2002 Ford e450 Shuttlebus conversion Mobile hair salon

Hey guys.
Just joined the form so hi everybody.

3 years ago my wife and I started to work on a conversion of a 2002 Ford E450 shuttle bus to a mobile hair salon. The bus we chose was a natural gas operated which was a bad idea since in Austin there’s only 3 stations downtown and we are 18 miles from the nearest one 🙄🔫
We got screwed over by many contractors and where are right now is there’s much to fix on the bus. Anybody knows of a good reliable mechanic to work on this project in the Austin Texas area. I need to add another AC unit to the bus also several mechanical and technical problems

For mechanics, try your local Ford dealer. I've tried a few local shops and it always seemed that I was telling them how to fix my E-450. The Ford mechanics (should) know how to service your rig.

You'll probably need to set up a generator powered air conditioning unit unless you're willing to idle the engine to run your existing AC unit when parked.
