I have an used a Sun-Mar non electric waterless composting toilet in my cabin down back. I considered installing it on the bus. The consideration was quickly rejected by Hubby & after thinking about it, by me.

In the three years or so that I used it I could never, never get it right and it stunk to high heaven and back.

We elected to go with the Jabsco marine toilet. Same concept, non-electric, waterless but the stinky stuff will be going into a grey water tank. As it only uses as much water as we choose to put in it, we thought it a good idea to mix grey water with it.

Getting ready for paint, resealed roof seams

Used my own recipe for re-sealing brushed the seams with mineral spirits and wiped and then sealed with Henry's 212 love that stuff.

Nice to see I'm not the only one missing the logo off the silver piece up front.

Scotch Brite before paint

Still prepping for paint (or the zombie apocalypse, ha) put a little something together to help. Polisher/ sander, some 3M spray adhesive and scotch brite pads.
Cut pad to size of the disk[/URL][/IMG]
A little spray adhesive [/URL][/IMG]
Good to go [/URL][/IMG]

Tomorrow we paint!

Finally, all the safety stuff has been removed all holes closed and sealed, 100% scuffed and washed, a wipe down with mineral spirits and a painting we will go! It is incredible how much reflective tape and lettering decals are used on school buses.
