Tearing Out The Seats

Well, the pictures I thought I took of the actual tearing out of the seats are either on the roll of film that didn't come out, or I have misplaced them. So I'll just describe it to you.

The seats were the second-hardest of dismantling the bus for conversion. There are 20 seats in all that needed to be removed. Each seat has one leg for the isle side. The wall side of the seat rested on a lip on the wall. Each seat had 2 bolts on the isle leg, and one bolt each for the front of the seat and the back of the seat on the wall side. The bolts on the isle leg were held on by nuts under the bus. This meant that someone had to crawl under the bus and hold onto the nut with a wrench or vice grip, whichever would fit. Then someone would have to unscrew the bolt from the floor with a socket wrench. What made this such a chore was that underneath the bus was dirty and dark (we were parked on a dirt driveway and a lot of work was done in the evenings). Also, the bolts were not uniform in size and some were rusted to the bus, which made them difficult to remove. We finally got them all unbolted and after a futile attempt to sell them, I finally dumped them at a large business complex dumpster.
