Re: ...BLUNDERBUS...

Here's a great find...

More cleaning (although it has halted until the floor is done)

Hopefully the worst of all the rust

Back half of the floor all pulled up

Re: ...BLUNDERBUS...

smitty i found that first aid kit at my work just a small coincidence.... for 4 years i walked past it never really seeing it
the flange will be cut and replaced with angle iron then patches (big ones) put in to close the gap

I noticed that, too...Hmm-m-m...Perhaps our Fire Troupe Bus Captain tripped with the fire?

What's the skivvy there, CheezyP? Inquiring minds want to know!

...and Smitty's right, get underneath and check & repair as needed - that's what yer building on.

Re: ...BLUNDERBUS...

Mine came with two first aid kits loaded full from the factory still. Never opened as far as I could tell. Also had the triangles in mine too. I am keeping em all but putting them in the storage room to keep the front metal above the window clean looking. keep em around man. that gauze works great. i had to use some already. 25 years and they never touch it. i have the thing 2 months and i am. not fun. haha.

Re: ...BLUNDERBUS...

So some late night working going on (and only one nail in the foot and a few cuts to show for it)...got the rest of the rubber and rotted plywood flooring up. Turn out the rust was worse in the middle than in the back (and not so coincidentally below the shower and toilet's former location). On the other hand today we had scrubbed the floor with a wire brush on a stick and one on the drill and then coated it with purple power rust stop. It worked great, especially after two coats.




A little dark but the view from the front (disrupted by our saved wood bridge)


So much for avoiding a northern bus to skip out on rust, she's a salty sea bitch for sure.
