Not your average shuttle bus

New to the forum and skoolie community. Just bought my bus on January 2nd of this year.

Iíve done the entire build solo so far and wanted to get some opinions. Still a long way to go till itís done but itís getting there. So, let me know what you think!

Very nice-looking conversion. If you convert your pics to PNG format (and make sure they're rotated correctly in your picture editing program) before posting, they will be oriented correctly here. Unless you like making peoples' necks hurt.

You've only had the bus since January 2nd of this year? I think this is a crazy amount of progress, it looks so beautiful.

Thanks guys. It’s been a long few months, just trying to get it done before the weather gets good!

I’ll be sure to format the pictures right next time

beautiful interior, good job! I have a similar bus. 2005 e450 based. Its going to be a food truck, so my interior will be quite different. But, I am interested in propane and water tank placement. Also, on celling sides where the seat lights and air vents are. is there a procedure for properly removing? One more thing, from the inside it looks like you replaced the door opposite the drivers seat. was it originally a bi-fold door?

thanks

I didnít replace any doors, mine is set up identical to yours. As far as wiring I removed everything that was unneeded all the way back to the fuse box. I didnít have any kind of vents to deal with, but added my own when I put in a dometic furnace.

Obviously not finished yet, I went with a camplux on demand propane water heater
