  9. Ok so today.. Started on the windows.

    Went for the centre side one first...
    And i shattered it!
    With the help of my dad we managed to get the two rears in, the centre side (was the sliding door window) and the windscreen.

    Then decided to pull the poptop out of the spare room and lift it on.

  10. Hi carl, just reading your post and it's really interesting. Im currently stripping my bus ready to do the interior and was wondering if you could clarify the exact products you used on the interior as after reading numerous posts I'm a tad confused!! Did you paint with waxoil? Was it the dodo stuff next? Is that sound proofing? Or insulation? Or is that the closed cell stuff? Is it hard to get it in the gaps behind where the door cards go? TIA!
     
  11. Hi, its just paint in there and then i used dodo mat to stick on the panels. Its easy enough to fit in the gaps, as you have to cut it to shape.
    The silver stuff is just cheap thermal foil bubble wrap from ebay, about £20 a roll. Then 9mm ply base to fill the sunken floor, then i have a 3mm top sheet to cover the entire floor.
    I'm going to spray waxoyl into the bottom of behind the door cards before i fit them.
     
  12. Thanks carl - so you put sound proofing dodo matting on first and then heat insulation foil after?
     
  13. Dodo mat on the toof and sides,
    Only thermal foil on the floor, no dodo mat.
    I may put some more thernal insulation on the dodo mat behind the doors, but not sure yet tbh.

  16. So the dash top is in, and the plastic air tubes underneath.
    Wipers are on, headlights are wired up and in. Also made a start on the wiring in the engine bay, its a bit of a mess.
    Also the rear lights are in.
    1 rear quater panel id in along with the spare wheel and cover.
