My bus is about 72" in the center as well and I'm 70" tall so I really hate to take much headroom out; especially since I want to put some covering on the ceiling too. I don't mind being close to the ceiling but I don't want to have to stoop all the time.



Always decisions and choices!

What is covering your floor? Is the original floor grey like that?

Well Mr. Petty, you're doing a helluva job there; it looks just marvelous! (I'm jealous by the way!). Thanks very much for taking the time to post all those pictures and update us on your progress. I've really enjoyed reading and re-reading your site.

Greetings,

Originally, I was going to leave the rubber floor in place and cover with carpet, but it was uneven.

When I pealed up the cracked and torn rubber floor, I found some rust spots on the floor so I am glad I did pull it up, luckily only one was over about a 1/2", so they were easy to seal.

Anywhere there was rust, it was treated with rust converter, then if there were holes, they were sealed.

98% of the floor was still in good shape with the original black factory paint showing, so I really got lucky.

Also, most of the contact cement that held the rubber down went with the floor, so I didn't have a lot of prep work to do.

The floor was then sealed with some MIL-Spec 50/50 epoxy primer I had sitting around - that stuff sticks to ANYTHING and does a pretty good job of self leveling.
