Nice install on the Media Center. I like the wood trim you put around it.

thanks, the trim serves a practical purpose, and the cavity i cut in the metal isn't deep enough to accommodate the media center. so i bolted the 2x2`s into the metal then screwed the media center into the wood. The wood needs a couple more coats of shellac, i also intend to carpet tile the unused area around the wood.

thanks,
i driven the bus since i bought it home, so i don't know about road noise and if the carpet helps. but it has removed the echo when im doing work inside the bus. it also seems to keep the bus warmer as there is less steel in contact with the inside of the bus. i have a lot more carpet to glue down.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

added some more walls over the windows, and carpeted them, plus i blocked off the roof vent with a piece of felt underlayment, and insulated all around the vent hole as there was at least a foot of space in between the inner and outer skins of the bus with no insulation around the vent hole.i also finished carpeting the front area above the windshield

That came out nice, well done! ... Good to keep access door "accessible" on floor.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Looks really nice. Wow. And you left the seat rails in as a nice border and finished nicely. I hate them but don't see where I can do much different unless I brought the walls in to their level or somehow hammered them down/up against the walls. Makes for a nice break though.

They do make a great electrical/hydrulic chase when closed below the rail.
