Is this the blue bus from BioCare USA from Lansing, MI? The one with the front door and a side door?

Hi Chris. I'm Dale. Paul is Dreamscape. There are a lot of us to learn here! haha.. Glad to have you among us.

That is a nice bus. I've got a lot of pictures that Tina sent me and I talked to Bob about it. It was out of range for me, both price and geographically, but I told them I would help them get the word out. As a matter of fact, here is the ad I listed for it in The Mall.

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1550&p=12060

You probably have the same pictures or better, but just in case you don't... I know I like to get as many old pictures as I can of things I buy.

Glad someone got here that ones to fix her up. Looking forward to more pictures as you progress.

HAPPY TURKEY everybody!!!!

well thanks for the replies and here is quick update on our 15 project

we have the bus in our shop and have removed the siding from the rear of the first bay to the front on both sides, both the siding and the skin below the windows is off and the framing was badly rusted in front and behind the torsion mounts, and of course the wheel opening framing was almost gone and the floor is removed also to give better access to the frame tubes.
I have the sill tubes replaced and one wheel opening done we should have the other wheel opening finished Saturday then on to the bulkheads and framing the original entry door closed the bus has a center entry door so no need for the original door any longer

I still need to find the curved frame tubing used on the front of the bus above the bumper i think making that radius is above my pay grade so if you know where to locate these parts let me know

that's all for now

Sounds like ya'll are well on your way! Don't forget to take lots of pictures as you go. Your Project thread here serves two purposes. It gives you a good visual history of your bus, plus it can serve as an educational tool for those who come later who might be facing the same issues. I can't wait to see you get it all back together and coming rolling into a rally one of these days.

Looking good, Chris. It has to be tough to take apart an Eagle that was looking so good. But you know it will be better in the long run.
