how to remove bus ceilling panels

Ceiling Demolition | Skoolie Bus Conversion Tiny House Videos

Ceilling demolition wasn't my favorite.

First order of bid'nass... removing the screws and rivets that secure the ceiling panels to the roof. For some god foresaken reason, my ceilling panels were held on with a combination of three different types of screws and...*duhn duhn duhnnnnnnn*...rivets. Some screws came out quickly, but some were rusted in or stripped. 

Luckily, this angle grinder saved the day...

While a little intimidating at first, once I got the hang of it I had a frickin' blast grinding these rivets and rusty/stripped screws off. 

I had no idea what I would find behind those ceiling panels. Turns out...lots and lots of fiberglass insulation. That stuff is ITCHY! I definitely recommend long sleeves, gloves, and a cold shower afterward!
