Just getting Started!

Picked up my 96 GMC Bluebird gasser in February. So far in my build I have the sub floor, electric and AC in. Pictures are a before and after of the recently completed paint job. Next up water and waste water systems!! Web site has been a large help in overcoming many issues!

Nice looking bus!

One suggestion, the lights on top on the front and back. Swap the covers so they are all amber in front and red on back. Only official vehicles are allowed to have red in front in at least a few states!

I would be building compartments underneith for the waste tanks, etc. This is one of the first jobs that needs done so the bus can be self-contained.

Thank you for your suggestion. My goal is to draw as little attention as is possible!

I agree tanks need to be the next project. I am going to get the toilet and shower base to verify where I want them will work. Any idea on a good source for the tanks?
