Since our last post we have purchased a bus, drove her home and started on demo. Now itís time to start our conversion diary.
About the bus
Won at govdeals for $2471 including sellers? cut
Itís a 76 passenger 1996 International amtran genesis FE 7.6L diesel 4 speed transmission, not exactly sure which one, maybe someone here can inform us? Since being used in Colorado it has salters and retarder, air brakes, air ride seat and, 3 underside storage bins- thatís everything significant I can think of right now.
As mentioned weíve started demo- have all the seats removed, started ripping up the floor and removed all the screws from the interior side panels, figuring out how to remove them is another story. But I have a question, we planned on scrapping the seats but since steel isnít worth anything we thought of another possibility, can the steel tubing from the seats be used as the support/frame for a 1í roof raise? Is it strong enough? Weíd love to reuse it if we can. What are your thoughts?
