Heyyy folks, I've been working on my 6-window short bus conversion since January 2019, I took a break from working on it and lived in it off and on from June-December, since then I've lived in it while finishing it up before my lease is up next December
I just installed this cargo rack beneath the back end of the bus, and I'm looking to cut the access doors. I will cut one door into the left side of the bus, and I'm planning to cut the other out by removing the middle section of the bus bumper, in between the two sets of bolts holding the bumper to the frame. The bumper is probably 3/8" thick, and attached to the frame in several spots. My thought is that cutting the middle section out for a door won't significantly affect the strength of it.
What do you think?
