taking the inner roof panels out and re installing them will take a lot of time and work.
im definitely doing the insulated roof coat. im trying to do as little as possible that would impact headroom. thats why i didn't insulate the floor(im hoping to get a small bit of insulation value from the laminate and that quietwalk underlayment stuff). prehaps i could bend insulation panels and jam them up from the cable race area in between the ribs?

I know why you have water jugs on the floor of your bus. I did the same thing.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

if you have trouble with the battery charger, also check to see if it is putting out the proper voltage. my older brother has one just like it, and he discovered it works, but only puts out 12.1 volts, and couldn't figure out why his batteries were charging some, but not getting fully charged up... its the only one i have ever seen that did that. most just quit.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i didnt do to much yesterday, i removed the remaining decal from the front of the bus that says "School Bus", removed the front and back screw on eyebrows, and installed a lock on the side door. i also got on top of the bus and cut back all branches that were touching the bus. the license branch says i need to have the bus inspected by Washington State Patrol in order to change from bus to RV on the title. i wonder what they will need to see to pass my bus? if anyone knows please let me know.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

picked this up for $20 at habitat for humanity, industrial hand sink for $10 i may move the goose neck faucet over to the peach colored sink, or get a new counter top as the small stainless sink would be perfect for an RV kitchen i will cut a notch in the back and bolt it directly to the chair rail. i will cut a hole in the top for a small, 2 burner stove.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

8 way flashers from inside of the bus. looks like some sealed beam bulbs in there. when i remove them to skin the holes over, i wonder if i can use the bulbs for something else like fog lights or something. it would be a shame to just chuck them in the trash


I installed the goose neck faucet from the hand sink onto the bathroom sink. should be able to use this as a kitchen sink in this configuration
