Hello From Michigan
So been interested for a while. Mainly on reddit but I figured I'd move to a more active place. Looking to either do a shuttle bus or a at most 8 window school bus. Plan on saving and waiting for one to come on auction in Arizona or any other super dry place of the like so I can avoid the rust problem. Take a train to get it and come back home with it. Would love some bigger tires but know nothing about how that'd effect it. The plan for the inside would be spray foam insulation, setting up a full time living space, and once everything's completed building wise I'd love to save for a complete engine and transmission rebuild to put it like it was at new. Lots I hope to learn from everyone here. Oh and also, the name of the bus would be Navi like from The Legend of Zelda. Bus will most likely be painted the same colors too.
Also if anyone is in the Lansing, MI area and has a completed bus, I'd LOVE to take a look at it in person. Seeing something on YouTube is hella different than in person. Would really help give a sense of living and understanding.
