‘THE STILL’ BUS (ig whiskey.wilderness)

Found our bus! This thread will be our build thread and you can also follow on IG or YouTube once we get it up and going.
Got a great deal at RockyMtnBus.com dealership
2001 International - 11 window
T444E w/ Allison 2000 trans
Engine Block Heater, Air Ride Seat, Cruise Control
133,400 miles
Only a touch of surface rust underneath it where some coating of the undercarriage came off, easy fix.
The company we bought it from prides themselves on how clean their buses are and boy they are right to do so. The bus is immaculate!
Wife is Gonna be doing what she calls ‘ Industrial Deco’ Inspired interior on it and will be doing a copper exterior (per the bus name want it to look kind of like a copper whiskey still)
Super excited!
