Hi ,
here is a part of the work on the insulation of the bus

I opted for an unusual coating, recycled rubber, at the base we put this under the machine washed, it's sturdy and it dampens vibrations with the advantage of being micro ventilated

the original coating will be placed on top
the gain is significant in terms of rolling noise, engine and also in terms of thermal somewhat.

here is the product

Wow, interesting project. I would love to be able to read these posts but I do not speak French. Could one of you younger, tech savy folks do an instantaneous translation of all the narrative? Thanks.

Thanks for the translation work. Your English is fine. Nice work, although I disliked seeing all that beautiful wood on the interior panels covered in camo.

Hi !
I therefore continue my war paintings, I recall here that it is an old bus chartered with helicopters with the 1st registration,
so I wanted to get as close as possible to what he was, or could have been.
so each painted element is not really very important a backtracking will always be possible although I do not believe it at all!

it lacks camouflage version so by small touch you will tell me if yes or if not
before

after
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


then it's the turn of the interior layout that I want to modify in order to be able to be in the currency:
"ready everywhere and for everything"
so why ? quite simply because in meeting sleeping in the bucket with the camouflage net only it is average!

a snap-off style carabiner
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


a leather strap

foldable marine plywood

I will demonstrate the handling

this was tested with a friend weighing 110 kilos;
well ok he was taller and therefore these feet exceeded me no I am 1.79m
but he will therefore sleep in the dumpster and that's it!
