Hi All

Hi Everyone - I am officially in for a penny in for a pound. Bought a 1991 International 3/4 school bus with a Thomas body. In the shop now getting the engine pulled apart and cleaned up. Diagnosis thus far, engine good, needs lots of TLC. Since the price was $1500 I planned to spend a bit to get her up and running. This is my retirement plan - turning it into a mobile studio/tinyhouse.

First question...anyone know where I can get some replacement windows (schoolbus style) or any suggestions on changing out for RV windows? I bought it at auction and apparently someone was pretty mad they didn't get it and made sure to smash 4 of the windows before I picked it up.

Sure glad I found this forum! - Pam

Welcome. if you bought it on auction and the photos didn't show damaged windows, I think that they should have replaced them before you drove it off the lot. surf craigslist and similar sites. I have seen windows on there before. also, members near you may be removing windows and could gift you some (for little or no cost).
