Whatís missing here?

Can someone tell me what these wires belong to? My bus has been sitting in an unsecured lot for several months, and Iím afraid some things have been stolen out of it. I canít remember if there was anything mounted here before, but here are some dangling wires. 7162F9D3-CB6C-44C6-851A-8BEE3FAD8E5C.jpg

Most likely from the video recording system.

Ah. Thank you for your help. I don’t recall having a camera there in the first place, but that would certainly make sense as a thing thieves would target. There is a camera box with a two-way mirror mounted closer to the center of the dash, though. Could this be something else? Maybe related to the adjecent PA system? The battery in the bus is dead, so I can’t test anything right now.

My bus had a few things that were removed and wires just hanging. Nothing to worry about.

Hey! You remembered me and my motor swap! Sorry I didn’t update like I said I would. The project hit a snag: non-mechanically related. Human drama so explosive Jerry Springer would think it fiction. I did document our progress, and I’ll upload the play-by-play eventually, but the bus is on stand-by right now while we pick up the pieces of our personal lives.
We made quick work of pulling both motors and stripping the bus motor down to bare block. Then, with both vehicles incapacitated, a weird and scandalous love quadrangle erupted between myself, my boyfriend, our mechanic friend, and his female business partner. I suppose diesel can be intoxicating. One thing led to another, and I spent Christmas Eve cowering behind a 1958 Pontiac Star Chief in a dark corner of a garage, while a woman who looks like Rocky Balboa rampaged about smashing windows and threatening to kill me. I don’t have a boyfriend anymore, and my mechanic friend doesn’t have a business partner. Trucks and engine parts are strewn everywhere, and there’s no room to work in the garage.
My bus’ new name is “Nobody’s Girlfriend.” She’ll get her engine eventually, and it’ll be one hell of a blog post.

Hey ApeWriter - I notice that you're in Philly. Can you run down to Darby and pick me up a cheese steak with onions at Falones? It's been AGES since I've had one of their sandwiches. Send it in a CARE package to Montana. And, if you've an inkling, add an Italion as well.

And I thought that my girlfriend ruefully naming my bus The Mistress (because, she said, I spend more time with her than with her . . .) was bad enough.
When you're in your dotage you'll be able to laugh about this recent pimple on the butt cheek of life. It could have been worse - you're still alive and still with a bus, albeit in pieces. Both you and it can eventually be put back together again, like Humpty Dumpty.
