Newbie but already gathering pieces

My wife and I are going to be hopefully buying a short bus. Not sure the right term but the kind that is used at airports for transport from the parking lots. Already have some pieces for the conversion and picking up some more on Saturday. Very excited and planning on lots of reading on here to get ideas and up to speed on pieces I may not know.

Shoulds like you're looking at a shuttle bus? Make sure to look at engine hours and not just miles, those things tend to run for 8 hours at a time while only covering 10 miles per day!

Welcome aboard, and save your receipts!
We ended up selling or not using a bunch of stuff we thought would work, but ended up just not being quite right.

So far I have been able to grab things for cheap off of Facebook Marketplace. Think I have less than $150 out for all the pieces I have acquired. Will do my best to make them work but if not I will sell them off to the next person who could use them.
