    Rick, since you posted yours, I will post mine. Here are some pics from the newest Premier Party Bus...

    Looks cool. Kinda man cave look Looks a little like the conversion you guys did on Andys bus. Works great for small bus space & groups You going to do a pink one. Dayton is prime for one like we talked about last year

    Nope, Covey is building a Pink bus right now, so I will not do a Pink one. I don't see where this one looks anything like the Cantina (Andy's bus), I see this one as being a mix between the Wave and the Palace bus, with a jagged twist.

    It looks a little southwest style right now but that will all change once everything is covered and the wood is not shown.

    Current plans are that the "pole" will be mounted in the middle where the wider section is on the ceiling. The rear has a 9" monitor with a built-in DVD player which will run the DVD on the front 32" LED-LCD TV also. This bus also has 3 lasers inside (one in each side of the front walls and 1 in the rear center of the back window). There will be a switch for the clients to activate/de-activate) if they don't like it.

    The front divider wall is not flat or straight, I built it on an angle to accent the jagged design. There isn't much in this bus with straight lines.

    This week I will start tearing it back down for covering and running the wires for everything.

    You might want to check. Andy ran into problem getting his bus recertified to add more seats. Insurance told him a bus Manufacturer had to recertifie his bus to add more seats than the manufacture built it to hold. Since your two new ones are 14 you might have the same trouble to be able to run legal. Just a thought before you get to deep into the build

    Andy's bus was built with 20+ seats so he should not have any problems.

    I have spoken to the upper powers, it should not be a problem. If they do decide on inspection that this is a problem, I simply remove the rear seats (already have a cool plan for something else there). It really does not matter to me since my buses may all be for sale shortly. I may not even go through inspection with these two before they are sold.

    I have tossed the idea around about selling all buses and purchasing a second limousine. Then just build a bus now and then to re-sell and stay out of the bus rental world. More vehicles on the road is a pain in the booty, I think two limousines would be just fine.

    Really Digger, sell ALL the buses? More buses does mean more headaches but it also means more $$$!!!!

    Please explain, as stretch limo operators with only 2 busses we see it just the opposite
