Thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately, I can't say much about the Gillig walls but it should be fairly easy to tell. If you have a chair rail and the walls are divided into a top and bottom piece, I would be highly suspect. I can't be sure, but this picture
suggests you might have that same problem. But again, I know nothing about Gilligs.
Note that on my bus the bottom part of the wall actually goes underneath the steel floor of the body, not just the rubber and plywood, so it shouldn't matter too much which order you go. That said, I'd say do the floors first regardless of your wall situation. Floor demolition is messy, and the fewer crevasses wood and dirt can slip into the better.
Your bus looks awesome! I'll be following along on your build.
