Hello there

I just picked up a 1990 Chevy school bus conversion and will be using this site as a reference tool. I am looking forward to the journey ahead! I am in Austin, Tx.

Okaly dokaly. This is how I picked it up. It is a really good jumping off point since most of the work is done. It is in great mechanical shape and has all new tires. I am looking forward to enjoying my former hippie bus.

Looks nice, but I would definitely gut it from top to bottom. 1) to rebuild it to how you want it, 2) get rid of whatever potential creeping crud is lurking behind those steel panels in the original insulation, and 3) replace the crappy fiberglass insulation with something with a better R value.

But, that's just me

Whoa. Sorry for the double post. Scooter, I bought this thing cheap and I am just wanting to enjoy it as is really. I will have to post up some pics after I get the bed and curtains sorted.
