ive noticed some newer IC busses that what looks like the exact same wheelchair door.. wonder if getting the VIN on a newer bus would help,

Paul's equiupment in ohio sometimes has quite a few scrapped out school busses..

usedschoolbusesonline.com Phone # 855-607-6559

Also went by interstatebus@gmail.com AND interstatebusrentals.com

They weren't too chatty, with me, but I mentioned you had a AmTram and might need a w/c door. They needed the size, which I didn't know, so they said to check the website.

Good luck
Thanks I'll try them monday. I REALLY NEED THAT WC DOOR SEAL!

Thanks! ANY leads appreciated.
I've tried looking on the web for IC, AmTran, Ward, and had no luck. I hate calling places. IDK why but I just do. Guess I need to make more calls. I'm getting to that point of NEEDING these few parts and its holding me up a bit.

I cut the rust hole out of the back, and the entire inside behind it was completely crumbling with rust.

Yup, you're correct. It was the back window leaking, as well as the tail light.
The fiberglass that came out was MOLDY too.

You may check to see if you can get a complete door, with seal. Not the cheapest way, but might be 'the way'

IDK where I'd find that.
The few I've found online don't have the seal the door is hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

Everything in that rear wall under the window that wasn't galvanized rusted completely away. GONE!
The rest of the bus is virtually rust free. only the WC door and service door have any real rust otherwise.
