Re: The "Behemoth" comes to life....

Did some more ceiling work today... This section is over the drivers seat...



And also over the entry door...



More images posted on my site... Did most of the bedroom ceiling too, except the center section due to pending a/c move...

Re: The "Behemoth" comes to life....

Well, I actually WAS hoping to be aboard by Christmas, but it looks like perhaps early spring now. I've already set my Travel Trailer up for the winter, so I'll just plug away at the bus until the weather warms. This will give me time to get all the trim work done. I also have to get underneath of it and finish the cargo bay...something I started and never finished... Though it is very close and to be honest it's usable as it is right now, there is still a lot left to do!!

I used Sani-Lite on the bathroom ceiling... (that textured stuff they use for bathroom walls etc...) I'm kind of wishing I had used this stuff on the entire ceiling...it went in nicely. I still need to trim it out...

Yes it does, and it bends nicely into the curve of the ceiling too!!

Everything looks fantastic! That FRP board does go up nicely. Looks very clean. All your oak trim looks great.

Hey Cliff, is that the stuff that is sold in the big box stores (i.e. Home Depot)?

I know I'm not Cliff, but I've seen it down the "paneling aisle" at Home Depot, between their Lumber and Millwork departments (at least at the Home Depot here.)

Thanks ShortBus, just wanted to confirm that it was the same stuff. Never knew the name of the stuff, besides FRP.

Wow, that's robbery. I seriously would have guessed around $8-12 a sheet, $15 tops. It probably costs them about $4 or $5 to make one. Oh well, nothing new I guess. The prices for just about everything are going up if they weren't already ridiculous to begin with. Probably further ahead dumpster-diving for a lot of the materials we use in our buses.
Believe it or not, I think that is the only thing that hasn't gone up in Home Depot. That's been the price for, at least, three years, that I know of.

Boy, that sure stinks.
