I have painted many pieces of equipment, etc for him on a contract basis, and i think i paint with a roller those parts that will be hard to mask off, from now on.

Are you going to paint the top blue?

Thanks for your pics, rick
I'm going for something like this.

Re: The Freedom Bus

All the seats I'm removing are gone!

Today I used some scrap wood I had laying around to make a kitchen counter. I'll finish it off later and add cabinet doors & drawers. I'll add a real fresh water tank and put it and the pump in the cargo bay below the sink. Right now I'm just using a cheap pump from harbor freight but it seems to work pretty good. I'm going to hard wire it to the battery and add a toggle switch near the sink.

Re: The Freedom Bus

I'm mocking up the different areas & taping them off to get an idea of space.

Looks like you're making progress. Can't wait to get to that stage myself!

Re: The Freedom Bus

I used magnetic hooks to hang moving blankets as temporary partition walls for the bedroom.

Re: The Freedom Bus

The area on the right is where the TV, stereo & computer will be.

Re: The Freedom Bus

Magnetic hooks would be a good idea for partitioning off the bus if you have the table saw or something in it while working.
