Hello, I am rather new here and just recently purchased a bus for my own conversion project. This site has been an awesome resource so first off, thank you.
I would like your feedback on how best to approach my goal on the external body and windows. I want to remove the windows all together and basically fill them, cover, and then paint with the rest of the body so it is seamless-ish. Basically I don't want it to look like I removed a bunch of windows when it's all said and done.
Options I have come up with:
1. Wood frame, plywood cut to window hole's size, silicon between frame and body, and smooth over with a bondo type material.
2. foam insert sized to window, fiberglass the sides and exterior, screw edges into frame, and again bondo seams and edges.
3. keep the windows and clean & seal them up, paint the interior black, and fill with foam insulation and plywood wall. Windows outside/wall inside. saw this on another conversion project.
Keep in mind I would really like to fill the horizontal creases with a fiberglass bondo so the sides are nice and smooth just because I like that look, why I am removing the windows.
Anyways, here is a picture of the beater, it def. needs some TLC.
Any ideas or best ways to approach this is greatly appreciated. Interior is almost gutted and want to remove a window this weekend and play with some ideas.
