Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

My next question;

Seal the floor holes before paint or after paint?

Silicone or roof tar stuff?

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

i duct taped the holes from the bottom of the bus, then caulked them so the caulk doesnt just fall out, then remove the tape when its dry. I think i used DAP constuction adhesive, worked fine.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Got it.

Under the drivers seat, do I put the 1.5" insulation too, like I will the rest of the floor? Debating whether or not I should. Not sure I want the floor a whole 2.5" higher around that area. Whats the general consensus?

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Someone give me some ideas on hanging a generator off the back bumper of a R/E bus. Of course, it will have to swing or lower.
