I dunno Don ...my grandkids could do that in kindergartens with a box of crayons!  :lol:

Commonly heard refrain from those seeing abstract art.

My response? Encourage the kid to go for it, sign on as their agent, then see if anyone will buy it to fund your retirement.

Since Kevin and his kids are going to have to get up early to take the bus to school they can spend those early hours working on the bus/RV conversion

I drove a RV converted bus on a camping trip once, it was an 80’s or so with I want to say an 8.2L Detroit Diesel.  Non-turbo and slow as molasses in January.  It got just a tickle over 6 mpg with my foot to the floor everywhere we went.  I imagine this’ll get 8+ on the road?

I'd say that's a reasonable expectation, yes.

Unfortunately there is an EGR and MONSTER DPF.  I’ll have to check into industrial engines and delete options, if there ever becomes an issue of course.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

DPF.

Just be sure you can get a sticker after that...

 

Last I heard there were NO vehicles allowed to delete the DEF system.

 

Here in Maine we are told that's a federal thing and we have to follow it. But that said, lots and lots and lots of older trucks have their cats accidentally fall off and not get replaced...

Being a "Turd Herder" may be a crappy job but some ones gotta do it.

I've found that the supply side of plumbing is rather satisfying if you can stand the pressure!       :ychain:
