Seat Bolts Rusted Through

I've got a '90 TC2000 (flat nose) 'Bird. When we pulled the seats out, a couple of bolts actually twisted off. Some were about half eaten through with rust and some weren't too bad.

I believe my bus spent most of it's life at an Air Force Base in Utah. Utah is a very dry state. For those living in the damper parts of the country, I'd give some thought to your seat mounts if you have left the seats in their original position. Just a thought.

I have a 91 TC2000 (flat nose) and it sounds like my seat bolts were in the same condition as yours, which is suprising since my bus was used in Michigan for 13 school years. This made removing the seats rather easy. All I did was take out the 2 bolts on the wall side (along the edge) and yank the seat out breaking the other 4 bolts. I'd say this worked on about 80% of the seats.
