Hi everyone-- My name's Cassidy and I'm new to skoolie community... Have been doing a lot of research the last couple months while inside... I am a high school Spanish teacher hoping to do a rather simple short bus convert (reutilizing seats and keeping with a bus/classroom feel on inside) and embrace bus life fulltime this fall. After much searching, I think I may have found a bus, but I'd love your opinions first!
About bus: 1999 Chevy Thomas G3500 Express 20' Chassis 6.5L Duramax Diesel Engine Hydraulic Breaks 176,000 miles
I really like the size and features of this bus, while my main concern is fixing and controlling the rust so it doesn't create further damage. Can I stop the rust around screws/floor edges without ripping up floor? All thoughts and advice greatly appreciated. Some pics attached from when I went to see bus.
