The beginning of something great..

This is an intro post for me.. Just beginning a skoolie project a year in the making. 1 month ago I bought a beautiful 1994 Ford B700 bus with a diesel sipping cummins 5.9 to turn into a place for me to rest my head at night. The dream became real the night that beast pulled into dry dock for the winter...

I am a handyman with extensive experience in a hodge podge of different areas.. This seems to be a blessing when it comes to projects like this so I am hoping the creative and mechanical will come together to create something unique and most importantly ME. Can't tell you how excited I am for this project.

I have a very flexible timeline for the project and friends to help so it will be whatever our collective minds can come up with, but we will definitely be looking for help along the way.. The project is on instagram under adventur_bus if anyone wants to follow.

Thanks in advance - what a great site!

Welcome. I assume it's full size, what passenger cap? I'll keep an eye out for your build thread.
