Time spent working on a bus can not be deducted from life
I too am still having a blast working on the bus. Most my major stuff is done so now it is a lot of organizing stuff to find where it fits best... kind of bus Tetris.

The pics with the seat remind me what great space these have, a blank canvas.

Ok so I have finished for the day. I have one wall gutted, the
ceiling, and the top half of another wall. I find it odd Wayne didn't run the wiring in the hole in the frames on the top of the walls.

Worked all weekend on the bus. Pulled up the flooring found rust from the leaky windows. Any tips on sealing bus windows would be awesome. I pulled the first five windows on each side that we are keeping and sealed them. Two still leak. I think they are leaking from the top under the drip edge. I will be removing this and sealing it next weekend. I have to get the leaks fixed before I can attack the floor.

After a short business trip I'm back at it.





I hate those factory rivets.

more to come tomorrow. I have 9 days off of work and I am devoting my mornings to the conversion.

Well after a productive morning I have been able to delete 7 windows on the STBD side of the bus. The only thing remaining is to finish caulking the front five windows, and to cleanup and reinstall the drip edge/ rubrail. I used the old sheet metal from the old ceiling I removed from inside. Wayne made it easy using full length metal panels. I was hesitant to use them due to the tectured surface however when it Is painted with the ruberized paint it will be hardly noticeable. I also decided to seal and paint the outside of the bus before moving to the interior. I have some leaks that needed to be resolved before I started patching the floor and insulating.

Looks good, what did you use for the metal? Sorry if you already stated it somewhere
