HAVE HALF SIZE SCHOOL BUS

Postby RoyP » Sun Dec 09, 2012 7:35 pm

I have a half size school bus I'm interested in making into something. Its on a Ford E-450 chasis with a killer 7.3 Diesel Powerstroke engine, running strong. I'm open to ideas/collaborations, etc.

More information may help people. Presumably you're talking about making it into a mutant vehicle? Where are you based? Are you looking for particular skills or materials?
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

I'm giving this a nudge over to the Preparation -> Transportation board, as that's a better fit for brainstorming projects.

It sounds like a great start to a mutant vehicle, if you're so inclined. It'd also make great transportation for your camp (awesome rideshare or loading up with gear). I've also known a few people who've pulled out the seats and turned it into a makeshift RV/mobile living space. Whichever way you take it, could be a great project!

Have you read the school bus conversion thread? It should still be near the top in the Transportation forum.
