The Story Begins - A long long time ago

So I have officially purchased my first skoolie.

https://ibb.co/PYgSmn2

Here are the specs:

2005 Freightliner Thomas
Miles: 144K
Engline C7 CAT
City: Colorado Springs

I fell in love with this bus first time I saw it. It has RV style windows, 3 outer compartments (Air compressor, Battery, and fuse box). Garage in the back is very roomy.

So a bit of a time skip, I got the seats removed, the underside of the bus was coated in the dark goo (protective covering). If you look in the back of the bus there is a very long bench. Under the cushioning its actually straight METAL...

What I really wanted to do was remove that medal seat...but now I am thinking of leaving it and adding my bed to it seeing as it is straight solid metal. The garage of the bus is closed off via a metal wall. Kinda limits what I can store under the bed...
