Heater Hook Up.

So I Accidentally Got Rid Of ALL The Heaters In The Bus Including The One In Front By The Door Which Is Used For Defrost. I Took Them Down To The Scrap Yard And They Only Saved One But It Wasn’t The One In Front, It Was The Mid Bus Heater. I Wanna Know If There’s A Way To Hook That One Up To Use As A Defrost/Defog? Or Am I Screwed?

That's quite an accident.............

There are numerous aftermarket heater/defrosters on themarket that you can replace the missing unit with.

See if Caddilac stops by. He can probably point out some specific recommendations.

This is something I was looking at yesterday:

It might be a little small to heat the whole bus, but it should keep your windshield clear.

go back to the scrap yard and find a bus and pull new heaters.. yes you can create some kind of aftermarket klouge.. but nothing heats and defrosts like Bus heaters.. you need the driver console with foot warmer and defroster. and also the right side door heat for the body manufacturer you have... (not the chassis..the body)...

hard to believe they didnt still have the heaters.. they usually get thrown in a pile that sits around for a long time before being smashed and sent away...

I just finished completely restoring my right side heater because OEM heats so much better in my opinion than aftermarket..

the driver console if you have to rebuild it then you might consider building one from scratch that has A/C and heat... but thats fancy.. makes for a nicer ride though..
