Making way for my grey water tank and generator by removing the school buses old AC units from underneath Earl. It was a little tricky, but I finally got them out!
It's time for rust treatment! After removing Earl's plywood and rubber floors I was pretty gosh darn ecstatic to find floors with relatively minimal rust considering his age! I treated the floor using JASCO prep & prime to treat the current rust and prep the floors for a layer of Rustoleum rust inhibitor paint!
These walls are FINALLY coming off! With a little help from Big Jack I devised a plan for wall removal
My skoolie's wall removal was way more difficult than I anticipated!
I was wrong about the walls. The floors were the worst. Not the walls. Until tomorrow, when the next thing is the worst. :)
Luckily, I found very little rust underneath my floors. A little surface rust, but that's easily remedied!
These walls are THE WORST. After grinding off precisely 3 trillion rivets, I was expecting the panels to pop right off. My expectations weren't met. These bad boys took way more elbow grease than anticipated!
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!
