My build placeholder - International 3800 DT466 - Minneapolis

Starting my build.

77 passenger, removed all seats, striped and recycled
Looking at floor next. 1/2 inch foam, with laminate flooring on top. I'm planning on adding my framing over the flooring, instead of directly to the metal floor.

Also wondering if I should go with 50amp or 30amp. If the cost is roughly the same and 50amp gives that much more capacity, then I'm leaning towards 50amp, but would love any advice.

Flame on!

Thanks!

Steven

From what I've read on here and other forums - you are better to avoid laminate as water can still get trapped beneath it. Unless you have locking sealed stuff made to withstand spills and moisture.

Sweet engine and length!

Floor going in

I can't figure out how to post an in-line photo using Google Drive. I have to say, I hate Imgr, photobucket, etc...

Oh well, I'll continue to post my links back to my Bus folder on Google Drive.

Laid down 1/2 rigid, 1/2 inch plywood and now adding click-laminate.

Linking from Drive takes extra work I think. This is how I do it. There might be an easier way, but I don't know what it is.

Format your link like this (where XXXXXXXX is the file ID of your picture):
Code:
http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=XXXXXXXX
So the link for the photo you linked to in your above post looks like:
Code:
http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=0B2f6E1odWzhYNzN6QzlQTDliTzg


Sometimes they come out sideways, I don't know why, but I think its random and happens with all the sharing services occasionally??? Someone else may know that answer.
