Complications with floor removal

I wanted to edit my original post to include some photos and a few additional questions but was having trouble doing so so here is an entirely new post! Any advice is much appreciated~

I purchased a 1997 Thomas International school bus a few months ago. The engine is a Navistar T444E. I’ve removed the school bus seats, ceiling, and most of the floor. When removing the subfloors the other day I had some confusion regarding the cockpit of the bus surrounding the drivers seat. The control center for the bus is to the left of the drivers seat making it difficult to pull out the subfloor underneath. I’ve temporarily removed the seat but do I also need to remove the control center first? Do I cut the subfloor out around it? It seems like I can cut it out in pieces from the stairs to where the control center sits but honestly don’t know. Please help!!!

A few additional questions--

- What tools would you recommend using for rust removal?
- What are your thoughts on hammering in the nails, etc that stick out of the
metal flooring after subfloor removal?
