Bathroom and some of the interior walls completed, all tongue and groove. Bathroom walls nailed in with finishing nails, and the interior bus walls I screwed in directly to the bus frame with self-drilling Teks screws which worked perfectly. Really happy with the results so far, but I'll definitely be painting the walls... just a little too much natural wood for me. Not decided on the wall colors yet though.

Awesome build Matt! Im in the process of converting an E450 as well. Just got my insulation and plywood on the floor and have removed my metal ceiling panels. Now on to cabinets and a wood ceiling. How did you prepare the roof before installing the sunroof? Looks like you may have sanded it or something? And I also second the question where did you get the Tuff-R? Cant find it at any big box stores near me.

@ChiliChzPoopTart @GreenThunder I picked up the Tuff-R from a local Home Depot.

@GreenThunder Thanks! To prep the roof I just cleaned, lightly sanded and primed it. Then I laid down some butyl sealant tape before screwing down the dome.

Finished with the tongue and groove, and as much as I'm digging the look I think I'm still going to paint the walls. The natural wood ceiling, walls and floor would just be too much. Photo below is kind of the theme I'm thinking.

This build is awesome so far. I'm a total new guy to this stuff but I've got the bug.

I noticed you're from Roc, I'm an RIT student. Hope to see this thing driving around town at some point when I get back into the states.

Keep up the good work.

Very impressed with the build! I have my sights on doing exactly this in about a year to two years time with the goal of traveling across the country to do some climbing and mountain biking on a very extended vacation haha. I hope to see the bus in motion soon!

Two questions...

1. What did you use to seal the roof?

2. What kind of spray foam did you use for the gaps in the polyiso? I'm assuming great stuff? That's what I'm planning on using but I'm slightly nervous cause it says not to use it anywhere that will be enclosed.
