New Shorty

Picking up at 12 passenger shorty with a wheel chair lift this weekend. Excited to explore how to lay it out as a mini toy hauler/camper.

Finally Legal

I finally got insurance and plates. Took the lettering off and the kid mirrors in the front.

I got my bus same time as you, but so far I only have a title in hand - and there was an error in the title, so now I'm waiting on the replacement title before I can even start the process of registering in Vermont. I think I'm going to end up with 4-5 months between buying my bus and being able to drive it legally.

I severely underestimated the bureaucracy on this one.

Added a little bling!

Added simulators and peeled off some reflective tape today.
