Hello from the last frontier

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. Been a member for a couple of years now and enjoying all the posts. A lot of great info to be had here.
With that said, I am working on a project that you may or may not be interested in. It is and isn't a skoolie. I am working on marrying a discarded school bus body to a Class 8 truck. It is a drawn out process that has been going on for a while now. If anyone is interested I will try to keep you up on what is happening. Let the comments fly.

There are some early pictures in the photo section in the album titled Strange Marriage. Mostly working on the truck now when I get a break from the everyday toils.

I wanted to put a shorty body on a deuce and a half frame and drive train so I'd have a 6x6 bus. .

Don't see why that wouldn't work.

The hood isn't long enough to sit over the deuce diesel without a fairly big doghouse. The shifter comes through the floor in the wrong spot.

There's just a few issues.
