Default what year or, did they ever stop being a bus?

I have heard the 88 was the last all steel? but is there a year where they just became a fiberglass build? I am not wanting a de-lamination issue is that even a thing on bluebirds? don't know if this is the right place for this post? or point me to the link where this has been discussed a million times

There has never been fiberglass sides on a Bird. The end caps and bumpers on post 88s are, but will never "delaminate". The sides are either steel, stainless steel, or aluminum.
