    I mean, if you see below a North American bus, there were "facelifts", but it is rather rare.

    Structural integrity: 0. I imagine it'll flex and twist like crazy if the chassis is not strengthened lol

    Here are 2 photos of the modern bus dashboard/gauge cluster I’ve been working on for the bus. Please note this is WIP and not final.

    Is this based more on European busses, then?

    Or equally both? I'm intrigued at what your point of reference is :)

    Also, not to pry, but are the headlights done from scratch, or ported from something else? They look very familiar, but I can't put my finger on what.

    I see that, but the big Wentward badge threw me off a bit, the ones in my area aren't branded at all (probably the transit company removing them).

    Yeah prob, the majority of buses that are modern usually have a large badge in the front. Thus is why he decided to have WENTWARD on the front.

    This is what I remember, you see SEPTA (I'm from the Philly area), not any brand badge, which is part of what made me think it was European.

    Due to this just being a facelift, I would expect you to be able to use Arcanox's hybrid bus mod.

    Yeah, it's a mix between New Flyer buses and the European Iveco Urbanway since I wanted to give it a small european touch.

    For the headlights, I made them all by myself in Blender :D

    This mod also need another mod to work, I don't want to stacking mods and mods to make mine work.

    Well, since you are only changing the bus' body, powertrain mods should not be a problem
