John, before I put the walls on the floor drooped at the rear quite a bit, but since there is hardly any and if you look at the last pic you will notice a slight gap at the top where the two sections join, when its attached to the chassis it should be un-noticeable

This brings back some memories, the bus I was travelling on back in the day suddenly stopped resulting in a face full of the bar that runs acoss the top of the seats, luckily after an x-ray nothing was broken :D
