No rust is what matters.

I used a 2 inch pump from the pond to wash all the remaining fiberglass insulation out of the bus after the demo. This prevented me from having to deal with all that nasty itchy fiberglass dust.

A pressure washer would do the same.

Disposable Tyvek coveralls also help if the fiberglass bats have turned to dust like they did in my bus.

Mine fold under the window as well. I ended up using a RotoZip tool to cut them out and then going over the cut with the angle grinder.

You can see the panel has been partially cut:



You can see the cut edge in this pic:

I have medical reasons why I wear sandals. I make no apologies.
His are almost a shoe. But yeah, kiddos- wear shoes or better yet boots.

I live in work boots. In today's age, work boots are lighter, and more comfortable than any other foot ware I can buy. Also no matter what life throws at me, I'm ready for anything. If a massive storm crumbles buildings, I have the right foot ware to pull people from the wreckage without harming my feet.

A week ago I was first on scene to a barn fire that threatened over a dozen other property's, and countless lives. Myself and a friend were able to battle the flames and got the fire under control before the fire department got there. Without my boots, I would have been no use to anyone.

If I have sex during the day, my boots stay on. With my boots, I'm ready for anything. Just like it was in the Canadian armed forces. Your feet must come first.

I'm either in work boots during the day or Birkenstocks after work. Life is to short to wear uncomfortable shoes!
