So to start off. It’s raining today. And so far so good it’s dry inside. So that’s a big hurdle. I’ll keep checking throughout the day as it rains.
I drove the bus home from Nashville TN to Harriman TN. It’s governed out at 57-60 mph. It went fine down the high way. Till traffic hit so we started down a backroad that took us way out of the way. We turned a 2.5 hr drive into a 4.5 hr drive. It only used a quarter tank of diesel . And it was a little sketchy at first but I think it’s got a better turning radius than my 94 gmc k3500 dually diesel.
I do think I’m going to have to find new front tires. And I wanna jack it up to check the control arms and ect. Any suggestions???
What should I start doing next? Pulling seats and the floor? ???
