I've got the seats out, but the floor is in good enough shape to leave it in.  Since I'm going to be using point heating, I don't need the heater ducting, but wonder if there is any reason to leave that in place.  How much trouble is it to remove?

It's very simple. Remove the screws at the floor and pull the ducts out of the seat rail along the top. There are a few diverter vanes to remove, but they are also simple and self-evident when you get the ducts out.

The only screws are at the bottom?  Do they go into wood or metal (as in, will they come out easily or should I expect to chisel them out)?

They screw into the wood floor. Most of mine pulled out without a screwdriver.

I think there is the issue of crud in there that can stink if the humidity goes up or the bus sits for long.  Any way, look at the weight savings....even without the crud angle.

The floor covering ends at the duct too so it will exspose the wood floor there when you get it cleaned up. Jerry
