super short bus is headed to fresno this week, sometime.
on my bus, the next thing is to get the front end on, i need to drop it down on the bus and add another filler panel.
then to get my drivers seat all done, and get it running.

ive got 2 dt466's one in the 01 SD, and one in the bus.
ive also got a DT360 that i just may put in the 87 6 door should this engine fail.
