First post! International dt466 71 passenger
Hey all! The cold weather has slowed my progress so I think this is a perfect moment to take the time to join the community and introduce myself and my skoolie in process!
I've got a 2004 international with a DT466 engine and a T2000 Allison transmission. It's a wisconsin bus so rust was a concern but all things considered I lucked out. However once the seats came out and the plywood came up I realized that if I wasn't careful I could put a hammer through some of the weaker spots. The weather turned cold before I could finish getting the plywood out and treat and paint the rusty floor.
And that's where I'm at at the moment. I think next I need to winterize the engine for the season somehow. If I luck out with a warm snap I can paint the floors and put in the subflooring and insulation this year still. In the mean time I've been working on a scale model of the layout and researching my options for solar and electrical.
Any feedback about my bus, my build so far, really anything in general so far is very welcome. Any help on this crazy project is a great assistance!
