Iím curious, did you remove the floor sheet metal up to that point? If so, why not just replace that last section instead of hedging the bet on corroseal? Did you get the underside with corroseal as well?

Hey thrifty, yea I did the front had some holes so I bought two new sheets of metal but the back wasnít very bad I have put corroseal on everything thatís rusted except a couple things underneath which I will get to when the weather gets better. Going to lay the two new sheets down glue /bolt them in and then place sub flooring in.any suggestions? Comments Iím about to go to the shop and start working.not sure if Iím going to put insulation down because I donít want to lose headroom

Oh my bus is pitiful man Iím just in the beginning stages of conversion. Iím just in the robotic welding trade and know a little about metallurgy thats why I was asking, more for brainstorming really. You can go laugh at it in the ď92 Thomas vista conversionĒ thread.
Thereís my worst spot so I feel you!

Ouch! That looks like some fairly serious rust. How are the supports and frame?

Rest of the bus is great except this particular spot. Supports are also good except one pictured. Nothing a Hobart 140 sheet metal and some square tube canít fix. ;) seriously though there is a tar coating on most of the bus underside just looks like it was particularly worn in this spot. Sorry for the thread jack

People are so scared of a little rust as long as the frame is good hard work and a little metal can fix anything hereís a before and after of my floor for a little inspiration ( not that itís that good) .im lucky to have a couple buddies that are super mechanically inclined
