Yea I know I have been bugging everyone on this board with many questions, looking for advice and ideas.  You all have been very helpful and I know how much I like seeing videos of other peoples projects, so I figured someone might enjoy watching what had been going on with my mc9 conversion.  My son put together a couple of videos to share, hope you enjoy.

It looks like it is going to be an awesome bus project! Congrats!

You could probably get a bunch of money for your project by selling all those old vehicles you have parked around there. Just a thought... Grin

Hay Doc that's my 401K your looking at Grin LOL  Actually a few of them belong to my son, guess I was a bad influence. Yes I am a strong believer in sweat equity.  The better ones are locked up in the garage and the ones you can see are waiting there turn in line, if I live long enough.  Better than money in the bank in today's market.

Truth be known Jerry, I don't get out much, haven't for a long time.  I am hoping this bus will get me on the street and out of town.  I would love to get it finished and travel up route 1 in Maine. I have been as far north as Camden, but I would really like to go up to Eastport just taking my time and enjoying the trip and everything there is to see.

Kinda of impressive that you and your Dad are working together on this, It's nice when your kids want to be around you and actually take an interest in the project (and don't think you are the crazy bus man in the neighborhood) enjoy working with your Dad!  One job at a time!

I have some new video updates to add and thought it would be a good idea to bump the first one up in case someone missed it, or would like a refresher on where I am at.  The new videos will be posted in a new thread. Look for Bus conversion update #2

I always say a thankful prayer in Arizona Greyhound's direction when I'm working on my 1972 Seven. Granted it has it's corrosion issues also but nothing like a northern bus. Great vid and looking forwards to more....
