The initial few wood runs are critical as you need to figure out where you are going to start. Outline those areas with a marker. Label the pieces of wood and trowel the adhesive inside the marked area. Install the wood and press down as hard as you can to insure a good transfer. Let it stand over nite- with weight on it. I use a box of wood or toolbox.
When you come back the next day, you will have a firm footing to install your next pieces.

If you don't let it set, and try to do too much, the wood will slide all over the place.

These directions are easier to read then the actual installation.
thanks for the advice. Looking at the fully striped floor now. Getting ready to pull the sound deadning material that BB put down in the cockpit area. And then pull the convector covers on the curb side. I will be removing the one short convector next to the fridge as its not needed and shortens the cabinet Im planning for that area.
