Wouldn't you get a lot of dirt drifting down from the overhead autos?

Use care when sanding around the caps.

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

I think if i park it out of direct sunlight for a few hrs. I should be fine. This is not a show bus... just put alot of time nd money into this project and would like to apply a decent paint job

Livin on the edge. Painting a bus on the street. Love it!

Keep at it and hopefully the neighbors down wind won't notice.

It's gonna look sharp when you are done.
