Gillig in Western Colorado

Hello, I recently acquired a 1998 Gillig Phantom with the the cummins ISX. Seems not to may do transit bus conversions so we shall see how this progresses (lol). This unit was part of the Eagle County transit authority so it spent its life around Vail. I have a Webasto heater on it so I am hoping to use it as my compartment/ water heater for sake of simplicity. but honestly I'm just tearing *^it up now.

It was hard getting a bus locally they were all expensive. I went with the Gillig as I got it for 2800, that was 2 to 3 cheaper than the re flat nose I was seeking.
