Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Day off tomorrow and a concert.

Got the walls emptied, the floor up as well. Everything looks good. Got the drivers area to do yet.



A few questions:

Do I pressure wash the floor?

Anyone with a BB put insulation in their walls. The areas are about 26" wide and 30" deep. Hardly handy for using a 4x8 sheet of foam. Got any slick ways for me to get the most out of my foam boards?? R7 good enough ya think? I am trying not to eat up too much head room with the floor.

By the way, this is what we do that prompted us to get a bus. Hoping to make travel easier:

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Update:
Cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. Taking decals off, gum, grinding some spots on the floor. Putting Ospho on the rusty spots. Getting ready to paint the floor.
Gotta figure out how to get rid of seat frames too. How much Buskote will I need for the top? How much paint for the floor?

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I believe this is the most recent person to have coated a roof. He used Bus Kote:
primer , BK, clear coat
