A bus named Zero

So I've been lurking these forums for a few months now and figured its time to make my own thread, now that I have my bus. She's an '02 International Rear Engine with a DT466 and an MD3060 (6th gear is unlocked as well!), so its basically had everything I was looking for in a bus. Its titled as a truck, has been repainted black, and has most of the seats out. Everything in it is fully functional, and there seem to be no problems with it running/driving. The logs show that maintenance check ups were done regularly, and it was always kept in good shape. Bought it from a guy that had a bus fleet for pool equipment/chemicals and was just upgrading his fleet. Got it for $6000, and that seems pretty reasonable given the condition its in and the work that's been done. More pics to follow tomorrow when the sun is back out.

Let the games begin!

Nice bus, man.

Keep the coolant in 100% perfect order and it should last a long time.

A couple interior pics. Most of the seats are out and a metal cage is installed. Bought it from a pool company that used it as a chemical barrel hauler. There is some rust on and around the stairwells but its pretty rust free overall. 20180419_183233.jpg20180419_183243.jpg20180419_183253_HDR.jpg20180419_183306.jpg

Little update, the rest of the bolts have been ground off, and the last two seat wall things have been taken out. Next up: wheelchair lift!

You need the wheel chair lift to load dirt bikes with.

no pics, but the strips of metal between the walls and ceilings that have the speakers and lights have come out. I also managed to take out three ceiling panels. I also should probably mention i still need to remove the seat belt floor tracks, so if anyone has any suggestions to make my life easier, i would love it.

so much to do!

Unfortunately, there are few shortcuts at this stage. You just have to do it, panel by panel. If you have three out then move on to the fourth and don't think about how many are left. One at a time until they are done. I had fifteen to remove.

The good news is two-fold. Firstly, you only have to do this once and secondly, right now you aren't spending much money, it's all your work.

All cieling panels but one (the one above the drivers seat) have been removed. Insulation is out (old pic). The air door equipment is attached to the ceiling panel above the drivers area, so how is that usually dealt with?20180519_073746.jpeg
