Hi everyone:
I have been hanging around here for awhile, doing alot of reading and learning alot about school bus conversion. I thought it was time to show everyone here what I have been up to while I was lurking in the shadows. There are more pics if anyone is intrested but dial-up is soooo slow I can only post a couple at a time.

Re: Moose mobile

No we never thought about the paint job being the same as a military but we did think about the similarities between the colors on our bus and the Game warden paint jobs
Better than the prison bus grey we talked about first.

Re: Moose mobile

Nice Bus, a few more pictures would be nice too, specially from the inside. What did you do to it?

It would help with your dial up connection if you would resize the pictures. 640x480 is big enough to post here and the resolution could be brought down so that each picture only has about 45kb compared to the 240kb you got now.

Re: Moose mobile

Go to http://www.photobucket.com. Create a free account and you can upload TONS of pictures. If they're too big, it will resize for you. Then, just copy the [IMG] code and paste it here. It will show up at just the right size! It's super easy one you figure it out.

Re: Moose mobile

Here is the a couple of the range hood with the upper cupboard that I just finished....of coarse you have to vent the range hood to the outside
