I resemble that remark! (Except for the suit. Us computer types never wear suits. We're more into lederhosen and Birkenstocks.)

That's the official uniform for DC data centers? Not sure I want to imagine that. =P

Hey Chili, I don't have a wheelchair lift in my bus so I'm not sure what the best thing to do with it is. But if you do decide to take it out and sell it post an ad on Craigslist. It should be worth something. Good luck.

Got the 3rd hand I needed last night, seats are all loose and piled in the back of the bus. Panels between windows and roof all down, started cutting the lower panels loose but it got hot. Rained cooled it off, now it time for a few beers and some more angle grinder time.

Think my neighbor got bit, He popped over this morning and was asking questions (I told him months ago I was getting a bus, he thought I was kidding) after poking around he said this is perfect for a weekend for Matagorda trips. Then I told him where I got it and what I paid. "I need to get one"

Got a bit more done, the low panel is pic 3 is also cut out now.

Started cutting the rivets in the ceiling but my arms turned to noodles no it's gonna have to wait til another day.

To sum up where I'm at: seats are demo'd, all upper wall panels down, right side lower panels out except a small one, first ceiling panel is ~30% down.


Run into 2 types of rivets, really easy to grind off the ones that only go through a single panel, the ones through double panels are WAYYY beefier. Tried drilling, eff that, grinding disc worked pretty good, flap wheel worked pretty good, might fire up my bigger grinder to knock out the ceiling, 4.5" dewalt ain't cutting fast enough for my liking.

I want a bus with a wheelchair lift.

Where did you get your bus from?

Local auction site, call school district maintenance departments and ask how they dispose of surplus buses.
