Well I am tired guys. But good news. I have a week to finish up Gracey and was scared I wouldn't get her painted on time. So I had some friends set up a painting party today. Had about 16 people show up. Got the first coat done on the whole thing, and a second coat on a lot of it. Still have touching up to do, and all the bumpers and highlight stuff. But she turned out pretty good I think. Also got the interior nearly all painted. Don't have any pics of the interior though. Got too dark to take pics. We used an high elastomer paint. Not the longest lasting option, but I only need this paint to last for the next year. Will get a new paint job next year. It is a high gloss and looks great. It is self leveling and real thick. I pressure washed the bus a couple days ago. Then I took some 400 grit and an orbital, and roughed it all up. The white paint that was on it was put on before with a sprayer and old and dulled, so it was a great primer. Took some mineral spirits and wiped it down before painting with foam rollers. Went on really well. Here are the shots from the day.
My buddy Brian taping off the ceiling inside. Unfortunately this is the only shot of the interior. Will have more shots from the inside tomorrow.
My driver Jared painting a lovely shade of hot pink.
Painting the roof. First half is done. I did the paint up there pretty thick so I should only have to do one coat up there.
Some of the girls (Stacy and Nikki) painting the side. View from the roof.
My other friend Brian painting the side. View from the roof.
Here she is with the first coat done. Looks kinda like a Miami Vice shirt. Haha.
