Hello from the other side!
Great to be with you, i am writing you from sweden.
This is my latest project, a ford Transit shoolbus/taxi.
I got the bus in may 2015, i got it from a buscompany in stockholm.
In Stockholm they can only use buses and sell services to the city, with vehicles that
are up to 7 years old.
I have only worked with junk before so this was a step up for me.
And the people who don't like ford may think othervice.
My last bus was a Mercedes O309 1967, that run as schoolbus i Älvkarleby.
I bought it 2004 and did alot of work during 4 years, roof lift engine swaps (5), and converted
it to a mobile home, this served me as a home for 2,5 years and i drove through europe and stayed in germany, switzerland, france, spain portugal, luxemburg.
Unfortunaltely i crashed it and it was beyond repair.
So i thought i could root, started a coffee roastery and worked the land with freeranging animals.
One day a friend drove up on my driveway with a caravan chassie and told me he was going
rubber, i shrugged and told him i had quit with tramping and was house people.
But i was wrong, the bug was in me and i bought a small toyota hiace and me and my sons
went roadtripping in south of sweden, 6000km in two months.
The engine sits under the seats so it gets hot inside, i started to look for ways to keep cool.
It was no real good way and working against construction seemed stupid, plus the bus was small really small...
I sold it and bought the bus i am working on now, The ford.
Well, a small intro of me and my project.
