Try searching YouTube, I think I saw someone do it there too... Maybe the same person.

Yeah. Flipped the piano hinge, welded a piece of flat stock between the windows and swung it out. If I remember right most of the holes lined up on the bus, but needed to drill a bunch into.tne door.

There certainly is. I read it a couple of weeks ago. And I swear I saw it on YouTube as well.
It was under conversion tutorials.
I was up late and scrolling looking for ideas.

I saw a blood-mobile Blue-Bird bus just today with a nice front door... looks like its factory made that way... has the blue-bird signature lip at the bottom of the door..
