Re: Bus #2... saved and with a new home
It was the paint. I used "XO Rust" from Coast Hardware. It wrinkled up like you wouldn't believe. I've spent the last week sanding the roof, then tried a TEST roll of the same paint. Same results. Wrinkles after less than an hour.
I had a quart can of Rustoleum black gloss, and did a test patch next to the bad spot. The result? A perfect shine. Then I rolled the whole upper side. Perfect.
My advice? Stay away from the XO Rust. It's crap.
Of course, today, it RAINED, so we'll see how the finish looks. Anyway, I have the roof rolled. The rest, I think, gets sprayed. I'll post pics when I actually get this thing done.
What IS it about a bus that makes things so HARD?
Incidentally, I have become a MASTER of window tinting. Heads up, folks, this bus is nearly on the road. STAY OFF THE SIDEWALKS!
