I really appreciate the offer Chili but I'm up at 4:30am every morning during the week so my bed time is usually 9:30pm. I've planned on a year and a half to get the conversion done so I'm in no hurry. Plus I retire at the end of December so I'll have 5-6 days a week to work on it then . Slow and steady wins the race.

Hey Christopher, if your doors are the way I think they are watch this YouTube vid. This guy mounted a security deadbolt on his bi-fold doors. Start at the 1:42 time mark to go straight to the lock photos. Hope this helps. All in all this guy did a great job on his bus all by himself. If you have free time all his vids are worth watching.

Made lots of progress today. Got the ceiling completely removed and folded in half to transport to the dump.. Those panels are about 40 pounds apiece and made of steel. Makes perfect sense to have that kind of construction to keep the kids safe in an accident and or rollover. Next is to remove all that useless and nasty fiberglass insulation.

Thought the surveillance system was interesting. Must have had some bad kids riding that bus since they needed to videotape them. Too bad the VHS recorder wasn't older, I could have sold it as an antique....lol.

Can you tell if you've got that black tar roof adhesive coating?

I was going to look and then completely forgot to do it yesterday. I'll get to it next Saturday when I go back to the bus. If I do I'm not sure if I'll go to the trouble of removing it. I may just put the poly-iso insulation right over it.

Hey looks great! We've got similar construction and haven't had a problem with adhesive on ours.
Are you planning on removing the windows behind your countertops? How tall are they?
