Ahh... I wonder how many blocked the floor access hatches in their buses (not only this model) when they did their conversions?
Ya know thatz funny you mention that.
I remember when Cody was at our place once and had a cracked exhaust manifold.
He asked "So how hard is that going to be to fix?"
I told him ah it won't be to bad with getting in here on the drivers side and down through the access panels in the floor.
All the sudden he had this deer in the headlights look and asked "What access panels in the floor?"
I told him oh in the bedroom there should be removable panels for a mechanic to access the engine/trans for service.
He got this even more horrified look and said "This bus has no panels like that! I built this thing and I can assure you it's got 2" of solid floor from front to back"
I asked are you sure?
He told me
"Yes I'm sure. I bought this bus with NO FLOOR AT ALL and I didn't know anything about access panels!"
I just looked at him and sighed and told him Well looks like it's time for that rear bedroom remodel Libby & you wanted.
He responded "But we never wanted to remodel the rear bedroom!
I just looked at him and laughed and said well ya do now!
He was horrified, mortified and pissed all at the same time.
But he took power screwdrivers, prybars, wrecking bars and a sawzall in the bus and a few hrs later he came out and said "We now have access!, Just becarefull not to fall thru!
I went in and rolled out laughing because he had cleared about a 6'X6' hole with plenty of room to just slide down in beside or on top of the engine/trans and do anything ya wanted to!
But on the bright side Booger and "The Don" had plenty of room to get in there an get'r done!
