We recently purchased a 1988 Chevy GT 30 Cutaway bus/van. Converting it into a camper for just the two of us. We are new to this and look forward to your ideas. So far I have started removing the old floor which is pretty rusted out in places and need repaired.

Please send your ideas and suggestions.

Thank you.

Start out with the floor rust using a braided wire wheel. The regular wire wheels are a waste of time!

I prefer a flapper disc. angle grinder is your friend during demo days. get a variety of discs, cutoff wheels, etc.

fill out our "about me" section in your user profile so we know where you are and what your skoolie is. Welcome and congrats

Welcome! Where in Iowa are you located? I am currently doing my build in Colfax, but I live in Des Moines.

Welcome,
I like the braided wheels as well, especially if you have one of the variable speed 7" polishers, otherwise the standard grinder bangs it out as well.

as others have already mentioned fill out some of the user info.....

and pictures..... lots and lots of pictures
