That is the truth! Working on getting my ceiling down as well, it sure is a good feeling though once you get all the screws off on a panel. Keep up the great work!

Good job so far!

Get those panels down, toss the single pane school windows, and throw up at least 3 inches of insulation all around after you do a roof raise, you'll be amazed at how easy it is to heat and cool your giant steel box.

Where did you find this beauty? What auction; what school system? That is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. The belly storage is a nice bonus, too.

Cityratt and I got our buses in the same auction at publicsurplus.com these buses were auctioned by the Arlington WA school district, they had 5 or 6 of the same model up for auction.

Well after about 900 screws I've gotten the majority of the ceiling panels down.

Good job.

The demo is nasty, but well worth it.
