Sometime two or three useful wires, even!

It was a very productive day today! The holes in the floor got sealed up, using some flashing caulk, some fender fasteners, and some reflectix. The swiss cheese floor got patched with some of the left over galvanized from the rear panels. When done, the seams on the edge were sealed up as well, and the first two foam boards were cut and adhered to the floor! Progress feels very good after 4 months of prep to start building!!

Flashing caulk on a school bus is considered a felony offense.

Uh oh what did I just do? I remember a number of threads talking about using polyurethane caulk for filling holes, which is the type of caulk I found, since silicone can react with galvanized steel. It is what it is at this stage...

Say the product, out loud, putting stress on the first word, and consider it a verb, not a noun...

The last two nights have been highly productive! The last two foam boards were installed, and the first two Advanteck boards. I don't know when we'll get back to it, but two more boards, and I'll finally have a floor, and an insulated one at that!!
