Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

everyone with your oem yellow paintjobs have it easy whebn u paint your bus!! My whole bus had never been painted..as it had new caps front and rear..and new steel over windows etc. I had to sand that thing for a week.. then apply self etch primer. .. that means dragging the air compressor out from under the bus, setting up the paint gun..etc.... then paint self etch primer on the bare surfaces and rivets, tapi9ng **** off windows and stuff ..then completly sand all the self etch down... then I must have taken the bus to the car wash about 5 times now... so there's that to... oh and I just starteed applying 2k primer today. Got half the bus done! I am sore.

oh and i need to move the bus every 2 days so i dont get towed!

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

the bus is now complete with 2k high build primer. i need to sand the whole bus down,wash, then I can start applying the paint this week. I was approached by the fir departments haz mat team. They took photos of everything but i was not issued and tickets. they did say that if i was wet sanding and the run off water and paint particules were flowing into the storm drain i would be arrested on a felony. I was not issued any tickets but told that they will submit the photo's as part of the investigation and if they decide to prosecute me, i could be getting a letter in the ail to go to court. But they didnt say by painting i was violating any laws.I mean come on...people spray houses, interiors, i know u should paint a vehicle in a paint booth, but thats only if u don't want any debris in your finish. I think they were trying to scare me. I shouldn't have done it in front of the fir department, as there training center is located accross the street

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

I live next to the volunteer fire dept, and they even cut up cars, set off fireworks, and have loud parties in the parking lot.. which isnt on their property...
Last week it was raining hard, so they didn't have their regular monday night meeting...
You could easily paint your bus next to their property.. i have painted excavavators and cats and backhoes right next to their building....

well i always say, someone lives somewhere, and there's always someone who will have a problem with my protocol to get **** done. I have a bus that needs to be painted, and until someone shows me a law saying u can not spray paint a vehicle on the road, I need to keep shooting.

Folks paint on the road all the time. They apparently tend to only use white paint or yellow paint. Sometimes they will use black... I think they need to use more colours!

It is the flying paint you have to be aware of. If it lands on somebody else's property or car you will be in trouble real fast!. And is illegal to dump ANYTHING but rainwater in the drain storms countrywide.

If he waited to paint until he got to Roswell, the paint wouldn't make it to the bus! Too much wind!
