This stuff is made for actual houses. For applications where actual fiberglass would work.
Makes sense. Thanks for pointing that out!

I'm down for the lawsuit against fiberglass.

I also agree it is as bad as asbestos.

Here in Alberta Canada, guys working in modular home construction plants still don't wear any protective gear at all. No mask, coverall, glasses, ect.

Some guys lay in the stuff while having lunch.

Yuk

No paper on the stuff we get here.

Removed drivers chair (currently in search of nice new/used captains chair) and started to tackle the job of replacing the control console. labeling all the switches and making diagrams. The heater system below will stay. Will make a custom dash defroster and media/control panel. Keeping the wiring and switches just slimming it down a bit. We will be keeping the double swing doors the bus came with and the mechanism, going to be a refurbishing project of mine. As well as the oval window labeled Emergency Equipment Inside because it would looked nice in a wood cabinet door. Will also be removing the lights up top on the front and back that come on when door is open and kids are boarding/unloading. Lots of tedious wire tracking and labeling.

Hi, haven't posted in a bit, so here's an update. Removed the rear wall interior panels, removed the linoleum on the stairs, and found there was no rust except a little patch where the door meets the bottom of the stairs, got all of the wires sorted and figured out. Then removed the drivers heater console (will clean and put back in) and capped off the coolant tubes. Then we were able to remove the last of the linoleum and plywood in drivers area. The bus is 100% free of fiberglass insulation, linoleum, and plywood as of now. So here is a picture of the drivers area, we paid very close attention to the wires we were removing, and labeling and the bus still starts and moves with all this removed.
