I bought a bus!

Hello!
I just bought a 2003 Thomas Saf-t-liner hdx! It’s equipped with a 3126 cat and the Allison transmission! Air brakes, and air ride. I’m in southern Indiana. Feel free to say hello or drop any advice!

Congratulations on the bus! It looks nice. I'm a little jealous of the shop its parked in. Is that the bus barn or your shop?

I am developing a serious case of "shop envy"!


What a great setup to work on your conversion.

Congrats! Nice looking bus! I brought mine home a couple of weeks ago and am having a ton of fun with the project. Like you, I am blessed to have a large, warm, dry space to work in! 👍🏼
