Slow down Josh!!! Getting Jim to cut the front of the floor and top hat was hard enough!!! He may let you drill all the spot welds out when we do cross the bridge of removing the floor....

I am not so sure I like the new name of this thread, but I am happy to see Jim motivated to fix this cool bus.
It is also nice to see all the Chicago area bus guys willing to jump in and lend a hand. Red Bus
