The one I was at was a little ghetto so I'll try one in a fancier hood.

I already have a compressor.
You better get over there...parking lot sale today!!

I drill out the center, then use air chisel... fwiw, the sides of the bus look so much better without the rails...

Yeah, I went. Got an electric tin snip. Doesn't work so well cutting metal out of the floor. It's supposed to handle 14 gauge. I tried it in a couple of spots without any luck. Went back to the cutting wheel. Easier and faster.

If you text 222377, they will send you a code for a 20% coupon. Since I didn't have any flyers with me (usually included in all their ads), I got one. Bought the pneumatic riveter, had my daughter do it too. Went back the next day for the snips. Today I have the flyer coupon. I think the next most "expensive" thing is the air hammer at $14. Still need to to get a second angle grinder, chisels for said hammer, contour gauge, and a set of sheet metal vice grips. It's going to be a busy weekend shopping.

I have two routes on the drive home. One of those takes me past the cheap gas station and HF. I wouldn't go out of my way for 20% off of $15.

Pics? I like the rub rails I think. I've not seen a skoolie in person without them.

Be advised that the "rub rails" are also structural. Primarily designed to add side impact resistance, they also stiffen the panels and tie the ribs together all along the length.
