1) 49 seater with armrests
2) seperation between driver & passenger cabin
3) 8 JBL speakers + LCD TV provided by me
4) ABS made interiors which include side walls, luggage compartment & top
5) ABS made driver dashboard
6) metallic painting with graphics
Congrats Raj, We're eagerly waiting for the complete pictures of your buses including Exterior + Interiors! Has the ICEing (or I should say IBEing :biggrin:) work etc done?

Drive Safe,

Thanks buddy. Even i want to post the pics, but i have given the application for a broadband connection here and its not yet installed. I am going to mumbai on 30th and will post the pics that day itself.

About the IBE'ing-
The bus has:
* 8 JBL speakers
* 5.1 Philips DVD player with USB compatibility
* 26" LCD TV
* Ahuja amp (i wanted to install JBL but sadly could not)
* a cordless Mic for announcements
* and a ARGEE inverter to run all these!

So the bus plays CD/VCD/DVD/USB/Mic and even casette!

Beat me on this ICE LOVERS, especially Ramie! lol...

wow. The IBEing specs look good. How much more time will we have to wait to see your new vehicle.
2 more days. Sorry for the delay.

Great Raj.

I am eagerly waiting for the pics.

Why not add Amps & Cross Overs ?? :)
Amps added.
Cross overs? In a bus? Wont make sense as even the speakers are wierdly placed.

Sure, if i need and its available, i will hire[:)].

waiting for more pictures and report.
Sure, everything will be added soon.

Some more info on the buses-

1) the instrument console has a speedometer, an ammeter, two air pressure gauges & a fuel meter. warning lights consists of the turn indicator signals & high beam signal. there is also one red light which glows slightly when you lift of the throttle & goes away as you rev the bus.

2) it no longer has the push button type starter. you twist the key to start the bus like in any car!

3) the air pressure gauges shows the air pressure in both the air tanks for front & rear air brakes respectively. it reads from 0 to 10. for the brakes to apply, the pressure must be above 6 atleast. when the bus has been lying idle for long, the pressure drops to below 2 & the bus has to be revved to fill air in both the tanks. this is a 5 min procedure every morning! AL has provided a warning buzzer as a safety feature & it remains on till the needle goes above 6psi. it also remains on if the handbrake is engaged. another important thing to note is that one should not pump the brakes in a stationary bus, the air pressure will fall.

4) the steering wheel is aligned a bit to the left with the seat. the power steering is very light & the bus can be steered easily.

5) the seat has seat height/tilt adjust & slides on rails too. the seats have seatbelts too.

6) gear shifts are a bit hard & take time getting used to. the bus has a 5 speed synchromesh gearbox. the first gear is called as load gear & is used only with full load on steep inclines otherwise the second gear is used to start the vehicle.
