flexing

Anyone experience things coming undone due to the flexing of the body and chassis of the bus?

Flexing is normal and always present to one degree or another in all buses. Without flexing bus bodies would soon stress fatigue and fail. When you are choosing building materials keep this in mind. For example, plywood withstands flexing better than dry wall and so forth. Jack
