Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

That wood stove set-up is way cool! In fact the whole bus is way cool!. Chuck is right, your website is nice and easy to navigate. Very nice job all around. We're just down the road in Abilene. When we finish we'll have to stop by.

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

lookin good. I just re-read your whole thread earlier this week as part of inspiring myself and also as part of making sure all the ideas are fresh in my head.

Seeing it on video is a lot different from still pics and words. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

If enough people watch your vid you are going to be responsible for driving the the price of a skoolie shell up.
You show how a steel tube can be made into a great RV.

The coach converter crowd is obviously jealous. You got a better rig at a fraction of the price!

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

very nice work and as said before "nice music". Sure is different to see the bus in moving pictures. Have to remember that when ours is finished.

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

Look into the Nason 2k urethane. It has an integrated clear coat (how, I dont know) and has a good shine to it. A bit pricey but by the time you bought a the xo rust and a seperate clear coat I would think itd be about the same. The guy that painted my bus swears by this stuff, says it holds a shine for years and is very durable. I have xo rust on the interior and it is already starting to dull a little.

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

Wow great job - I don`t like to just do the at aboys but some projects are just so out standing and this one not just for the work but the web lay out and presentation. Like the Brown Crown and so many others on this website. Its efforts like yours that have Inspired so many others to take the first step to begin thier own project. Some times I wish I had kept more windows.

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

The carpet projects looks like it is coming along really well...I think it makes for a great looking roof.

Re: Bussin' It - the Conversion

Glenn,

Most of what I had to cut around on the carpet were pretty easy, so it wasn't a big deal to do the carpet last. One of my concerns was also that if the carpet goes up first, there may be a small amount of movement between studs and the ceiling panels when you start to build walls because you are going to have the spongey carpet between the stud and the ceiling. The carpet may add a little "give" to the walls/studs when you fasten them to the ceiling.

As for the odors, that has not been a problem for me. I have the traditional vent fan over the oven and and additional fan up on the roof behind the drivers seat. The carpet is not going to absorb any more odor than the couch, chairs, ect will, in my opinion. No one has ever came in the bus and told me what I had for dinner the last night and my carpet has been up now for well over a year. I think it really depends on what you think looks good in your bus and what works best for your conversion.
