I have to agree,on ours in the full summer sun the stock insulation keeps panels between studs cool....you can not touch the ribs at all tho'

Re: 1983 GMC Ward 66 passenger (Bigasspimp Mobile)

Not a whole lot to report. The bus conversion has kind of been on the back burner. I have found on craigslist an ad for insulation so Saturday (7/6/13) to pick up 25 sheets of 1.75 inch polyiso @ 4.00 a sheet. I thought was a real good deal so Im collection pieces to to try and get back on track. Here is a picture of the ad.... kind of excited. Another step. Now just need windows and some radiant barrier.

Got the insulation. I have hit a brick wall again. I am in the last semester of my HVAC school and have to of the hardest classes to try and keep ahead of so this will probably delay me getting things done. It will also help to know I have a job waiting making twice as much as I am right now so my focus is on school. Hopefully the bus will come around and all will be good.

Very small update.

Ordered these windows for the bus http://www.homedepot.com/p/TAFCO-WIN...y#.UdnQLB8o6M8

Bought some 2x2 steel square tubing so I will be welding in some of the metal framing to put the windows in.

I will be finally making some progress on the bus so should be some more posts here in the next few weeks.

So how did those windows work out?

I am wanting to replace my bus windows (and get rid of a lot of the glass), but am really not fond of RV windows either.
