New Conversion Project
Beginning conversion of 1999 Ford E-450 Super Duty, 6.8L, STARTRANS Senator 17 Seat short bus, 176" wheelbase. First problem: Soft spots in floor. Looks like I have some sort of sheet metal, covered with some plywood, covered with rubber matting. I am thinking about ripping out the plywood and replacing it, but I don't know what I would be getting into. Does any of the fiberglass shell sit on the plywood deck? If I remove the rubber corner molding and rubber floor mat, does the plywood come off easy and replacement straight forward? Next is how to connect things to the fiberglass shell without damaging the shell?
