That is impressive! What did it cost per sq/ft? What is the "R" value? That sure looks like the way to insulate! BTW, will it stick to the roof? Thanks

I marked where to cut if I want to... but the insulation inside the engine area covers it anyway. So not sure if I'd ever need to... but I know where to get to it if so.

I took another look and they seal it all up anyway. It's all factory sealed - there's plenty of room to work on the Valves if need be. So I'll not need the access from what I'm seeing.

Got the Beard board going up... I will "Antique" it later once I find the best method. It's just tacked up right now - the trim work will take the waves and bumps out shortly!

Trim up... Kitchen Sink in... also got 25% of the side body sanded down for Primer. Coming along slowly but surely. Certainly a labor of love!
