Thanks, y'all... A question for any of you that have cut holes in the floor pan or body of your bus: did you just use a regular hole saw, jig saw, or some specialized bit?

I've cut a bunch of holes in just about every part of my bus and have used a variety of tools.

My favorite is probably a 4-1/2" angle grinder with a thin cutting disk.

Also bought a 7-1/2" steel cutting blade for my circular saw. Used it at a critical depth setting to remove body panels without affecting the ribs.

Then there is an air powered Body Saw. Great little tool that I often use in conjunction with the grinder to finish squaring corners.
