 Been awhile since I posted any updates on our bus, but now that the weather is more suited for working on it, out comes the to do list Shocked Grin. The one thing I really wanted to get after is the entry way in the front of the bus, and get rid of the factory flooring. I replaced all the decking, and decided to go Laminate. We love it! and the Pooch (Who say's ya can't teach an old dog new tricks Wink ) is even learning how to dance now  Wink Grin

  But anywho, here is a photo of this past weekend's project.

Van, looks really good. Having recently redone our entrance and driving area, I'm curious if the metal is inlaid or setting on top of the laminate or butted against. Inquiring minds want to know  Grin Will

Will, the metal stair edging sits on top of the laminate, it did the job nicely as it is 2 3/4'' wide on top and about 1 1/2'' hanging down in front. this will come in handy as I still have to figure out what to cover the risers with, in any case I can move the trim to accommodate what ever I end up using. Incidentally the trim can be had at Home Depot
