I'm wondering if I should just pull out the insulation from the upper half, put in the new blue insulation board I was planning and then frame a wall over the lower and upper half? If I did that, the wall would be about 2 inches out from the wall to go over the chair rail lip. Otherwise I guess I could find someone locally who had something to cut just the lip portion off and leave the bottom half for structural support? I want to use FRP panels for the walls for easy clean up. I'm going to use commercial vinyl squares over plywood for the floor.

Sorry so many typos on the previous post.

Personally I would leave the chair rail in place, first off because like was mentioned before it does add structural strength, and second because you can use it to mount other things inside... I have some seats I got from an old 727 that I'm planning to use the chair rail to connect the back of the platform they will be installed on, which will be hinged at the front so I can use the space underneath for storage, or maybe I will put my water heater and/or water pump under there, depends on how much room there is. But I digress...

You could use it as an anchoring point for cabinets or anything else you want to have in there. Not the sole anchoring point of course, unless it's something that will sit low to the floor, but useful all the same.

No kidding, ready made highway cruiser there.
Kinda odd though to be a local only bus outfitted to cruise long distances at highway speeds.

Miami traffic can be FAST. I'd imagine one would want all the power and speed that could be had to get that thing around down there.
