 miles to get her.
Here she sits, still on the other side of Columbus, Ohio
For the last 9 months I have been busting my ass, fixing my house to prepare for sale. After the sale, my vision is to semi-retire, sell most of my crap, and travel the US on a "working vacation". With a few requirements, I hope to cram my entire life into this rig. I am a webmaster, so I need to power electronics, and plan to install solar. I also ride motorcycles on and off-road, which is why I was interested in the wheelchair lift.
Gonna be a tight squeeze.
So I got off to a good start yesterday, and removed the seats in less than an hour.
Then, I decided since that was easier than expected, the floor should be just as easy.
Then, I met THIS GUY
The floor appears to be nailed, glued and bolted the metal subfloor, theu the track system. So I guess I am supposed to remove all the track-bolts (100+) from the underside?
If so, I will be purchasing an air-wrench today
