Lacroix Cruiser bus build

Been following a coach build called the Lacroix Cruiser on youtube and wanted to share it on here. Its their third bus conversion and its turning out very nice. They purchased a bus in April of 2020 in the USA and returned to Canada to do the build. I attached two links, first one being the purchase/initial tour of the bus and the second one is some finishing up and a nice tour of the bus. They have documented the build in 60 episodes over the last 18 months. In episode 61 the actual tour starts at 25:20 if you want to skip to that spot in the video. Enjoy!

We love Yvan and Silvie...and their work is very detailed and high quality. I sent Yvan some embossed aluminum panels, which we had removed from some bus seat backs, and he's using those for some part of his dash. So, in a way, part of us will be part of their bus.

I have met Yvan and Silvie a few years ago at one of the bus gatherings. He still had the old GMC at that time . Great people and very skilled.
