3m super 77 will hold for a short while and then fail. Its primary use is for crafts, not upholstery. It is also not satisfactory for gluing in foam insulation--been there, done that. Hope this helps. Jack

THANKS for the heads up!! I read about it in a forum about headliner, hosted by car professionals. I'm boggled...

After all my pondering and attempts to figure out the seat upholstery, I opted for slip covers. I made these slide over the back and bottom like pillow cases, with the excess tucked in the fold.

Tomorrow we install them!

Just a quick update, as we get this bus back together. Take a look at our Before and Now! With the kids' seats in place, and the futons/beds in, we have managed to keep the windows unobstructed and still have room for 6 to sleep. Yessss! Next step is to figure out the electrical and the teeny tiny kitchen unit. It turns out we have more room left for that than we imagined...

Ok, just updating this for future builders, in case people want to follow along with our build. We used the format over at Instructables to blog the process, rather than detail it in sections here at Skoolie.
Go see our final result! Convert a washed up shuttle bus into the ultimate Family Adventure MobileConvert a washed up shuttle bus into the ultimate Family Adventure Mobile
