The reason we left the top yellow is becuase I painted with Kool Seal it is an ultra reflective roofing urethane. I was skeptical about it but it literally on an 85 degree day 100% humidy in the middle of the afternoon dropped the interior temp with the windows up about 15 degrees. It was well worth it $50 for 5 gal.
I just did the prep work but another member of our team has been painting all his life and we used his shop in the background to paint it. It was just base coat that is in all the pictures so far.
This weekend we took it to a local airport and sprayed clearcoat on it in an airplane paint booth. They are the old Piper aircraft manufacturing painting booth. The hanger that the both was located in had 4 more booths all about 50x50x50 with huge folding doors and a 150' diameter turntable in the middle of the hanger floor. I slept in the bus as the paint was drying in the afternoon sun. I was awakened by the sound of a jet engine and the bus shaking, it was a F15 doing vertical climbs right over us. It was the Sun N Fun Fly In so we got to see a whole lota stunt planes and choppers. It was good times.
As soon i remember ill take some updated pics, alot has been done since i last posted some. The clear coat makes a world of difference, and the interior is pretty much done, since we hit the road for Rochester NY in 2 weeks.
