    Or, ambulance life? :geek:

    Going to be a big project, needs a lot of work. But it runs well, mechanicals seem to be in good shape. Need to do more research on best upgrades and such and start digging in on repair work. Oh, and registration :gag:

    Excellent! Sweat equity beats a hefty payment every time. Training Vehicle, aye :thumbsup:

    It probably has factory dual batteries and possibly dual alternators. A flat roof you can stand on? I see possibilities there... No windows mitigates potential problems. Perfect base for a dirtbagging proj, have fun building it out.

    And if you leave the emergency lights on, traffic won't be much of a problem. As a bonus you'll be able to pick people up from wrecks to make a few extra bucks.

    One large alternator. 215 amps is pretty damn good though! I've read that they are hard to find, might end up rewinding it if that day comes, or downgrade. I don't use a lot of power, so low stress. Has three small windows in the doors. Side window is sliding with a screen, I plan to replace the other two with the same sliding windows :thumbsup:

    I plan to add rooftop storage at some point, a place to keep some folding chairs :ninja:

    :whistling:

    He just made his bike return last week. He got hurt pretty bad at work a few months ago.
