yes, the bottom one is kind of useless now as i have removed the metal plate it goes into. i may replace the plate with a smaller one. im going to get a lock for the side door, its pretty darn secure.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I removed the rear heat exchanger, and promptly enjoyed a refreshing bath of antifreeze there was over 5 gallons of coolant in those hoses. i connected them to each other with a piece of brass pipe, and left the loop inside the console. i also removed lots more useless wires inside the console, cleaned it up, and found a bracelet in there. i also hoked up a stereo from a 2003 Kia to the bus, using the 3 built in bus speakers. it sounds pretty good. i ran the 12 volt ignition sense wire through one of the unused toggle switches on the control console. i also gave away alot of bus seats.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I had a postal jeep as my primary vehicle for a period of time. I loved it, except for the fact that the steering wheel was on the wrong side. That thing was great - real peppy and just a bare-bones solid little tank of a vehicle. Fun to drive!

yes, i love mine, i have made a lot of improvements on my Postal Jeep, all without cutting it up or making it look stupid. Like you said it is a rock solid, bare bones little vehicle. Im not sure what it is about me, i have owned a state patrol cruiser, with push bars cage, the works(they didn't de-police it as good as they should have), postal Jeep, and now a school bus, i guess i have got a thing for used government vehicles

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I agree, once im done laying the rest of the flooring today, im going to pull the wall panels out, and replace the insulation. im dreading the ceiling, being this is a Wayne, and it has only 2 pieces of metal for the entire ceiling. i would like to insulate beneath it then put the steel ceiling back up. i wonder if a person can just do one side at a time?

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

it should have insulation between the ceiling metal panel and the outer roof panel.. like 2-3 inches of fiberglass. if the roof is filled with it, and it were mine, i would just add insulboard attached to the ceiling of the bus, and insualted roof coating out the roof exterior...
taking the inner roof panels out and re installing them will take a lot of time and work.
