Re: Our Second Bus

Okay here goes. This is a picture of what we did to those window spaces. I have never used so much silicone in my life as we have on the bus, so far!

Re: Our Second Bus

More pics. Here hubby is getting ready to put the panel together. First, he cut Wolmanized plywood to fit the window space, then he glued Wolmanized plywood to FRP, then he routed the FRP to fit the plywood. Fit like a glove, cheap, and looks good.

Re: Our Second Bus

My first attempts at window tinting ever. Not bad, huh! I didn't say I was good at it!

Back wall of the shower. Don't you love those pink studs? They are hard as concrete!

Re: Our Second Bus

What's with the pink studs? I have never seen pink lumber before. Is it a special type or did you just paint them to make them more waterproof around the shower area?

One of the tricks that I learned working in a shop that does tinting is that other than getting the windows absolutely clean, the edges are the next hardest part. If you end up with an edge that you dont like or can't get flush to the edge, just use some 1/4" black pinstriping and go around the outside of the window to hide the edge of the tint. This can be applied to the outside of the window and helps fix small mistakes in trimming.

Re: Our Second Bus

Is the pink similar to that Yellawood stuff? Treated wood? All I can get around here for treated wood is the nasty green pressure treated lumber. I don't trust the chemicals in that stuff in an indoor envirmonment. Never know what is leaching out in your living space.

Re: Our Second Bus

The pink studs come that way from Temple-Eastland Lumber Mill. We bought them at the Lowe's here. They are regular 2x4's. Not treated. Just plain studs. I don't know why they are pink. Maybe a woman owns the company!
