1968 Eagle owner

We just got a converted Eagle bus it has been updated with a 8v92 475hp and 1250 lbs of torque also has the a Allison 740 automatic transmission. It needs some cosmetic work but not a lot. I will be painting it because it's black. I would like to know ways to make the bottom shine again. Also I've got to figure out all the bells and whistles this one has 3 ac's 4 heaters and many other options. I would like to see your lay out so I can make some choices. Wallpaper vs paneling hard wood vs carpet. Here are a few pics.

Gary, and crew, at B and B coach works in Las Vegas, will be able to answer any questions you have about an eagle bus, as well as do anything you can imagine to it.

His middle name is Eagle.

Welcome to the converted bus owner club! (I just made that up, so far you and I are the only members).

Google 'bus conversion magazine' and 'busnuts forum', you will find a load of resources. A subscription to the mag, online or print, will enhance your connections.
