Bronte the bus waiting patiently for the big adventure. We've now installed six sliding windows and have been busy completing the wall insulation inside. We've also spent many hours waterproofing the exterior of the bus (it leaked like a sieve) and have applied a waterproof membrane around all glazing and body joints from the windows up. With rain falling since the waterproofing was applied, we're calling it a success. There are no leaks in the bus anymore! On a side note, we've still got to apply some black automotive vinyl to the second last window to cover up the polystyrene insulation that's  inside.

    @wildblueyonderbus We used a Weatherproof Sealer by Gripset Betta (available here in Australia). We have only done around the windows and above the windows where the fibreglass roof meets the side walls. We used the primer first, then applied a ‘peel and seal’ tape to some sections (the vertical spaces between each window) and then applied a couple of coats of Weatherproof Sealer over the top. It looks a little rough in places, but we are planning to cover over this with something else (aluminium strips? tape? a coat of paint?) to finish the job. Happy to be waterproof though!
