Nat,

Ya into the peg board. I sealed all of the peg board stuff and over all the screw heads with safecoat sealant.. I was worried about the peg board rotting so that is why I sealed all of it. Cedar does not really rot either so I should be good on that.

I am not sure it was just called hardboard, it looked just like peg board really smooth on one side like glass and the roughish on the other.

Was it compresses sawdust, or chips?

Did it have holes or none?

no holes, compressed dust, I do believe you that is a possibility of happening but nothing can be done about it now ; )

Great looking bus! I would love to have a Crown.

As far as wood rot, I just resided a house with Hardi-board. Pulled off all of the original siding. Reason? Wood rot. Type of wood? Western Red Cedar. All wood will rot, if it gets wet and cannot dry out.

Brett,

Your right all wood does rot. Perhaps a better statement is that cedar is rot resistant. How old was the cedar you pulled and in what area of the country? I feel like with the propane heater I have going in there even if the screws did make some condensation that it will dry up quite quickly... I hope... only time will tell.

Bansil,

I actually have spray paint that matches that stove that I have, I am going to use. The people said to have the stove get hot first and to put the paintcan in warm water and then spray it to get the best. But its been too warm for a fire here.
