Day 124 - Bathroom | School Bus Conversion

The last couple days I have finally had time to work on the bathroom and kitchen sink in the bus.

The first priority was to get the drain for the sink plumbed up so that I could cover the walls in the bathroom. (The drain pipe runs through the bathroom wall.)

Here is the sink with the P-Trap installed.

Here it is on the other side of the (bathroom) wall.

I used 1 1/2" pipe for the drain. I cut through the floor with a hole saw and it worked well even going through the metal floor and a support beam that just happened to be in the way.

Now I was ready for may paneling. A couple of days ago we picked up some supplies from Lowe's.

4 - 3/8" sheets of plywood
4 - Plastic Panels
1 - FRP Glue
1 - Box of 5/8 Screws. Our total was around $130.00

I cut out the plywood to stand vertically so that I would not have any seems only corners.

After verifying that the plywood fit well I took it back out and used it as a pattern for the plastic sheet. The plastic sheets will be the water proof walls on the inside of the bathroom.

Then I took the plywood back in and installed it. Then I applied the FRP Glue and set the panel in place. I used a rubber roller to roll out any excess glue. It worked well.

More soon I hope!
