If you'd like to check it out...I've uploaded episode 25 to my channel.

Very inspirational video!
Thanks for sharing.


You sprayed like a pro, have you done it before?

Tell us about your welder & pneumatic pop riveter...

I had a little flux core Campbell Hausfeld 110v welder I loved! Super handy and nimble for 14 gauge stuff. I also welder 2x2x1/4" angle to my utility trailer years ago and it's held up better than the factory weld from Razorback trailers!

The welder is a Lincoln 110v unit using Argon gas, sold through MAC Tools, I purchased it probably about 12 years ago. It's been really great and have completed many many projects without fail. It'll definitely be on board with me while traveling.

The pneumatic pop riveter is an 89 dollar cheapy from harbor freight. Some things from harbor freight work pretty good for a while if not put into everyday hard usage. I figured it would work pretty good with the small amount of pop style rivets I was using and if it held up (which it did) I'd probably have some other projects I could use it on. It sure beats pulling steel rivets by hand!

Now your just showing off! I love your work well thought out. Did you ever consider trying to make the wheel wells go away in the build. I have 9" from tire to bottom of the inside of the wheel well. I'm thinking it cant have half that in wheel travel. And what ever else distance it needs to clear the flat floor wheel well could be done with a lift kit blocks and longer brackets on the air bags. new shock brackets. Upfront as well to keep it level. Getting u bolts made would be no problem.

I saw one bus get the wheel well cut in half height wise is what Got me thinking I could do this.

Just curious I need to remove the rear wheel wells for my project so the floor is completely level.

Great video of the spray foam! That pro spray goes on so much nicer than the DIY 2-part kits. It surely helps that the operator has hours of experience under his belt as well. When I did my bus with the DIY kit (I used firring strips in the same way you did, btw) I ended up with far more waste than you seem to have. It does the job, though!

whats the cost difference between the DIY kit and a pro doing it. the difference in the rigidly of the chassis and noise going down the road must be stellar.
