So Congrats on your new bus. I am wondering though, what part of Orange County is Long Beach in?
So where are you parking it now? As for attaching walls and such, the framework in my bus is being built out of 6061T6 TIG welded and pop riveted with redheads. The feeling is that building it somewhat like an airframe will give rigidity and strength.
There are a thousand ways to do it right. If you are comfortable with TEK drives go for it. My suggestion if you are doing a lot of wood to metal is to drill pilot holes. Well worth the extra time imho.

Good Luck!!

Joe

Buy a lot for 5 to 10 k out in Riverside or Lancaster. Look for warehouse space in Compton, Dominguez hills, Long Beach, etc.. do not tell them it is for a bus behind closed doors you know.
