It is October 9, and I have made a little progress on the bus. I have the seats out. I have the floor taken up and the upper wall panels are gone. The fiberglass insulation in the walls are gone. I am down to the metal floor. It is rustier than I had hoped, but it could be worse.
The section immediately in front of the rear wheel wells has been patched. Another section piece was screwed on from the bottom without removing the upper one that was rusted badly.
The walls behind the fiberglass are generally pretty good, but there is some rust in a few places:
The inner surface appears to be galvanized, with the black being rubberized undercoating used to seal around the bolts holding the rub rails on the outside. I am unsure what to do after I wire brush the rust off. Should I paint it with rusty metal primer, galvanized primer, or more and better applied undercoating?
I am going to put foam board in the space. Should it be glued to the wall (with the bolts pressed into it) or left unfastened? If glued what should I use to glue/seal it?
I should be done with wire brushing the floor and walls tomorrow if all goes well, then on tp the painting. then patching the holes in the floor.
After the floor the next step is that I need to figure out how to take the windows out and seal around them to stop their leaking.
