2 hrs later and I got the rust wire wheeled, boy what a mess. After I cleaned the bus, I put down the OSPHO. Glad that is all over with.

Critize if you wish but I didn't dare tear the floor down to the metal. Too much time and $$$$ to fix all the issues I'm SURE are down there. I put the thin foam underlayment under the snap-together flooring and pretended like none of the rest was down there and all was well

OH, that wire wheeling is a miserable job. I wasn't going to do mine but I couldn't stand it. I was drawn to it like a moth to flame; I had too. I couldn't bear the thought of NOT doing it.
I think its like a "right of passage" or something cruel and sinister like that

Porkchop did it to his bus and I didn't want a 19 year old to show me up.

Hey gusbus, it was way easier than getting the rubber up.

Re: The Journey Visvi 1999 Thomas MVP ER

Good on you bamper for sticking to your principles on that one. I was going to do it too but the plywood was in such rough shape I succumbed to the task and, alas, went all the way with it. My first mistake was tearing up the rubber
Should not have gone even that far
You know the old saying, " If you don't want to know what's in the trash can, don't open the lid!"
