yeah..shes out there now, guess her moms takeing it real hard.... So a move is looking more likely all the time...yeah the bus is currently in anacortes, but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't let me do much work on her where she sits. I wouldn't mind getting her liveable then moveing her to a rv park, but a paint job would have to be high on my list (like its not anyway) for them to even think about it.

Sorry about your loss, we had a bad summer ,it gets better with time but that doesn't make it easy .
Try oven cleaner and a pressure washer to loosen up the latex paint without damaging the yeller paint, its probably baked on and just about impossible to duplicate in the real world, just scuff it up for good adhesion and paint it.

Hmmm...hadn't thought about oven cleaner... I figure if I run it through a GOOD car wash (high pressure hose) it would probably take off a good part of it..someone did a really crappy job on it..and the years haven't helped it one bit.

Is it currently at the old drive-in storage facility on 20? I've seen several buses in there.

As the saying goes...where there's a will there's a way. I think there's still enough rural area around here to find a place, at a fairly reasonable rate, to work on the bus. It may take some hunting around but it's out there.

Actually its at the anacortes automotive yard, just in town and near the bay...if you were to take 20 all the way into anacortes it would be on the right hand side just before the stop light on R ave.... you can't miss it..its big, its a nasty blue, and its ugly *LOL*

well things should begin to happen soon, we are moving back to washington state sometime in the middle of march and I will have roughly two weeks to paint the bus and get it "liveable" ... for us this simply means a bed(s) and a shower... I was thinking of useing a small house type water heater for now since the bus would be parked in a rv slot and hooked to shore power/water, we already have a shower stall that has a sink and toilet mount..now I just need to find a toilet to put there...

now to go dig around in the tutorial section a bit

may I suggest a composting toilet? You can build one yourself cheap. It will smell less, need very infrequent emptying and be alot easier than a blackwater set up.
