Welcome fellow Texans. I hope your post catches the eye of Chris. in Fla. I believe he has a similar bus, and may be able to answer questions. Where in West Texas are ya'll? My wife is from Abilene, and we get there as often as we can.

Welcome to another Texan, I look forward to following your build. Hope we can make a huge Texas Skoolie meetup soon, it seems there are quite a few of us.
