Re: Project Niles Skoolie

April 2 Update:

Cleaned the rest of the floor, repaired some small holes and primed and painted floor.


Framed in the supports for the new floor and welded them all in



Sheet metal and seam sealed the top. Next steps will be to finish plywood and the new doghouse mount.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Thanks! I absolutely dislike welding so close to the fuel tank. I had done a lot of research about the flammability of diesel compared to gasoline and felt a little better knowing that it takes a lot to ignite it. Sooooo glad that's done!

Decided to painted it tonight.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Moving right along now, kind of working on a few things at the same time.

1) finished the floor in the driver \ passenger area and now building the seat bases


2) Purchased the furniture for the front. we spent the last 2 months shopping playing with layouts etc and came up with this. Sofa couch that's day bed style and a low profile desk with 2 ottomans under the desks to use with the couch or as desk seating. Really happy how it turned out... Its starting to feel like its coming together.





Wainscoting the side walls today and laying laminate flooring so should have another update in the next day or 2

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

You guys really are doing a great job! The wall looks very nice, as does the couch. The couch pictures really show how m much space is in there!
