Still going strong on it, almost completely done with the electrical, then on to paint and body. But not sure about the 2.5ft per window thing in the mini bus bc the front 2 are quite wide and the back 3 aren't as wide. I can measure it tommorow when I go to the shop

Finally got the bus Re-registered as a motor home. It took about half a day total. The lady from the DMV came to inspect it and signed off on all the paperwork and then off to the DMV. The people at the DMV were still not quite sure of what to do so it took a little longer but still went smooth, was able to transfer the old commercial tags over to motorhome tags. Glad that's finally over with.

Hello Thurm2590

That's the first time I've seen someone lock the back door that way. No way is wrong.

The lock is only there for when we're gone and not by the bus, I have no plans of leaving the lock on while we are driving, or around the bus.

Nice metalwork ! Looks stout enough without being overly heavy.

Only think I'd change is make a few of those sharp corners on that angle a bit more friendly. You can set your chop saw to mitre and nip them at a 45 angle, then round w/ a bump from sander.

I like that flooring a lot. Mine has carpet now, but I will change it out.

Haven't seen that approach.
Locks are only for honest folks, anyway. But if they have a hammer, bolt cutters, or even a decent size stone they can easily get past that in seconds.
Not trying to offend anyone, just giving my honest opinion. I've had a LOT of break-ins and theft in my lifetime. Sucks having your stuff ripped off. They got me for nearly ten grand once.

Cool little bus, keep up the good work yall!
