This is a VERY proprietary part. Not generic. Its custom molded.

Hate it when that happens I wish more manufacturers would use standard parts and pieces. It sounds like you found a better solution anyhow. My bus door is air actuated so there is a "cool" factor but it will get replaced regardless I'm already tired of messing with a bus door again.

My service door is air actuated.
We're talking about the wheel chair door here.

What about taking 2 different profiles and gluing them together to get the desired seal?

I'm not going to mess with it anymore. THe WC door is rusty anyhow, so paneling over it and installing an RV door is a no-brainer at this point.

Amazingly suck!!! Needs to be at least 74" least I'll scalp myself. That's about the perfect height to get thru most days. But that one day when not thinking about it or distracted...

Fixed the door!


Starting to get excited about the shorty again. We had it listed on CL but the more I work on it the more I'm convinced that I either need to charge more money for it or quit trying to sell it.

Sweet. The way you made it sound was the only thing holding it together was the rust. When I saw it, ... um where's the rot? Inside maybe. Nope not there either. That little bitty bit of rust is all of 2 inches wide by 5 inches long. Cut that sucker 3x8 and slap a new piece on there!!

I was imagining ... who's video was it where they basically reskinned the bus from the floor up? The dude from Canada that doesn't post any more maybe? Can't remember if it was him or someone else.
