I can read it much easier now, I'll say that.
I watched your youtube vid, and I don't notice anything that sounds ominous. Just bus sounds if you ask me.

Remove the floor?

Like most of the newbies here I asked why all of the insistence on taking up the floor, well I discovered how important it is, unless your lucky enough to have a bus from Cali or Arizona, you probably want to have a look at whats underneath,

This is what you will find under a Northeast bus's floor

Yup- doing it the easy way is always going to leave the nasty stuff hidden.
The worst of mine is under the roof around the cracked and leaky emergency hatches.
Ospho and a wire wheel are your friend. Keep up the good work!

Thank you CB, I looked into Corroseal which recommends application at 45 degrees and above but the Ospho allows down to 36 degrees, which is a help here, I'll have to wait till the end of the week but the temps will rise a little by then. I like the description of the Ospho better too

I use ospho then Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer. Then a topcoat.
I'm planning to apply undercoating to the wheel wells both topside and below to help with some noise.
