I'm after the rubber seal that goes in between the two when they close. I'm not looking to make one door. The old seal is coming apart at the bottom so just want to replace it.

Understood.
I'm just telling you how some other people solved the problem after not being able to get the replacement items they wanted to make their door seal better.

Also on the front door its a two piece door. were can a guy go to get a new seal for the center of the two when they close together?
Very nice and clean slate!
I'm also interested in how everyone attaches seat belts to available seat/chairs/sofas/etc...my bus will only have a loveseat style couch, so not much seating, so my idea was to either bolt through the floor, extend with strap, attach belt, pass from underneath and through couch fabric.

I'm also considering bolting down the couch as firmly as possible, then attach the seatbelts directly onto it. That might be easier, but might be not as safe as my option#1.

What has anyone else done, so far?

most often seat belts are anchored through the floor and underneath you use a Seat belt washer.. its a large and heavy washer.. you want the belts anchored securely and not just to the seat itself...

I thought that might be the way. I figured I'd buy the whole seat belt assembly but now I know to look for the washer.

Thank you

I hope you you understand that there was no attitude behind my comment just poor choice in wording in the reply. Sorry if thats how it was taken.
I never thought about doing that with the door. I will keep that in mind if I am unlucky to find what I'm looking for.
Thanks again.

I wasn't offended at all. Advice is worth what you pay for it. Everybody here has an opinion and what matters is your opinion.

The individuals that did that modification I spoke of simply weren't able to find replacement parts for their bus doors, then couldn't find a replacement door with adequate windows. Other people don't feel that they need that much glass or a metal door to deal with because of the insulation properties. Also, the two door pieces affixed together were reported to make one heavy damn door, but they both said it worked nice when finished. This was just something I read on an old thread.
