Is that IH red? Looks a little brighter, my IH Rustoleum is starting out looking darker. I like this better.

did BGA paint that? they painted my DEV bus and did a really nice job on it. their paint guy is great and the price is comparable with any paint shop..



my DEV bus single stage paint job is holding up better than my red bus base/clear .


great looking bus!

Looking good. I am new here and have a question. Are you going to remove the insulation and replace it with different insulation? trying to understand why. Is it that the original insulation in not good enough?

Doing spray foam closed cell , so I can add new insulation . What's in there now has to be removed so i can make sure everything sealed correctly.

The fiberglass in there from the factory is really good at growing mold and not very good at insulating. Especially when sandwiched between sheets of steel.

Google "insulation" on the forum search, and check out the pictures of what some people have pulled out of their walls. Thin fiberglass insulation + leaky (and/or open) windows + 10 or so years time = Dirty, moldy, matted, useless insulation.
