1986 Toyota SunLand Express - Full Remodel


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi everyone!
First post on this forum, which has been extremely helpful throughout this project.
I bought a 1986 SunLand express last June, and started the remodel in mid January (6 month delay... that's life...)
I'll post a log of how it all went, but I'll open by showing the before-and-after photos:

Hi, I recently got a 85 Sunland express. Mine's going to need a lot of work on the inside and I was wondering if you had a rough estimate on the amount of plywood and wood that you used for the walls and roof? Im trying to get an idea of what all/how much material I will need to get before I start tearing stuff down.

Well it's hard to judge. 1/4" is out there in 4X4 and 4X8 you will have a lot of waste no matter what you do. Just take an overall measurement and go for it you can always go back and get more as needed.

you will need a table saw. the supports inside are note a standard size. you will need to rip wood to size. practice first if unfamiliar with the saw

Try your very best to get the old pieces out without destroying them you will need them as a pattern. I'll assume it's not your first rodeo it's not exactly and easy project.
