I took the bus to the truck stop for a re-weigh after gutting it. It shed 2,800 lbs to a trim 20,504 lbs with a full tank of fuel. The sheet metal from the ceiling and walls weighed 300lbs at the local scrap yard. It was worth a whole six dollars but getting it out of my way in the shop ... priceless.

I would be interested in a couple pairs of your seats. What do you want for them?

I was thinking $50 a set would be reasonable. They are in good condition.

Stairs

More progress today! I pulled the covering and plywood off the stairs. I'm glad I did as there was some surface rust. I'm not going to mess with the drivers platform. The edges of the plywood look new. I doubt much water got under it since it sits higher than the surrounding floor and the driver isn't in and out as much as passengers. I will put enough xps insulation on and at the top of the stairs to match my floor height and then see if a can get a one piece stair cover bent from aluminum diamond plate. I'll also use aluminum for the sides of the stairwell.

I was happy to see they are in decent shape. Just a little surface rust in spots. I'll hit them with a wire wheel and paint them. Then they should be good to go.
