Wrapping up the gutting and getting close to actually building things!

Working through these heat waves while gutting the bus has been pretty miserable and exhausting. I keep fantasizing about starting to build all of the amenities we want. What has kept y'all going during the more trying times? Did you end up taking some early trips in your build before it was finished?

We have been posting our updates on our YouTube channel , we would love to hear feedback and comments as we charge ahead.

Why didn't you remove the rivets or screws? That looks about the hardest way to remove ceiling panels.

They look really easy to rip apart. I bet its aluminum.

It was pretty easy to tear apart once we punched through a few areas. Thanks for the compliments on the beard, been trying to keep it out of the way while working.
