Well here we go!

Just took delivery of my project, an 86 Thomas Saf-T-Liner, 84 passenger. I rode it home with the bus driver that delivered it for us (I don't have a CDL at this time). He said the engine is strong with lots of pep, but the power steering is going out

My tentative plan is to convert it into a tiny house on wheels, the appliances (besides the range) only 12V with solar panels and a battery bank.

First things first, those seats must go! Most of the work is going to be me alone, my wife has too many knee problems to help out much, so unbolting the seats with someone underneath with a wrench on the nut is a non-starter. So, to Harbor Freight for an angle grinder!

Upload the pics to photobucket and post the links.

IMO Photobucket is hands down the best in photo hosting.

Nice bus.

You even have the rear wing.

We don't see many of them as they are a $400 part made of aluminum.

Sweet.

I see you used photobucket. Good job.

Nice thing about using a hosting site like photobucket VS uploading to this site is, you can use the same links on as many forums and sites as you like. You can even connect them to facebook.

I would hate to have to upload the pics to all five sites I post on.
