Everyone but him. But by all means give me **** for correcting someone new to the scene. I'm pretty sure that's why most come here, to learn, not get a participation award. The bus pictured was not an AmTran, and it sure wasn't a Trans Am. OP wasn't offended, why are you?

yeah its real convenient that most inspection shops are also repair shops "specializing in emission repairs"....


fortunately in central Ohio the only "inspection" we get is "does the VIN match whats on the title?"..

You don't want to weld directly to the main frame that is why the body has its own sub structure the main frame will flex a little as the unit is going down the road in corners that is the reasoning behind the rubber pads and the clamps that hold the body to the main frame it doesn't look like it will hurt the frame at the points that are welded just grind it loose and repaint well but you want the body and the frame to be separate that is why you see rubber bushings on car and truck body's and if you ever want to put the coach on a different chassis it needs to have a way to be unbolted I have welded a lot of frame's with no problems just don't combine the two

I believe that system is designed to detach the body from the frame in a heavy accident. Unlike a car or truck where the body is bolted directly to the frame.
