I would say just disconnect the battery before you cut them so there is no risk of shock.

there is zero risk of shock....unless you touch the wires to your tongue.

You can wet your fingers and touch both terminals on a bus or other automotive battery and you will feel nothing. 12 volts is completely harmless when it comes to electrocution.

somewhere over 40 volts electricity becomes dangerous to humans.

Re: 1985 Blue Bird 'Micro Bird'

I just joined this site a few days ago, and given that it is now October, my guess is you have figured out the caulk removal! I am getting ready to start my own conversion project in the near future and I have had similar questions that you have raised. I've learned a lot just in the few days that I have been reading the blogs on this site. Great info! Thanks to you and all of the other helpful members!! Do you have any recent pics of the progress on your shorty?

Any updated pics to you bus? I was curious about your setup with the booth/bed, I want to see if it became of it.. I was thinking of doing the same in my bus, seeing as how we have very similar buses?

Re: 1985 Blue Bird 'Micro Bird'

On Saturday I had to run my stock car to the muffler shop that sponsors me in Cloquet and stopped at Wal-Mart on the way back to the race garage when someone recognized my hauler in the parking lot. It was nice to meet a fellow skoolie Shortbus. I hope you get your transportation issues solved so you can get back to working on the bus. Hopefully my bus is a little cleaner next time I run into someone but I have been so busy working on the mechanical things and cosmetics that I haven't had a chance to clean the inside since May.
