Are yours still in place or have you removed them?

i left mine still in place. just checked out your build thread - man are you getting after it.

I decided to treat rust as a personal insult.

Took awhile to upload the pics. Removing them was easy as it is just screws on my bus, but there were a lot of screws. Remove 2 screws that hold the door extension arm and it come right down. Let me tell you it makes accessing wires in there a breeze. The only negative I see to removing mine is I have to find a neighbor to hold it up while I get screws started, it's large, and awkward.
