Re: amputating the passenger area of a bus?
Hi ya, Just shortened my wanye body bus 8 foot. The sides are continuous. Just marked off where I wanted to cut and took it off with a side grinder w/ a cutting wheel. Left 6" longer tabs below the windows. everything popped back into place, and rivited back together. Did it by myself, so if you have help it could go pretty quick.
My suggestion would be to cut off the roof and the windows where you wanted and leave the lower side walls. Ulilize the stock metal floor. You could use the old rear section to graft back on to the new rear and enclose the driver/passenger area.
Just some thoughts.....good luck
