Bus Conversion Update #3 Sneak Peek of the New Floor and a Short Info Video on Gulmite Screws

 

As we work around the clock this week crunching to get the bus road ready for her first festival (Desert Hearts, in Southern California), we haven’t forgotten about sharing the journey with you!  We have many updates and eye candy in the works and (finally) a (short) new update for now. As of this morning the floor boards are all installed and we have carpet waiting to go in as soon as we seal up the floor.  Before and After photos are forthcoming, we promise! Hope you enjoy the small peek at some of our work so far.  For anyone else out there with a crown bus, you may find the video helpful as it shows how we were able to remove the proprietary Gulmite Screw that uses a special tool and bit to work.  This specific tool is around $80 if you can find it, as they no longer make them anymore.  (thanks to Mr. Sharkey for all this initial info!)

  1. Did adding the insulation to the floor cut down on engine noise a lot while driving? After all your flooring was added, what is the height from the floor to the center of the roof? Great blog!

    • Thank you for the comment! The noise has definitely been cut down drastically, especially after covering and insulating the wheel wells. The subfloor that we replaced the original with is not much thicker but then we put liner and reclaimed wood down which added more height and insulation. The distance from floor to center roof is about 6ft. I can measure and get you a specific figure.
