  • Gotta love rust repair! "Hey, it's a tiny hole. We'll be done by lunch time." Two days later you have chased that rust hole with the welder half way to the other side of the car and you're looking for two more panels to completely replace because you have discovered more rust under paint. Good job on that patch panel though. Wasn't expecting it to be contoured to match the floor, but makes sense with how large it ended up being. Looks good!

  • @RichRebuilds please note that this silicone stuff you used for caulking the vent was technically the total wrong stuff. At home in your bathroom the temperature differences summer to winter are not big. But parking the van in the summer sun and driving through winter temeratures requires a stuff that is designed for that and will not crack and leaking. The internet is full of camper van owners crying over leaks because they made it wrong. Do not make the same mistake Leena will have to regretting, please. The right stuff for that is Sikaflex®-252 : is suitable for dynamic loading, structural bonding, Product advantages: 1 part, Elastic, Can be painted, Tolerance compensation, High dynamic load, Vibration-retardant, Non-corrosive, High electrical resistance, Wide range of adhesion, Silicone free Greetings from Germany! Love your channel

  • Hate to say it after the fact but you should have sprayed as much closed cell foam for the exterior walls, roof and doors as possible. That insulation you are using doesn't have much of an R factor regardless of how they advertise it. Also the metal framing that the walls will connect to will cause thermal bridging and bypass your insulation. Insulation is going to be the limiting factor of how comfortable the rig is and how much fuel she uses.

  • I get a general feeling like this is a really half assed attempt at "helping" someone. Any good coming out of this is heavily overshadowed with the general IDGAF attitude, sexual innuendo toward the van or Leenda and general disrespect for the her. Regardless of the existing nature of the channel and the bros having rude banter, this series is all cringe and that lady regardless of her situation doesn't deserve to be treated or talked about like that
