Care to guess what we are up to?

The name probably says it all. We have been looking and finally got our short bus today. 1991 GMC Vandura G3500 painted white. Needs some work, but seems to run well. I will have to list separately everything that I know is wrong with it and then add the new problems I am finding. That would be when I ask you good people what you might know that could help. We hope to get the items we know about taken care of soon, so maybe we can be in business while we work on everything else. I was looking around on here while we were scouring Craigslist for used buses. Pictures and more details to follow elsewhere in the forums.

Yes sir. Praying we can stay ahead of the items on the list before they overgrow!

Indeed. We also have rusting here and there does anyone have a solution to slow down the process? I was thinking some kind of spray undercoating. Possibly Rustoleum for outdoor metal.
