Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

I wonder what kind of rust I will find, since we have the same bus. When I finish re-skinning the window,s I get to tackle the floor next.

Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

Is that a 50 gallon drum? I was going to use 50 gal myself, but opted for 30 gal drums instead. I'm hanging mine underneath, and the 50 gal drum was going to hang pretty low, and so I was concerned about ground clearance.

It is, it does fit nicely under my bus for whatever reason actually. Yay.

We seem to have good ground clearance under our buses. I can sit upright with room above my head. The skirting comes down low.

Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

Perhaps I'm just more paranoid than y'all about ground clearance issues. As I remember, the 50gal drum hung down to about 8"-10" from the ground on my bus. It was almost as low as the entry door. Since I will be putting these drums behind the rear wheels, I just didn't want to risk having them bottom out while coming out of a parking lot or something like that. I can also sit under my bus with some room over my head.
