There's more of that behind the walls below the windows you haven't cut out yet..........

Hey CityRatt

Since you have the same model as mine:

There is a door handle on the front of the bus right below the driver's side window. What is that for? Mine might be broken, but it just spins in place, doesn't seem to open, close or lock anything.

Thanks.

Ach! I keep failing to get out the screws where I have stripped the heads. I couldn't use the angle grinder on them the last two weekends, it was pouring rain and I didn't want to use the extension cord in the wet. When I get a reasonably dry Saturday (which by the forecast won't be this weekend) I'll try cutting slots in them like you did and put a flat blade screwdriver in them.

I wish that handle were for locking the front door, it would sure make my life a little easier if I could secure the door without using the driver opener handle thing.

Got some more work done on the bus over last weekend, getting closer to doing the roof raise.

















this is why you have safety equipment, having one of these blow up on you isn't fun at all

Oh crap, are you having to cut off the wall panels above the chair rail?

Also, did you grind off the rivet on the little metal plate between windows or is there another way to get it off?

Yes, that's the only way to get the side panels off is to cut them off under the window. as far as the metal plate, its held on by a rivet, grab a 1/4 inch drill bit and drill it out, that is by far the easiest way to do it.

Thanks, man!

I look forward to your roof raise. If you make it look easy enough, I might change my mind about not raising mine.
