Photobucket seems to be the favorite, but any image hosting site will do. Here are instructions for linking to photobucket photos.

Re: Jacuzzi bus - a tribute

The motorcycle helmets works great for a combination of eye protection and hearing protection!

Curiosity got the best of me when I removing the rubber linings around the inside edges of the bus. I wanted to just pull a little corner of the flooring up to have a look at the plywood. That turned into tearing up the entire linoleum type floor. Some of the plywood sheets are pretty wet. I was hoping to get straight into applying the wood laminate I bought, but we may have to pull up the wood, treat the metal floor, and put new wood first.

Oh well, can't win em all.

I think that would be wise. If the floor is already wet, and your whole premise for the bus involves pumping hundreds of gallons into the bus at a time, you need to take good care of your floor. And I love the helmet. "Can't find safety glasses? No problem!"

Re: Jacuzzi bus - a tribute

Well we did a bit further inspection of the plywood sheets. They are not as bad as I thought they were with the exception of about two square feet behind the right rear wheel hub. We got heaters on it now hoping to dry it out in a couple days. If it looks like it will be good once it is nice and dry, we will throw a coat of sealant down and then install the flooring.

In the mean time we are going to look at a hot tub in about half an hour. Tomorrow will be an interior paint day. We already did a test spray and am going to pick up some more paint and a new spray gun on our way back from the hot tub place.

Here the final pic of the day.
