Orygun,

You are starting one of the most dreaded of tasks.  Or so I have read over the years.  The problem seems to be determining the order in which the various big chunks were installed.  Seems that that is a serious challenge, somehow.  A cutting torch doesn't work on stainless st. (SS) so that comment about the plasma cutter was serious.  Maybe you can borrow a light duty plasma cutter when you get to that part.  I read one post that talked about discovering a lonely rivet on the outside of the bus that was located "UNDER" the window gasket and that little dickens cost him a few hours and narrowly spared the bus an experience involving explosives Shocked Roll Eyes Grin   There are some sites on here that purport to cover the removal step by step and secret rivet to secret rivet.  FIND THEM!  I think Gumpy's site is one...find the others.  Wish I could be of more help.

Where in Orugun are you located?

John....of Eugene

Haha so as most of you know I am in a band, so when we were ripping the bus apart it was kinda a team operation.  And that involves opinions, such as....when you are ripping the bus apart and leaving to go on tour in a week, if it is a good idea to completely gut it or maybe leave some things and focus on more imporant items such as bunk beds.

well, to say the least me and one other guy were a little bit more motivated than the rest.  after having a few disagreements about whether to remove the bathroom in the rear or not, it was 2 vs 3 in favor of the bathroom staying.  so me and the other guy decided to order some pizza, brought it inside, told the 3 guys that there was pizza inside and well be in in a minute.

well....after about 30 minutes they caught on but it was already too late for them as the doors and walls were removed.  unfortunately the process was alot longer than i had expected, but i got it done pretty quick.

my tools were a drill for the rivets, hamer and a prybar.  everything is pretty straight forward with the exception of the metal floor. there is a lip that goes underneath the plywood.

my suggestion is to do what i did and thats pretend that its super frustrating and complain while someone handy is around.  they will usually  volunteer to do it as you then go inside and eat some pizza and come back to see them successful  in their quest :-)

When I ripped mine out, I opened the window, took a sawzall and cut the forward wall at the belt line.
I kept that top half of the wall with the roof curve as a template and quess what,
That curve fits all the way from front to back perfectly. Shocked
