I have learned a few thingsduring the destruction phase of this project.

I've never used a 4" grinder for cutting,,I'm used to using air die grinders for that but my cheesy home air compressor can't keep up with high volume air tools.
So for cuts that the Sawzall won't work for I spend alot of time waiting for the friggin compressor.
Oh yeah,,,,,Sawzall blades and weld don't mix well.

So anyway,,, the other day I realized that they make cut off wheels for 4" grinders,,,,So no more waiting for the damn compressor and the thing cuts better then my air die grinder at work where we have a huge compressor that has a 160 psi working pressure. Awesome!

Guess the final paint job will have to be duct tape silver.

In for a penny, in for a pound. Another bus owner here, only we didn't use the sawzall on ours yet. It's been faithfully hauling bikes all spring/summer across the country and back.
