Your insulation looked thicker than what I've seen in the past. I've always heard that the 600bf package does about 1/2" deep on walls and ceilings.

I'm planning to foam insulate my floor from underneath which should be a sticky job, then insulate the walls and ceilings like you have. With the 1000 bf package I can err on the side of excess like usual.

Nice work, I enjoy your time lapse videos.

Thanks should have the video of it up tonight. It helps to have a shorter bus as well.

Good luck with that. Prep work would be a PIA!!

GLAD to be DONE with the prep work! It had to be done. Set me back several months, though.

Your going to spray under as well? I can only imagine trying to clean everything under there.

Spray?? I've painted it all if that's what you mean.
Insulation will be after the raise and windows.

I have no idea what it takes to insulate from underneath. I've seen a photo of a floor insulated from underneath once, and that didn't look like it was done with a spray foam kit. Getting soaked doing one good pressure wash of the underfloor is about all I'm willing to do. I think the foam should stick ok as long as there's no mud or oil. I've never done this before so I'm always open to suggestions.
If you've ever installed a brick venere, you remember the small ties that they nail in to the wall to hold the brick to the wall. I was thinking of affixing something to the underside of the floor, prior to spraying with foam, that would provide extra support if the foam did eventually separate from the floor over time. Haven't figured that part out yet.

ive often wondered how much insulating factor you would gain if you were to line-X or herculine underneath the bus... I know spraying a Jeep tub with spray-on bedlining like that seemed to help with cold and hot.. maybe would give some insulating and rust protection factor to the under body of a bus..

Ya I would imagine a good pressure wash or a few would be in order. From what I understand of the product the surface needs to be quite clean for it to adhere. Robin do you plan to do the whole underside or just the rear?

I would not have enough room to apply it it from the rear tires forward. It would get everywhere it shouldn't.

I also would want to have something to protect it from the elements. But I totally think that spray foam then line-x over the spray foam would be bomb.

I do wonder just how much line-x or something similar would help with noise and insulation just by itself.


Got a time lapse of the ceiling install.
