As in wall paneling going on top of the strapping, not as the strapping itself. Cheap and decorative. I plan on gluing it to the strapping unless someone more wise would suggest using fasteners for whatever reason.

Ok, yes for finish wall covering, the laminate will work fine.

Great, great build thread, gracias or sharing and the detailed documentation. Belated congrats/welcome to Hunter!

I thought I saw you bought some OSPHO but don't remember reading that you used it anywhere. Did you use it (where if so?) or just the POR 15 products? Just ordered some OSPHO for my bus, wondering if some POR is also in order.

And now a rear engine conversion: W.O.W. Staying tuned.

The oshpo worked great.

However I used it on all my cars and trucks, not the bus.

I treated a bunch of my friends rides too. I need to get more for the bus.

Work on the bus won't start again till next spring.

Nat, what is the brand of the foam flooring your are describing as 2-3000 psi?

And I can't find any rigid insulation that would be suitable for an in-floor radiant heat install. What were you thinking of using?

Are you implying that Nat has been banned? I certainly hope that isn't the case. He was one of the few members with consistently solid building techniques and an active forum presence. Rough around the edges? Sure, but if he has been banned for that reason then that is an indication of a forum community with far too thin skin. Disappointing...

He's just "Traveling", I'm sure he'll be back soon. I don't know what I missed, but I think he and EastCoastCB ticked the wrong someone off.
