Gillig conversion in Oregon

I'm not associated with this bus, or the seller, in any way.

Great looking conversion for someone to finish up. Wish it'd had been available when I was searching for mine.

24" tall X 8" wide would be just about ideal, but obviously they wouldn't have to be perfect if they looked good and functioned as I need them to.

If its going to require a lot of rework to get it where you want it, its just not worth it.
