Removing walls on a 1998 Freightliner Thomas

I'm stuck in my demolition trying to remove the walls. I unscrewed all of the screws that hold the walls to the body, but they are still attached at the top.

Do I have to cut all of these walls off? Or are they attached somewhere else I'm not seeing?

This bus is extremely well built/a pain in the ass to demo! The rubber floor was glued to the metal and it took me 3 days to scrape it off. Now I'm on day 2 with these walls. Help!

If you remove a window you will see that metal is spot welded behind the window.Most of us just cut the panels off with a cutting wheel on a angle grinder, or in my case a set of electric shears made quick work of them.
Be glad you didn't have plywood under the rubber mat to remove.

Clean job. Where is your bus from? Where are you from? Go to the UserCP in the upper left and fill out your profile to help better answer location related questions. Look at some others to see all the info you can put in the profile.

Looks like you got a good, rust free floor.

My bus is from NC. I think the state as a whole has some of the cleanest buses, at least on the East Coast, in terms of rust and maintenance.

I filled in my profile a little. Thanks for the tip!
