EastCoastCB nailed it. Excellent version of the song, I do like bluegrass.
The orginal version by the Grateful Dead is excellent as well.

Wife using the angle grinder, see the new and improved safety gear, no more metal in our eyes. I highly recommend at least a face shield when grinding. you only have one set of eyes and they can not be replaced.

If anyone needs further convincing regarding eye safety...give me a call sometime and I'll give you all the details about the time I had to cut a piece of steel out of my own eye with an Xacto knife.

I think it took 2 or three days working after our 9-5's to get most of the seats out.

Finally got the seats outs, and put them on my buddies trailer for disposal. He did take a couple and we gave some away to friends.

It took two intense day after our 9-5's to remove the rubber flooring, not much rust on this bus. We tried a hammer and chisel the first day and killed ourselfs to get 1/4 of it done. The best tool was a floor scraper made of metal about 3.5 ft tall and 6-8 wide, it took us a couple of hours and really kicked our butts. but the floor is out

I worked in a steel fabrication shop for more than a decade and this is something one learns quickly!
Keep up the good work, yall. You got a great bus there.
I guess Thomas glues the rubber down.
Mine was only held down by the aluminum trim strips.

Got some Ospho?

we took a weekend off to pick up a generator for the bus, man is that thing heavy. Could have got another bus for the price of it, LOL. the unit only has 750 hours on it, and ran great. Nice and quiet under 1/2 load. It also came with the fuel tanks.
