Catibus-The Tailgater

Hello Everyone
As with some other newbies, Iíve folllowed along others on this site to learn and get inspired. Thank you all for that. My hubby and I are from Kentucky and are huge Kentucky Wildcats fans. Weíve been tailgating for several years and Iíve always wanted to enhance the tailgating experience. So naturally I thought a Skoolie would be perfect to convert. So for the past couple of years Iíve been casually searching and just a few months ago I found the perfect fit! 1994, Chevy G30 Ceiling height is 6í6Ē so itís perfect! Low miles, ready to start!!

The first step for us was removing the old flooring.

Next step was cleaning the floor, welding some reinforcement plates in areas where the floor was weak, and plugging the holes.

The next step was brushing on the bed liner coating before building the subfloor

Thanks Sherry...but most of what you'll learn from me is what NOT to do.

Don't listen to him Sherry.....he's a problem solver AND an artiste, which is exactly the type of person I want to learn from.
