I think it looks very nice...Brown is a good color for a skoolie...but then I'm a little prejudiced

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

thanks guys, i like all the funny names, almond joy is pretty good as far as the paint, the roof turned out pretty smooth. i got some orange peel and runs on the sides of the bus, but i don't think i thinned it enough, and i probably should have taken more time. Dust wasn't an issue as it wasn't windy, and it solidifies pretty quickly. i think it turned out ok though. i bleached, inspected and cleaned my fresh water tanks today, and removed the decals and reflective strips from the left side and back. thanks for all the cool names, please give me more names when you think of them

Bansil,
i used 3/8 nap rollers for the almond roof. it came out very smooth. make sure to thin the Rustoleum with mineral spirits. high density foam rollers on the brown sides.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i got the back of the bus painted, this was hard. it took a lot of heat, razor blades and goo gone to remove all the decals, stickers and reflective tape. but it is done. i still need to do the left side and the front of the bus.
