The windows on my bus are lined with ????rubber/foam???? strips that seal the windows when closed.

And I'm assuming that they are glued there & not caulked.....am I right?

Those strips are what I would be replacing with new if I was to remove the windows.

Not to much to update on the bus. An unfortunate accident happened the other day that took the wind out of my sails.

We were over working on the bus 3 days ago and were making some progress with getting the wheel chair rail out and deciding to grind of the wall panels off which will be after the rail is out.

While I was busy working on the rails my wife and my friend were taking ceiling panel screws out. Well they had made there way towards the front of the bus so I reminded them they needed to be mindful of what they were doing. Hardly any time passes before I hear smash and followed by "OH SH**" friend wasn't paying attention and let a door cover piece swing and crack my whole right side windshield.

Needless to say I am not a happy camper as my list of items I wanted to complete will need to be placed on hold till this is taken care of. I will have pics of the window tomorrow when I go back to the bus. Was to pissed of to take them at that time lol. However I did upload a new video to YouTube and will be working on getting another one up tonight.

It also isn't the one in front of the driver so you can still work with it until you get to replacing it. Now you friend has a new nick name Crash, or XX>>insert name here <<XX destroyer of windshields.

Got another video up. The ceiling cam down pretty smooth overall. Ive also started removing the wheel chair strips on the floor. Best way as far as I can tell is just to grind them down and pop the rail off.



Haven't looked into the replacement for the windshield yet, however I have started to think considerable hard as to a replacement for the stock bus windows. I now understand why they suck in every way possible. I am hoping to find a replacement window that is the same size so that it should just be a matter of replacing them.
