I've been lurking for a couple months and decided now is as good a time as any for an introduction.
I've always wanted a school bus--blame it on The Partridge Family--and, finally, in early September, I found a shortie in the right place at the right time...and I jumped.
It's a 2003 MicroBird--Blue Bird--built on a Chevy 350 chassis. I believe it's a 6.0 Vortec. It's gas powered, 5 window. (I see tons of posts here about diesels, and very few about gas, so I've been hesitant to post that. Sort of like all the debates about smart phones: you have what you like, and I have what I like; it's not a competition.)
I spent at least a month trying to get insurance (which I finally did, with a commercial policy--until I complete the remodel). I've pulled all the seats and, thanks to some awesome how-to (with an air chisel) videos I found links to on this forum, I'll be removing a boatload of rivets in the interior ceiling and side panels this weekend.
Weather is turning wintery here and I'm looking for somewhere to park her close to work so I can continue the transformation and, hopefully be done and on the road (to wherever) by the end of 2018.
I love seeing everyone's builds and look forward to more inspiration and ideas and sharing my updates as well.
So happy to have found my skoolie...and this community.
