Ive certainly learned so far to be much pickier about the bus I buy than I'd originally planned
Questions about the windows and chair rail.
A lot of the builds seem to leave the chair rail in citing stability concerns. Is this an actual issue? (mostly Im aware that cutting and building around that sticky out piece is going to be more complicated than ripping it out.
And windows....I don't want most of the windows regardless of the actual size of the bus. Just think it's going to cause insulation issues and a good number of them are going to be covered with internal walls/storage etc anyway. Do people just cover them? Or take them out?
Im in favour of the take them out and replace them with proper RV windows in the spots I want windows but that seems to involve raising the height of the window as well, so you don't have to duck to see out them, which just enters into a level of complication Im not sure I want to be in.
How complicated it is really and does it end up causing more problems than just waterproofing the frames of existing windows and maybe plastic'ing them in the winter....and summer....and screening for bugs.
Headliner: thoughts on pulling out an reinsulating this? I cant seem to find out how thick the actual insulation is in there (and don't have a bus yet to check...Im still in homework phase) I will be doing spray insulation as I think that's best and I have a friend who does it and will give me a great deal but I don't know if all the extra work on the headliner is even worth it?
While we're on the insulation question has anyone used insulating paint? Thoughts? (I only found one build here that did and that lady swore by it)
