Congrats buddy! We are just getting started as well... only a few steps ahead of you. Below are some of our videos of the conversion we've done so far, in case it helps you get your process started. Looking forward to seeing some pics of the process.

Was the 9 liter v8 still being used in 1998?
Maybe its an 88?

I don't envy you at all. My ride home from Seattle was quite comfortable. When I got the second bus and plopped my ass in the seat and it was solid as a rock. I'll never not have an air ride seat in my bus.

So do you plan on changing that seat? I found some decent looking air ride seat on line for under $200..i can understand wanting to keep it original but my butt and back wont be able to do long trips...besides, id need a bra to keep my moobs from bouncing ....bwahahaha

I would love to see a close up picture of the windows that are covered on the lower half. Not from straight on, but from enough above to see how they handled the unevenness. Please!?
