Im using a Thetford cassette toilet, so no black tank, only grey underneath bus. My fresh tanks 2x33gal will be under bed to prevent freezing. I love the look of the smooth FRP there!(closer pics of that bathroom wall available? Like how you sealed joints) Hope to find something like that in glossy grey. I do need to go back and look at Roach's set up.....cant find it now. lol. Anywho keep up the nice work. More ideas for me to steal
Just out of curiousity, what where you interior dimensions? 7widex16long(rear wall to driver seat back) seems about avg for these shuttles. Thnx again

So yeah mine is 7.5 wide and 13 long and 6'6" tall that's what I love about the shuttle. So I just glued the heck out of the FRP to the walls with are all solid 3/4 plywood. I used a really good tub and shower silicone for all of the joints. Just make sure all your surfaces are super clean before you run your bead. I deal with a lot of FRP in commercial kitchens and I find that is the best process. Ohh and a real good sharp set of sheet metal shears cut it really nice.

For sure Liquid Nails makes a FRP specific adhesive and 3m is also a good brand. Might be a little harder to come by.

So I did some repair on the sheet metal under the stairs the ply and flooring. Built all the cabinets then made the doors to fit. Lots of failed attempts at the doors. Next paint.
