B700/Thomas Ceiling



Just noticed on my Ford/Thomas that the ceiling panels are held with Screws not Rivets.

Thumbs up

Same goes for my 1999 MVP: Sheet metal #10 at ⅝", truss head Phillips. They will be replaced with Robertsons.

You guys are going to miss all the fun of doing rivets. You got to wonder how all those screws stay in there for however many years old your bus is. I always have a loose screw somewhere, not necessarily metaphorically speaking.
