Cool Bus Progress-Cut off short bus

We have made a lot of progress since joining the site. Barn siding on the ceiling, cork floor, electrical complete, bed built into a box, installed 2 theater seats, folding table and put the flat bed on and are scheduled for a paint job. We are using bed liner for the exterior paint in budweiser blue trim will be silver. I've added some pictures will upload more later.

That is cool looking. It almost looks like a flatbed trailer behind a shorty. That's a toy hauler now.

Bedliner for the paint? You must have watched that episode of Mythbusters.

Nice work. I love that ceiling.

Thanks! The ceiling took awhile. We started with rolled cork for the ceiling, walls and floor. Next came the insulation and then the barn siding. Siding a curved ceiling takes a lot of patience. We aren't sure what part, or if its a combination of everything, but most outside noise is blocked.

I've heard of people using cork before but I don't understand what the advantage might be. It seems that using an organic substance might cause problems.
