Bunk beds.

I planned to use the bottom bunk to cover the passenger side wheel well and to hide my House batteries. As with everything else in the bus I have no idea what it's going to look like until I build it. Here is how the lower bunk turned out:



The disappearing wheel well.



Then a 4" deep storage tray.



The house Battery box is 28"X32" by 13" tall.



Lower bunk framed, the lid lifts up for easy access.

I also wanted some storage space incorporated into the top bunk.



Top bunk storage 27X77X6 deep.



Rail.



Mattress pad support lifts up.



How they turned out minus some trim.

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

The plan is to paint the ceiling, cabinets and walls that are covered with ply with an off-white semi gloss enamel. That will clean up well and add a ton of interior light. The knotty pine will get clear acrylic polyurethane. I am even considering painting the off-white first then spraying the interior with polyurethane, even the white painted areas.

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

Man Tim...the sun visor. I really like the idea of having one, I was thinking of fabricating it myself out of 20-gauge sheet metal but by the time the idea hit me I think it was to late. I already had the pine on inside and I think I would of needed the strength of bolting into steel supports through the sheet metal skin. At this point I think the visor idea may be shot down but I sure think it would look good. I may go ahead and build one next year if the bug bites and just weld it on, it would go along ways towards breaking up that extra space above the windshield. I don't have the skills to fabricate more then just straight angles, which would look good but what I really think would look great is a sun visor that kind of mimicked the old '50s Chevy visors.
