Removing the wheelchair anchor points and the plywood floor

This was a productive weekend thanks to the cooperation of the weather.

The job was to remove the wheelchairs anchor points to be able to take out the plywood floor. Not a simple task because each anchor has 4 bolts with nuts underneath of the van which were spinning.

Once the anchors were removed we were able to take the two pieces of plywood without any damage.

We cleaned the floor and now it is almost ready for the second stage, plug many holes left by pop rivets and several bolts.

The Toyota commuter buses have an anti rattle membrane bonded on the floor to reduce the noise. This membrane is sticky and with the years the felp bonded on the vinyl floor covering was glued to the membrane. It took few hours to remove it.
