40’ 1999 Bluebird

I got an Oregon school bus, a 1999 40’ Bluebird, took about 10 weeks to strip it down and raise the roof 27” and now I need to move it from sacramento to LA to finish the build. Next few steps are transport ~400 miles then add my 9 5x10 16g steel sheets and start off on rewiring plumbing and framing.

I have lots of pics but haven’t figured out how to add them yet

Looking forward to the pics, which I don't believe you can add until you have 5 posts or more.

Thanx.
I like to raise the bar by lowering it to the lowest common denominator.

No, dawg. You are just a funny shitposter until you buy a bus.

Then we know you are nuts enough to run with the pack.
