Hello from the Space Coast

Hi, we just got our bus on 02/17/2018. It is a 1990 Ford Bluebird with a 6.6 diesel that we picked up on public surplus auction. I am a teacher and my wife is a homemaker. We have 2 kids, 4 (boy) and 1.5 years (girl), a cat (Ninjakitty), and a hamster. We are hoping to have our build done by before August rolls around.

I want to say in advance that I appreciate all of the advice that I have read in this forum. I'll be starting a "conversion post" with pics of the tear down and build. Thanks!

Thank you all for the warm welcoming.

I started a build thread under the conversion forum.
