I'm using panels from old coffee vending machines that I got for nothing. They are not a galvinized metal. I think they are about as think as the bus body itself. I'm cutting them to fit in from the inside and then bolting them in place and spot welding the top so they are in nice and tight. I am also calking them up good using an indoor outdoor calk. I saw another user here do this basic style on their bluebird. So i figured that was the best way for me.

I went to a sheet metal business and got some metal that was textured dull so that it could be painted. I attached it to the frames with JB weld that you can get at automotive shops or Lowe's or Home Depot. I also used JB weld putty to seal the outside. If you clean the metal it sticks like a weld. Then caulk to seal it further. The panels including cutting them to fit cost a couple of hundred bucks.
