I was told that mine was a 3 pound closed cell foam normally sprayed on the exterior of new foundations. I don't know enough about foam to tell you what to get or not get. This guy sprayed my bus for the cost of a larger 800 sf do-it-yourself spray foam kit. If I were to do the insulation again I'd buy the kit and do it myself. The contractor spray guy didn't really give a carp about doing a good job on my bus. If I were to use spray foam again I'd get the kit and do it myself. Nobody will do the quality of work that you'll do on your own bus. That's my best tip.

I have found that to be totally true with hiring someone to work on your house, so it makes sense that it would be true in this case.

Finally finished getting the coolant loop out of the rear passenger compartment. It wasn't much fun, but got easier when I found an access panel with four screws. It allowed me to get right at what I needed to!

remember if you completely remove the heater loop that goes from the back to the front in a rear engine bus without replacing it.. you will not have any heating or defrosting capabilities for the windshield or while on the road...

Yep, project for a later date. Plan to route lines underneath.
