Well I gave it a good shot, spent all day trying to fix the wheelchair lift, it just would not do right, finely got to where it would not even go back into the bus.
So by 9:30 p.m. I had most of the lift removed in sections so I could close the doors. will finish removing it tomorrow.

Well I spent most of yesterday removing the seats, this job went pretty easily in my Bus. thankfully my seats are a attached in rails in the floor with threaded blocks in them. so some WD-40 and a few wrenchs and an old electric impact gun made for a pretty easy job. I am going to re purpose the seat frames to make mounts for a table and some counters and maybe a wall support. will post some pics soon.

I love old seat frames... ive use a couple for various things.. I removed the cushions asnd cut the back off of one of mine to use it as a cage for my batteries.. another is used as a cage for small items that move around when I travel.

Just an update, I have the bus stripped out, new floor installed, made a queen size bed frame in the back using the meat from the seat frames, have part of my counter top framed, installed an wired a generator transfer switch, installed the power converter/charger. bought and tested out a harbor freight 45 watt solar set up with a 2000 watt/4000 peak inverter. ( note so far that inverter is crap. won't run the portable a/c unit. could be the batterys, so will do more testing. ) will add some more pics soon.
