My thread disappeared

Hello:
Yesterday I started a thread about lower wall removal in the "Everything Else | General Skoolie Discussions" forum section and the thread even had some replies posted, now the thread seems to have disappeared. I've tried several searches without any success. Any idea of what happened?

I LOVE tearing stuff out of buses, but the chair rail is one part to leave be.

Wow... Deja vu man.
The same two members reply to this thread as replied to my missing thread - in the same
order. Now what happens, does this thread disappear?

Thanks, Rusty, I got that the first time and I won't be taking them out... I promise.

Thanks, EastCoastCB, while I don't share your enthusiasm for take stuff out of buses ( i'd
prefer to be putting stuff in, at this point anyway ), I swear I'll leave the chair rail alone.

Thanks guys.

Now, does anyone know what happened to my missing thread?

Yesterday I wrote a reply to your thread, but when I clicked Submit, the thread had vanished. It'll really put the icing on the cake if that happens again, though if it does, you won't be reading this..

Past contributor nat_ster made a drawing showing how several pieces of the bus body typically go together. It's included in this thread, among others. In a nutshell: that chair rail wall is the only thing holding the walls and roof to the floor.

That's excellent, they should make a sticky of that diagram and explanation. I'm glad I
stopped "Rivet Removal Mania" to ask about the chair rails - would have been a pretty
big "Opps-F**K" if I hadn't.

Thanks

I ran some eye bolts through the seat mount holes in my chair rail and use them as tie points for securing everything in my bus.

If someone can recapture that diagram and post it so that it's hosted natively (by this forum) that'd be good. I'm getting the ever-popular "please upgrade your photobucket account".
