Started on the ceiling installation today. Finished up about a third of it before calling it a night. Might be able to finish it up tomorrow.

If you tape your seams with foil tape in that insulation, it'll work a whole lot better.

The ceiling boards are doing a good job holding the insulation in. Made more progress today. One more day ought to finish it up.

Finished the ceiling and the trap door for the air horn. I figured I would need access to the air horn switch and mounting bolts at some point.

Removed the remaining seat tracks and ripped up the flooring where the living quarters will be (16.5' long). There isn't too much rust to deal with so will probably use Ospho to treat it. We only live about 1/2 mile from the town transfer station so I simply drove the bus up the road to dispose of the plywood and rubber flooring once it was all removed.

Next step will be to finalize and mock up the layout before laying down the insulation and sub-floor.

The floor has been painted and I filled in the bolt/screw holes with windshield goop. The furring strips are going in now.

We're not letting Mother Nature slow us down. This weekend I installed a dead bolt on the rear door, key lock on the outside and twist knob on the inside. I should also be able to complete insulating the walls with 2" foam board. Looks like a blizzard out right now so good thing I took the bus to Home Depot yesterday. It still has steer tires on all positions so we have to plan our supply runs around the road conditions. Hopefully we'll get good drive tires in a few weeks.

My wife and I painted the bus this week, inspired by the 1969 movie The Italian Job.
