For the floor i repaired any bad spots and laided down 1/4 inch paneling on each side of the bus and put down some of that foam stuff for the 1/4 in flooing and installed it between the alley and the wall once the flooring was in i reinstalled the track for the alley on each side
i used a dado blade to cut a slot on the firing strips on the wall to allow the flooring to stay tucked underneath it here are some photos of the flooring
i chose to do the flooring first because i , at the time knew i would be living in the bus before it will be finished and that would alllow me to move cabinets and other things around ahead of time
wood flooring on each side and a carpet runner down the center

Now a bunch of firring strips useing 1 1/2 self taps bolts
my top vertical strip is at 65 inches
after thought i should have placed them much lower as its
on the curve just a little to add one inch diffrence from the top
and bottom top is narrower and bottom is bigger
