Well I finally took the time to find my way back in here, I'll be adding a few new photo's and updates I'm working again, after deciding to finish this project. This past weekend my son Joe and I put the refrigerator in. The side entry through the drivers side kitchen window worked out and will be the same option for installing the oven/stove and counter top. Blogger has changed so I'll have to figure out the new format and process for posting photos.

I've been busy with sanding walls and prepping walls and starting with the wall paper.
This view I've put some insulation wrap over the windows to help with cooling the temps have been in the 100's
Looking to the rear. With the outside temps hot this insulation wrap helped keep the temps in the low 70's with just one AC running.
This spot is where the refrigerator goes.
Looking to the front!
From the bathroom all of the ceiling panels are in and satisfactory. Whew!
This will be a hanging closet and drawer, there will be a double door that swings out for access.
In the bedroom this is the start of the closet and drawers. The cut out is the backup camera.
Another view of the bedroom.
Looking into the bathroom
Shower, the next project after the wall paper is finished will be the ceramic tile floor and shower in both kitchen and bathroom.

This is the adhesive that I used. This worked great. 3M 08090 (its called Trim adhesive) but 3M enginers said use this for the ceiling panels! I found the best prices at Summit Racing at $16.95 per can (19 oz).
This ceiling panel project has been more than I could have ever imagined! I didn't want the ultra leather to sag or wrinkle, it has been a project. Stretching the ultra leather on the table and securing it to the table, eliminated any problems.
Another view of the ceiling tiles. Once the adhesive is applied then I had the boxes and let the panel sit for about 4 hours. I've learned that the secret to contact adhesives (other than using the correct one) is that clamping or weighing the panel down is the key!
I'm still working on ceiling panels and have been for the last 6 weeks. I was having trouble with the adhesive I was using, three different types of adhesives until I finally found the correct one from 3M. That snazzy frig in the background is for the bus! Those boxes of tile are used to press the adhesive and bonding surfaces, each box weighs 50lbs.

I've framed the closet in the bedroom, I have two windows in the bedroom to finish trimming out! Plus the extension of the return air duct. Then I have 3 ceiling panels in the bedroom and I'm finished with the ceiling. The next thing on the list is sanding walls, then seizing them for the wall paper, after that its time to lay the tile. I've got all of the trim wood and need to make a trip to Cincinnati for the cabinet grade plywood.
The only 120VAC wiring left to do is in the bedroom, two receptacles and one switch!
Notice the foam in the front cap area, I also refoamed above the ceiling around each heat pump for sound insulation, plus insulation for the entry door.
I failed to mention the new hanging light over the dinette, Mission style stainglass......these are 30watt incadescent lamps there are 3 bulbs......in this photo only one bulb is lit! The LED AC load is around .7 amps with 13 lamps on.
All of the ceiling panels in the living room and kitchen area are in. Plus all of the new LED lamps are working this picture is taken with out a flash, at 10pm in the evening. I have dimmers for the LED lamps........I'm very satisfied with the Cree LED's.

The white objects are a couple of christmas tree fastners and on the right is one of the AC vents, they rotate 360 degrees.......
Down the passenger's side.
Another view, my upholstery is getting better as I progress through the bus..........
Looking forward, the plywood on the ceiling is for cabinet supports overhead.
This wire hanging down will be for a hangin ceiling light fixture over the dinning table.
Looking down the drivers side. I haven't installed the LED bulbs in these fixtures yet, I'll probaby install the 3 way switches later this afternoon after the Daytona 500.....
Looking down the passenger side, I haven't installed the AC Vents yet, that is the empty hole in the ceiling.
I've been working on the ceiling panels. One left in the living room. These are held up with christmas tree fastners, and they work great!!!!

Turbo vent for the grey and black tank taken from the ground.....not as noticeable as I thought it would be!
Turbo vent for the fresh water tank! This works pretty good so far.
