I use hand pump weed sprayers that make a fine mist for spraying rust converter chemicals.

Spray in the evening when it's cooling off outside to prevent the chemical from drying too fast. The longer it stays wet, the better it works.

^very good advice. I don't even think of spraying or applying any in the heat of the day. Gets REALLY hot here!

View from the back looking out the rear emergancy exit, now were going to figure how to put a screen in it at a later date. Anyone done something like that? Oh well it was a nice break for a moment or two. I think it would be very nice to pop that back window open when camping, our bed will be back there

Yes it a 7500 watts diesel, i think they are rated for 10k hours +. It is only a 120 x 120 volt. Two legs but in phase, so no 240 volts output of the unit. It is nice and quiet, and we will insulate the compartment to reduce the noise even further. I will have to check to see if we can put a second muffler on it. I want it very quiet. New they run 8-10K, used around 3-4K. Nice unit from what I researched. And it fits between the front rails of the bus. if there was not a front crossmember there, I would have rigged up a slide to come out the front to work on it if needed.

The last post with pics did not load correctly and it was late (for me at least), but the others seem to work correctly and I am on a different computer from the one I posted with. I added the Pics as attachments, is this the correct way to do it?

There is no correct way....

However, this site has massive issues with being reliable.

Photo Bucket on the other hand is almost flawless at hosting and showing pics.

This is why I keep telling people not to host pics here. It's just not reliable.

Took down the roof panels, only around 15 screws stripped out, drilled them and used the trusty hammer and chisel to remove. used a long chisel to remove from the side, they "popped" right out.

We plan on reusing the roof panels, after dropping the roof an 1'' for spray in insulation and covering in Luann. The panels supposedly help reduce sound, do not know how it will work butted up to Luann under it.

grinding the backs off the rivets above the rain-guard in preparation for the skinning over the windows. we then used a punch and the hammer to knock the rivets out through the front.



We got a deal on 10ft x 3ft Galvanized 18 gauge sheet metal, to skin over the windows. Good thing is little waste with this size.

First panel put on, it was the smallest, and we started from the back and work towards front to have the panel overlap correct. It took us a while to get this panel up and figure everything out. I left the panel a little too long, right above the rub rails; and cut it down some for a better fit.

Used some solar seal 900 between the panel and the posts for a waterproof seal. I used to use this when I did metal roofing, owner swore by it and he is one the most recommended metal roofer in our area with 40+ years in business.
