Iím in the demo phase of my skoolie still. We got the floor painted and good to go for insulation and I just finished stripping the ceiling. Now Iím onto the walls. My walls donít have that normal flexible silver material Iíve seen in other buses. Mine is hard cream white colored steel thats riveted all the way down. .
How should I go about demoing these for future spray foam? Iíve heard the chair rails are structural so I donít want to mess with that. How do you get the insulation out though?
Thanks in advance!
Looks fairly standard and maybe has just been painted. Air hammer in the center pin of the rivet, then use an air chisel with a sharpened tip to sheer the rivet off. You'll probably need to remove the windows to get the top off where it folds under the window. I've seen other builds take sheet metal scissors (harbor freight has some cheap electric ones) and just cut the metal off below the windows instead of taking them out as a shortcut.
