for the front and back i used a high density foam roller. for the top i used a regular roller, i will get you the type tomorrow when i get out to the bus. for the tight corners i used a foam brush. i thinned the rustoleum with small amount of mineral spirits. i e started the sides in brown, and its really brown!! i might have to name the bus Hershey bar or something

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Those are nice, complementary colors. The bus has a good look to it. The power converter will be very useful - you could run all kinds of 12v stuff off shore power if you decide to make your bus predominantly a 12v DC house system which would be more efficient when you are on the road running off house battery power. I got one of those converters (a smaller, simpler one) used recently and I use it to run a 12v DC waste oil pump off my household 120 AC current when I'm working out in the shop so I don't have to use 6v/12v batteries, which are messy, heavy and need to be charged all the time. It's awesome!

thanks Dan,
i just need to figure out how to set up the converter. it looks like i can do some AC as well. i know i can charge batteries up with it as well, but i need to fine the correct wires to run.

Just because you thought it doesn't mean you had to say it.
