hey guys, only had about an hour and a half to do stuff today and only got the chairs on the engine cover and 2 additional chairs out.. i wont have another chance until monday, lucky for me i have a lot of time Monday and the chairs were much easier than expected.
having only seen videos on youtube of pairs of folks getting the chairs out i was a little worried about doing it myself and thought i'd have to recruit some help but figured out a way to get them done in less than 10 min per chair.
i went the axle grinder route, chopped off the heads and then grinded them down until i could punch the rest of the bolt out with a punch and hammer
after that all i need was a 12mm wrench to take off the bolts that held the chair to the side of the bus. was expecting this to be much harder but going this route was super simple. most of you have already gone through this but i couldnt find much in regards to youtube (my go to for diy) so ill probably post something later for those needing to take this on themselves.
will get the rest of the chairs out monday then onto floor removal... siding, the roof and old insulation... its all coming out. we'll see how far i get monday.. really hoping to have at least the chairs and floors out.
last thing, i only had these safety items around
seemed to be fine enough but i will be upgrading to a respirator as the little mask seemed somewhat useless... anyway, not much in regards to fumes but there was a ton of debris flying around.
