Hi everyone, I have been watching this page for a few months, trying to get idea's and plans together for my first bus conversion. Well, I've done it, I just bought a 1990 Thomas International 71 pass with a 5 speed and 7.3 IDI Engine. I went with this because I like the ease of working on a dognose bus, from what I have read, the 7.3 IDI has available parts and is fairly easy to work on. It might be a little underpowered but I'm no racecar driver anyway and I like that it has a 5 speed manual transmission. Oh, and it already has the seats removed. Well, I look forward to hearing from you all as you have been a great inspiration to me. Thanks...

I'm guessing you're going to insulate the begeebees out of your bus.
