I teach elementary school all day long. You couldn't pay me to drive that 20 minutes of hell twice a day. On the flip side it would be nice to befriend a couple of mechanics!

Steel Gauge For Roof?

What gauge steel should I get to cover the emergency hatch hole? I need it to flex slightly because the top of the bus is an arc.

At some point I will be putting in an AC unit.
