Hello,

This is my SMB currently at Fresno, CA











Vehicle is a Ford 2008 EB 6.0 diesel.

Thank You, daveb for your help.

Looking good! Great color. Was that a repaint or OEM Ford?

Re: Sheriffdoug's Sportsmobile

^^^ agreed. looks like a nice rig! look forward to completed pix. i really like the interior color combo.

im also curious about the exterior color. ive seen 2-3 f350's around here that color and wondered if it was an oem color.

"School Bus Yellow" is a factory Ford color! Or it was on the E-series. Looks like its not a standard color on the F-series or Transit. But Ford also has an "Special Vehicle Order" program where you can have it painted whatever color you want, and even add obscure options, as long as you order at least 5 at a time. That's how SMB was able to do another run of Baja Tan vans.

Van was white when purchased February this year in Missouri. Had it painted at SLC Body Shop, then it went to Advanced 4WD Conversion, both in Salt Lake City.

They're moving fast on it. I like the cabinet color. Looks like the last pic is Randy putting in audio/video or alarm stuff.

Re: Sheriffdoug's Sportsmobile

Nice looking. Is it a 4'' lift conversion?
