So me and my wife have been watching van life videos on YouTube for many years now and decided to get a short bus to renovate into a occasional weekend camper.
We are going to be looking at one this Sunday. 96 gmc with the 5.7 motor. If it checks out Iíll be trading my 04 Ram for it.
We are both excited and scared a little at what messes we might be getting into.

Just wear all the person protective equipment recommended for the activity you are doing. I don't know about van threads but bus threads have some serious accidents requiring trips to the hospital, stitches and even surgery!! A full face mask is your friend when angle grinding!!
