legault family

Hi to all. Im Daniel and this is my first attempt and building my own skoolie. I have a 97 bb 44 passanger. So far I drove it home from VA and it ran great, 11mpg I was very happy with that! Got it home and started to work, so far I have the seats out, floor up.

Ok. so here is the bus as i got with with all the seats still in.

Got the seats out then I needed to use alittle child labor to remove the rubber floor, it was stuck down alot harder the i thought.

Got that all out ok, no real problems or issues found. got it all sweep out and ready to be wire brushed and painted

Re: legault family

Once I got the floor cleaned up I put two coats of rustolium, and sealed all the holes in the floor.
I used 2x4 and 1 1/2 foam, and 5/8 osb for the floor.
It was a pain getting all the wood in on my own but its all done now!

So now im at a stand still. I need to sheet the windows. I was thinking of using metal flashing attached to plywood with liquid nails. and placed from the inside out, then using angle to keep it tight. The drip edge on the outside of the bus will maked attaching metal to the outside alittle of a problem. If anyone has any ideas let me know! I think ill try a test window soon and see how it goes.
