Van Flip | Ep. 2 | Flooring Insulation


We’ve got a floor people!


Still part of week 1, a big project we took on was trying to figure out how to patch those rust holes we found. After countless youtube tutorials and research we decided to go with a product called Bondo. After just 10 minutes of putting the product on we were super impressed. It was hard as a rock and really easy to use. The rest of the products we used for rust are listed below.

After we had solved our rust problem, now onto installing a floor. We created a template, began to insulate and then onto cutting the plywood.

Long week, small victories.
