    Damon has a thread on his setup. I got jealous so I figured I'd start one on mine

    Before scraping adhesive off. I know you guys have seen this already. I'm adding more.

    Use a heat or steam gun to get the adhesive off. You're coming up in the world Matt. Good job.

    Brake cleaner will be the only thing to get the adhesive off.

    Nice truck, best of luck. You are gonna love that cab over.

    Adhesive remover applied with ample dwell time will yield best results with least anount of effort and overall time.

    I started using goof off and it was taking the paint off with the adhesive as well. I used a few other things and didn't like the outcome and found that wd40 did the best. I sprayed it on, loved that it stayed on and didn't evaporate immediately, let it dwell, and started scraping. There's just a tad left on it, and I'm gonna see if my wrapping company will let me get by with it. If not, I'm just gonna pay them extra to remove it themselves. I'm burned out on scraping

    As for the door, I have a local welder machine dude that did all the cutting and remaking of the frame. There's a trailer company that builds enclosed trailers in a county next to mine that's gonna install the door this thursday.

    If that is just latex paint on the floor, you will be sorry. I know, I made the mistake myself.

    It smells like polyurethane. Did you get that blue gallon container at the auto parts store? And did you put it on a van metal or a wood floor like mine?

    I like option 3.

    I put a plywood floor over the planks. I used the liner paint from Harbor Freight which is holding up well. I put down the paint flecks that you buy at Home Depot for garage floors that turned out really well.
