Sayin' hi and askin' questions. :)

I've been lurking around the site for awhile now and decided it was time to jump in.

I bought my 1997 Bluebird on March 5th of this year. I have an amazing young man helping me with my conversion. Slow progress but not no progress.

Seats are out. Floor Rustoleumed (new verb). Paneling removed. Roof raised. Outside 90% skinned. Hoping things will start moving along steadily now that the rough stuff is done.

Thinking about vents. The front half of my bus will be fairly open. The back half will be sectioned into a bathroom area and a sleeping area. Even with the middle hallway, I'm wondering if the sectioned off areas will block airflow. I sleep really hot on a good night so I want to make sure I have good ventilation in the back. Is three too many? May be a dumb question but I have no idea. All input greatly appreciated.

This picture looks like you paneled-over the windshield. Lol.

Looks like a nice ride- what's the Big Plan for Lily?


You and I think alike when it comes to windows- over-rated.

Oh, there's going to be windows. Just not school bus windows.

Taking my show on the road. She'll be my only home. Downsizing and traveling. Can't wait.

Looking good. As far as vents, lots of people swear by the "fantastic fans"
I plan on 2 but 3 may be perfect for you. Good luck and have a blast !
