Yes, the jacuzzi is much bigger than the 36" rear door. It's actually 93 inches wide, which made for quite a problem.....The bus has an inside width of only 90 inches. Each wall of the bus is nearly 2 inches thick however. I had to modify the walls of the bus to accomidate the extra width of the jacuzzi.
Back to the original question....how did i get the jacazzi in the bus??
First i attended a fire department sponsored vehicle extrication class on schoolbus'. I knew i had to cut a hole in the bus large enough for a the hot tub. Where to cut the hole?? cieling? side? or the rear? I decided this class would be an excellent way to discover the anatamy of a bus, and therefore be able to decide where to make the incision.
I decided that the best place to make my cut was through the wall. i made the cut on the passenger side. 39" tall, and approximately 9 feet long.
The hot tub was such a tight fit, that i coulndn't put the windows back in place, so i manufactured a set of doors that open by remote keyless entry in place of the windows.
