Mine are staying in because they are great for securing cargo like having e-tracks.

They are also good for transferring cold air from under the bus into the floor. If you want to use them put them in your sub floor.

Yes, but not going to be living in it.

Did you happen to get your Thomas at auction from Escambia County Schools?

No. The bus came out of a VA school district.

I wish my bus had seats like that... you could keep the rails and then use the seat frames to build stuff out of in a modular fashion that could be removeable!!

You have to put a sub floor down. The rails could be used on top of the sub floor but the bus is only 27' so we won't have space to move things around. That would work in a 40' bus I suppose.

I am getting some heavy drilling equipment on the 24th. We got a lot of the bolts out, but there are more in than out since the underside of the bus covers the majority of them. Either way it will be nice (hopefully) to have to drill out less that all of them.

Congrats!! Where at in PA? The gf is in Elizabethtown outside of Harrisburg. Went to a bus dealer in Duncannon. Found a nice low mileage bus but it's a rust bucket.
