Clockwise from upper left:
1) The vertical grain douglas fur veneer is being applied to the ceiling.
2) Starting from the rear of the bus, they apply the finish to the ceiling veneer.
3) Working their way toward the front of the bus. 4) Just about done. Now that this is in, they can start to install the cabinets for the last time!
