Re: Miss Euphegenia: 1999 AmTran RE

I put blackout tint on the rear and 1st window from the back, 5% on the rest except the one beside the driver, 20% on that one. Some pics of the tine are in my thread in the short bus forum, Putters bus. Just in case you want to see..

True during the day. At night, with lights on inside the bus it's the opposite - you can't see who might be watching you. Remember to pull the curtains or blinds on any activity you don't want available for public viewing!

Don't listen to him. Leave them curtains open. I like to watch people.

Maybe with 20% or lighter.... I had 5% on my bus and at night, certain snoopy people (the HOA's lackies) could barely make out the television monitor I use for live viewing while playing back recorded video. Kinda funny, when one of them stuck their foot in their mouth in court saying that they could see a television through the window at night, I took a camera and took pictures of just what could be seen under those circumstances, and all I got was a ball of light that was indistinguishable at 40 feet.
May I ask why you were in court over something a person outside saw on your TV at night?

There will be curtains in addition to the tint.

The seller on eBay emailed me their return address, I was worried I might get a "we don't accept returns, you're stuck with it" since they don't say anything about returns on the listing, so we'll see what happens.

I'm tossing some ideas around for the paint scheme. Comments/suggestions?

Re: Miss Euphegenia: 1999 AmTran RE

Hmm, I didn't think about that. The roof is white for keeping the heat down, and the windows will be tinted (still waiting to get the darker film than in the pic above). White roof with a black band around the windows is the standard for the coach/transit industry, and a popular "dress-up" option for school buses. For the small amount of space (2" between each window) I don't think the black would be an issue. The photoshop makes it stand out a bit, but gloss black paint won't be quite as strong in real life.

I like that scheme! Did you use microsoft paint for that? I tried it, but it comes out real messy.

Yep, it just takes some patience. Mostly it's drawing thick lines (3 or 5 pixels) and then filling in with the brush.
