Hello everyone. I figured it would be time to start posting. I have been a member since last October, just never have posted anything. Iím on the site everyday watching everyoneĎs conversion and getting ideas though. Last November I bought my first bus, a 1991 Bluebird All American. Some of you may have seen it before. I bought it off a member on here. I plan to live in the bus full time for a few years while traveling around the country.
Work on the bus has been very very slow. I work 7 days a week and can only work on it about 4 hours over the weekend. I spent the first few months coming up with the right floor plan. Since then I have been working on the body of the bus. I have done a ton of sanding and filling in holes. I have been working on removing the flashing lights up top for a few weeks now.
The interior was partly converted when I purchased the bus. Most of the work done didnít work with the plans I have though. My dad has been helping me some by redoing the electrical work as well as putting up most of the walls. Itís been a slow process but we are about to the point where the work will start going quicker.
I have enjoyed every minute of working on the bus, well except all of the sanding. I never thought I would like driving a bus, but to my surprise I have a blast while driving it. I canít wait to finish it and hit the road with it. Here are some pictures of it. You can also see some of my videos of the bus at the link in my signature. I'm still trying to come up with a good name for it.

A quick photoshop of what the paint job will look like.
Floor plan. Only thing I have changed is the bed is turned around. The side of the bed will be against the back wall.
