Hey there guys, I'm super excited to have just purchased a 81 International. I'd thought about it for sometime and I figured hey I'm 26yrs old, why the hell not. I'm currently starting from scratch with researching just how I should proceed with building out my bus. It's a manual transmission which posed some challenges at first, luckily I rode motorcycles so the clutch and shifting business wasn't a completely foreign concept. It's a real rust job to be honest, and I see myself putting a lot of work into the bus in that regard!
Didn't know I apparently need a CDL to operate the monster, but I'm not one to shy away from a challenge. I don't plan to do a bunch of driving with this bus, but I would like it to be a nice chill spot for friends and maybe an Airbnb on occasion.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and I look forward to getting to know some of you guys and gals to see what your projects are and how they're developing.
