Door floor rusted out

I saw a bus in a junk yard (the owner finally let me in and was surprised anybody would want to look at the buses) and the first step on one of the late 80s Internationals was rusted out. How would you fix this damage or would you walk away from the bus. Oh, yes, I am not interested in this bus at all.

It's not easy. It takes quite a few metal working tools, a welder and some skills!

Re: Door floor rusted out

the steps, while being a pain to fix..wouldn't worry me too much..I remember the "cleaning" our bus would get during muddy days..a garden hose and drip dry was about yeah, the bottom step would be the first to go...deffently check under the bus and carefully go over the rest of it for rust though
