Newbie in NTx

Got the bug after looking at tiny hoses. We decided a bus conversion made more sense. I scored a 1994 Ford Carpenter Classic with a 6BT/Allison AT on CL for $800.00. 114.8k showing on odo and 117k on rear axle. Looks like a got another project. Looking forward to learning from y'all and getting this beast out on the road.

Planning to be mobile but also hope to maintain a home base. Might be renting out the homestead with agreement to be able to return and park. This will probably take most of 2018 to get road ready.
