My bus is a 89 Prevost. I find it amazing how these things are put together. The fiberglass bathroom was a challenge. Used the sawzall a lot. The overhead racks were also a challenge, one side took awhile to figure out how they were mounted then I dropped the whole rack to the floor, they are very heavy. The opposite side went faster. Seats were sold before I picked up the bus so didn't have to deal with those. This weekend I removed the rear fiberglass cap, that was quite an undertaking, a lot of rivits. Starting to trace back all the wiring so it can be disconnected. This is a pain because the harness is all taped together. My next challenge will be removing the flooring, installing the new rear cap and since the rear cap is off bringing in the new shower stall while I have a large opening to get it through.

You would be surprised at what happens when you go to a pawn shop and buy a circular saw for 10-15
bucks and attack those aluminum package racks and how easy they go out a window. Throw that pawn shop saw in the dumpster in about 2 days. PS I cut all the holes in the bay floor for my Gen before trashing. Be sure and wear your safety glasses
