All in a day's work!
This morning at 8 AM, we started out with a plain, old school bus. 24 seats.
We started off ratcheting them by hand... yikes! Fortunately, we had a family member bring over his impact gun. It made quick work of the seats. We had 0 rusty bolts to deal with.
We didn't forget to stop and have some fun with the toys we found in the seats too! Fortunately, I didn't chew any of the old bubblegum.
By noon, we had the seats out and took a pizza break!
The flooring was a bit tougher than the seats! What a mess. The wood was rotted and still wet
We offered another family member all the seats for scrap if he hauled off all the garbage too. He insisted on taking it all in one trip and, to our surprise, did so with no problems
This scared the hell out of me, but he insisted he had hauled worse with his truck (He scraps metal often). It was only a couple miles to the scrapyard.
By 5 PM, we were all cleaned up, flooring removed, and swept out. Just in time for my partner to come home from work! We left the entry bit of flooring in for the time being, because the wood and rubber was in great shape. 9 hours of hard work, but we got it all done!
Just before nightfall, we drove it to it's temporary parking spot for the next 9 weeks. We will work on it in a couple different locations. The driveway location from above (complete with a nicely outfitted woodshop in the back), and this spot here.
