Ok, now here is an update.

There are no more seats in the bus, the floor painted rust-oleum and the insulation with a plywood delivered...

What i want to say... IT WAS F!@#$KING a lot of SH#TY work!))

I've read here that the seats removing is a pain in the ass, but it is nothing compare to rubber floor removing!!

half of a screws just got broken the moment you start to unscrew them!
So in the end in most cases i just force-pulled them out)

The rubber is sticked with glue to the floor and sometimes it takes a lot of scratch-work to remove it.

Anyway... we did it))) And tomorrow will be maintaining new floor with deadening sound subfloor..


I'll show you what it will be.

P.S. Still looking for insurance that will insure our DreamBus and will be grateful for the help

And some pic

Nice job on gutting it. Some of us had plywood under the rubber and it was much easier!

Progressive will cover you with a commercial policy for private use. I talked to them 2 weeks ago as I almost bought another mvp.....

I think it was 600 for 6 months with a $300,000 limit.

Look up the company AIS (auto insurance specialists), I was able to get a commercial for private use policy on our bus for around 500 a year. Its with progressive as well. AIS was a super easy company to deal with and we had insurance within about 15 minutes of giving them a call.
