Re: Buster

Get a sample piece of the flooring and give it a good scratch test. Bus floors take a lot more abuse than a home floor and many laminate flooring brands have a very thin finish layer which can wear through quickly. Plywood flooring just comes apart if it gets wet for an extended time so vinyl planks may be a better choice.

One of the members here is a builder and he recommends the Trafficmaster vinyl plank flooring for it's durability and water resistance.

Re: Buster

Thanks for the info! We are still prepping for painting. However, I did get the whole one side of the interior primed! We both work full time so when we get home we grab a quick bite to eat and head out to do a hour or two of work each night. SO progress is slow but progressing.
Still waiting for the welder to be able to find time to come.

Re: Buster

Nice find!

I was wondering about our roof vent too. I have thought about putting a vent fan in it's place, but haven't decided for sure yet.

Re: Buster

We found the bus in a local salvage yard. It was being used as storage. But the engine is very sound--although won't go over 55 miles an hour.
