Welcome!!! We need more crazies in this world! --- And there are a number of us building Skoolies in the Greater Houston area. I'm sure they will all chime in shortly.

Meanwhile, don't be shy about asking questions and sharing pix. BTW...yours is now the second "Red Byrd". The first is a shorty.

Hi! I am in Houston and just bought a 2004 Blue bird on Friday. Most people think I am crazy, but are also jealous of the adventures that await me. Are you doing all the work yourself?

Welcome to the fun. I'm on the other side of Lake Houston, in Crosby. Lots of good Houston area folks around. I'm looking forward to your build.
good luck
