Insulation questions.

First of all, whatís the best insulation. My buddy has bunch of r22, half inch , silvery stuff i am thinking of buying for cheap and doubling up on. I am leaving the air conditioning units in... question is, should I remove them to insulate behind them, or is it a safe bet to let them there, and frame out around them? Also, what kinda of method did u use for doors. Just extra rubber in between to make sure thereís NO air that can escape/ enter? Also gonna cover some windows. Wondering what people have done with that. WS thinkingís just blocking them off with thin plywood and insulating behind them . And maybe covering with sheet metal on the outside. Also maybe just black spray paint from inside tho not sure if thatís completely necessary . ALSO, wondering what people use to insulate floors. I am currently getting down to plywood floors and going to rip the up then. Once Iím down to metal floor, do yíall reccomend filling the holes from all the bolts? Still working on getting these bolts and metal tracks out. They are a pain in the ass! Alright, I probably have more questions but any feedback is very gratefully appreciated ! Thanks everybody

You don't want a bunch of tiny holes open to water ingress, so yes, all the holes need to be covered in one way or another. Once you get the plywood up I'm sure you'll have some rust to be concerned with, which will make filling the bot holes a minor job.

I'm going through the same issues. I used metal from the ceiling to patch larger holes in the floor. I framed the floor with 2x2's, 2x3's, used 1-1/2 insulation, moister protection, then 3/4 plywood. If you go to my pictures you will see what I used to do most of the floor.
