Well the bus has been on the road for 5 years-and of course its never really finished. The next thing on the list is start fixing the rust.
The stairs had a bodgy repair before me-and the lower step would oil can when on it.
I'm going to need to come up with some new stair tread-any suggestions?
I was worried about removing the doors. There was always too much slop in the linkage for the doors-so I did a couple of things I knew I'd later regret. I drilled + pinned one of them (but not all the way thru because of a bad angle for drilling-and the other one I tack weld the shaft the the linkage. So I had to undo these crappy repairs before I could even start getting the doors off. Once the rubber weather shield was removed, you could see the bottom mount-2 bolts on a bracket-countersunk and rusted to hell. Out comes the die grinder. Then removed snap rings + the bronze bushing slide off ans the door comes off.
I punched some holes at the corners of the stairs big enough to get a sawzall started. It took a while but I got most of the stairs off-just a lip where couldn't get closer.
