Not just window leaks but all the rain/snow/sleet tracked in by students for 20 years. You'd find yourself hard pressed to find a 20 year old bus that does not have floor damage from rust. It's rare to find one with none, and not unusual to find buses from desert areas that still have rusty floors. Fortunately, once you have it that far striped it's just fabrication to fix it and not hard to do.
It doesn't snow or rain in Ok.?
