Smile Freightliner Finally Runnning

I finally, after a little concern, more like a paranoid worry, got my Freightliner bus with the 24 valve, 5.9 Cummins diesel running. Yes!!!!
I poked at it over the last year and a half, unbolted the seats, replaced all the hoses to the box heater that was under a seat, the hose leak was the reason this bus was sold, fixed the bent door mechanism (electric doors), and replaced the starter I apparently burned out.
It's finally time to start the conversion part of the process.
I live north of Atlanta, Georgia, on I75, and if there is anyone out there who wants to trade some work on their bus for helping me with mine it would be great. I'm reasonably handy with plumbing, electrical, and general maintenance.
The typical questions are now coming to the forefront, how and where the bathroom & shower are going, the general layout, and how to do this all with enough room for my wife and her electric wheel chair. I need a bed I can raise the head of for reflux problems. Last will be getting it designated a motor home, register and insure it. I already titled, registered, and insured my other bus, an E-450, as a motor home. All the while reading the forums for ideas.

Sweet! There is something about the sound of a machine running after long hibernation that makes me smile too
