Re: new member 1965 chevy

yes we will spray the bus and roll on the roof coating we will use pressure pots to do the job! will have to wait untill it warms up though and are fighting the damp weather at this point. hoping 2 gallons of color will do the job from the black panels down may or may not paint the rub rails red-the goodwrench look!

Oh Timbuk, you're one tough hombre. Looking good. I'm going to drive up and park my bus beside yours and let your overspray paint mine.

Re: new member 1965 chevy

Hey man. we now have one prime coat and 3 coats of white(our base). Soon to start adding colors. Have to draw out the design on the bus hopefully tomorrow. I'm going out of town for a few days so I imagine next week will be the big color week for us. I'm ready to be done. It's funny. Even though I knew better I thought all the imperfections you can see would go away with paint. Just the opposite. Now they reach out and slap you in the face. All those times I said, "that's good enough, it's just a bus" are coming back to bite me in the ass. Oh well, It's just a bus. Onward! Timbuk!

Whiskey! Miss Kitty! For me and my pals.
