Congratulations from us also Nick and Michele, this months feature in the centerfold was a welcome site and knowing the owners personally is a plus. 

Steve, You and Ded will surely enjoy Nick and Michele at the rallys, be sure to bring your Karaoke voice as Nick loves to have fun with everyone in the evenings that you hate to see end. 

Good luck with your new found fame Nick and Michele.  Look forward to seeing you soon.

Nick and Michele,

Great job on a wonderful coach. I am very envious! Wink Tell your wife she did a super job on the article, very well written. I enjoyed reading about the history. The time spent was worth the effort because the outcome was fantasitc.

Happy Trails,

Paul

Nick- that is just plainly a sharp looking bus.  You have a great paint job that you didn't go over board on the design-unlike the unartistic painters doing the excessively busy "full coach" paint jobs you see on most motorhomes these days.
My transit is my first conversion.  And while both my wife and I really like its' design and use capabilities, my next bus conversion that I will probably do in a few years will be hopefully on your level of excellence.  My hat's off to you!  Good Luck, TomC

I haven't seen the magazine yet but I have seen the inside of the bus and it is beautiful.  I have a feeling the pictures don't do it justice.  While it is a beautiful bus, I was even more impressed with the hospitality  we were offered when we were inside it.  Cat

Hey Nick great job on your bus, I also saw it in the magazine it is awesome. Just wondering when you did the aluminum on the sides did you overlap the joints or butt them and seal or bondo between them? Also i did not see rivets on the panels where are they? Can you give me some specs on your heating - A/C system ,I would like to do a basement air if there is one that can keep up. Any help in these areas would be great! Also my wife has kind of the same attitude yours did in the begining but when she sees pictures of busses like yours she starts getting the picture.     thanks in advance for your help       Chris
