Yeah, it matters to me.....I'm 5'1" and just over 100 lbs.....pretty creepy description of what sounds like alot of pain. These are the reasons I have avoided tools pretty much my whole life.
But desire is a strange thing.....I want to see that bus transformed badly. I'd rather have helpers here and there, and that may be how this all works out, at least for the hardest stuff. Than my 10 year old son and I can do the easier tasks, which I imagine there will be plenty of.
Planning on picking up this air compressor tomorrow:

Air chisel

I used an air chisel on the rivets (about a cajillion of them). First I used a long pointy one to drive the center pin back then a flat chisel to cut them off. If you keep the chisel sharp it cuts through them like nothing. Be careful when the ceiling panels come down they are heavy and awkward. They will also cut you.
Hopeless Busaholic!
