2004 International Build

Bought my bus 10 days ago from New Jersey. Ripped out all the seats and started in on floor. Yikes I probably removed 20lbs of rust from the floor. Plan is to treat it, seal it and patch holes with new sheets.

Itís a bit disappointing seeing the floor like this 😞

It could be worse, but this is to be expected from buses around this area (my bus was from Buffalo and Syracuse). With yours, it looks like some ospho and paint and a few small patches welded in will take care of things. Your floor might look bad but it's relatively minor as rust damage goes.

Another example why we don't look for buses in New England. That's bad, but not near as bad as Musigenesis' was. Shows no matter how intact the upper floor is, guaranteed there is rust under it.
