Installing new floor OVER original floor
Ahoy - New user and skoolie builder here, looking for some advice.
I'm actually helping my son convert his 2004 Thomas Engine SPED shorty, and we've hit a major roadblock. The Sure-Lok tracks in the floor are held in place by hex bolts that are completey rusted and locked where the bolt connects on the underside of the bus.
He is adamant about NOT installing the new floor over the existing floor, insisting that the original flooring be removed. While I'm trying to advise him that it would be exponentially easier to simply build the new floor atop the old.
Your thoughts, pros, and cons are whole-heartedly welcomed.
