Roof Painted – Check!

Actually, now that Jim has painted the roof of the bus, we are thinking about using the extra paint (quite a bit left over) to paint and insulate the sides. Then maybe a Mexican Dragon stencil design that we can do ourselves. But first, the roof. It took quite a while! The bus is big!

The paint has always been a problem. The guy we bought it from hated it as soon as he started to spray the color and it has been that way ever since. Except for the peeling off parts due to inadequate prep.

Part of the problem: the vinyl graphic trim on the original tour bus. He left it on and painted over it. That worked well…

Scraping that off was one of the hardest parts.

Scraped, ready for primer.
