What's up everyone, it's been awhile so I figured I'd give an update on what I've got going in these next few weeks. I got the paint job done and even though I sprayed my sheet metal with OSPHO, I still got some rust going thru the paint. But I'll get it fixed in these next couple weeks. I installed the RV windows and they turned out pretty good. My next project is gonna be insulation. I plan on using tongue and groove wood for the interior walls, and I'm trying to figure out why people feel the need to frame their walls with wood 12's? Why not screw the tongue and groove directly onto the metal ribs? There's plenty of pre-drilled holes already and I dont want to make my ceiling any lower than it already is. I also wanted to ask you guys if you think I'm going to run into any issues with my idea for a roof rack. I wanted to try to fabricate my roof rack with my bus old ceiling panels. They are metal and have holes in them. I was going to screw 2 panels together to make and 8'10' and use angle iron as the ribs and support. Let me know what u guys think if I will run into any issues in the future or if you have any questions in general. Thanks 1533325105093.jpeg1533325124877.jpeg1533325143938.jpeg1533325282510.jpeg1533325307761.jpeg1533325378169.jpeg1533325428630.jpeg1533325556780.jpeg

Most who use wood secured to the ribs for securing the ceiling pieces usually secure the wood to the side of the rib and not on top to keep from loosing head room. Some say securing directly to the ribs will cause the hardware to rain inside the bus from condensation, I think this is an exaggeration.
