I hope you fellows do not mind a guy hanging out here that did not build his own conversion,I been lurking around for a year and find this board very helpful even with a factory conversion.                   

thank you David

David;
Welcome to this crazy world of bus nuts.  I bought my MCI 7 already converted and have learned a lot on this board.  Have also received a lot of help.

welcome to the group.  i bought my bus done but needing a few items.  i find i can wear out my frustrations tightening things up like today torquing the nuts down to 300 in/lbs all around.  since i'm (obviously) not a mechanic, this is sort of fun, and lots of help from the real busnuts.

pp, you weren't supposed to pick on BK like that " BK especially likes pictures, he stumbles alot with words".  and let people know about his reading.  you should have just shortened your post like this " BK especially likes pictures, he stumbles alot."   :D :D

Welcome, I bought my coach completed, to the P/O style, I've done many changes to make it ours. You'll do the same, it's the many hours of modifications that make the difference. I've done a few ground up car restorations and didn't have the desire to start such a big project, I really admire the ones that do their own conversions. They have a great talent and are an inspiration.

Welcome VanTare!

Is it nice to have a keyboard and internet to learn and share about anything!

There are many lookers click that on this MAK board are without a bus or conversion or motorhome.

You have just started the first step.

Hope we can help you anyway we can to get you into a conversion of your choice.

Rumor has it that they are very close to a cure, at least I hear that some of the new meds do seem to help. lol
