Hello all! I’m excited to announce that I have officially started on my bus!
April 25, 2021: “The Jar”. Basically I glued the lid on and cut a hole on the top so I wouldn’t open it. And every time I got paid 75% of the money would go in there. It was soooo difficult and there were tons of times I tried to open it. Thankfully after 2 months of saving I was able to save up $365.58 all of which is going towards the bus.
Next up April 26, 2021: Installing two new batteries. We went to the Battery Outlet and the owner Robert gave me an amazing deal. I was able to buy two batteries for a total of $211.89. We installed them, and now the bus starts up beautifully! It’s so nice to be able to start it up without having to jumpstart it. The old batteries were from 2013 and were starting to swell so changing them out really helped.
April 26, 2021: I went to Lowes and with a lot of help I figured out what kind of grinders I needed. I also got gray Rust-Oleum primer paint to cover the cuts we make in the floor (no one will see the paint when it’s done so the color didn’t matter). Total at Lowes: $82.12.
Cutting the seats out has been pretty simple given the fact I haven’t touched the grinder. My dad and boyfriend have been very kind in doing that for me whilst I take out a billion bolts. It’s very time consuming but once the seats are out we can actually get to work more!
Along with taking seats out I’ve also been trying to sell as many as I can. So far I have 5 seats spoken for. I originally wanted to sell each seat for $20 to help offset the price of building but not many people want bus seats (surprise surprise). I have a women buying 3 for $50, a guy buying 1 for $20, and a friend wants to trade for one.
I currently have them listed on Facebook marketplace and eBay please be in prayer that I can get as many sold as I can!
Lastly I need your help…I’m starting a separate blog focused on just my bus so that I can list sponsors there and such. The problem is I don’t know what to name it! So comment your suggestions!
See you all soon ❤
