Where to buy: Ribbed Skin for 2001 International Bus

Hi All,
I am trying to seal off my front entrance and would like to get about 5' of the ribbed skin that originally came with the bus. Does anyone know where I can get this without necessarily going through the dealership?

Thanks

Best bet would probably be a junkyard. Call around to a few and ask if they have one of your year/ make/ model. Then have a fun day with the angle grinder to get what u need.

Since the rib patterns for most skoolie skin seem to vary, I'm guessing that the only sources will be the body maker or junkyards.

Finally was able to find it. Dealer wants $510 because he is the only one left with 4 in the whole country. Navistar discontinued them. Any new order from factory has to be a special order. Funny thing is that said part was $250 2 years ago.

These guys make replacement body parts for buses. Not sure if they've got what you're looking for but they're nice folks to deal with.

You are the man! I actually lived about 100 miles across to border in PA from them at one time. I appreciate the find. I will give them a buzz and see.

I am sincerely grateful.
