Chair Rail On A Crown

Has anyone removed the chair rail on a Crown Bus? How important is it to structural integrity ?

From what I've read on here its not worth the work and problems it creates... I did see a Tailgating bus they put a rather thick sheet of Aluminum over the Rub Rails and then put a Vinyl Wrap banner on it... it looked good!

Re: Chair Rail On A Crown

Did you mean to address Rub Rails or Chair Rails? I'm talking about the rail on the inside where the seats bolt to the wall, its welded to the inside of the ribs & I'm wondering if it's for added strength or just to support the chairs,If I can remove it I gain about 3 in in with I can use

Re: Chair Rail On A Crown

A lot of folks use that area as wire/plumbing "chases" to hide every thing behind a base board

I cut off approx. 3" to remove the part the chair sits on. Do not completely remove it though, it is what attaches the posts to the floor. It is structural.
