Congrats on getting your bus.
Don't be overwhelmed.
Take it step by step.
It will go faster, easier and better little by little.
Start researching exactly what you want to do and what your end goal is.
I have nearly the same bus as you, if you have any questions or problems feel free to ask.
Have fun, that is what skoolies are about.

Thank you all so much for the encouragement. Definitely feeling better about it today. Bought it from a school district so hopefully has the welds repaired. Don't pick it up until Wed. We are very excited.

mine is a 2002 International 3000 with a DT466 so ours is very similar I guess....? I know nothing about them..
Is it reliable? Are there any know issues I should be concerned about?

the DT-466(E) is known to be one of the best engines out there.. treast it nice and it can easily be a 1/2 million miler before you ever take it apart..

1. DOnt get it hot!!
2. Keep its oil changed!
3. keep the fuel filters changed!
