Hey all! I've been lurking through these forums for years and when I stumbled across a 1996 Gillig Phantom near me, I just couldn't resist!
$3000 later, I drove this bad boy back to my house and began the process of seat removal, cleaning etc.
I'm incredibly excited to convert this bad boy into a second home on wheels!
The bus was a city transit bus and it was the last of this model that they had in the fleet. So... they decided to throw on ALL of the remaining spare parts, manuals, etc they had for their Phantom fleet onto my bus! It runs excellent, has all of it's maintenance records, and is in fantastic shape!
I'm a pretty handy guy, but I know very little about these busses and, while I can't wait to learn everything, I'm gonna need a TON of help getting it all sorted out.
Hopefully there will be some patient, generous folk around here willing to help me get my project sorted!
