Re: Project "Brutus"

Haha Took me a bit to figure out what you meant. I'm slow. Deal!! Just feed me

Anywho, I'm primed! I probably wont do a second coat of primer, as I only put primer down to make sure the paint stuck and make the color mostly consistent. Yes, you can see stripes where I had primed with the red oxide primer, but I don't think it will matter. My biggest issue was spiders. Stupid things were making webs just as fast as I could wipe them off :/ Going to let it set overnight and then paint tomorrow!

Looks great. I know that I am color blind, but that looks like silver paint.

Re: Project "Brutus"

It is I'm going to take pics before work tomorrow, now that I got all the plastic, newspaper, and tape off and post them. I have to paint some black strips now to accent, but it turned out pretty good!

Re: Project "Brutus"

Still need to get all the black parts painted, and do the door, but here it is! Of course it poured last night, so it is all speckled with drops, but you get the idea.

The silver with the white roof looks good. Black accents will be deluxe.

Re: Project "Brutus"

I did it backwards and paid the price. I should have painted the whole bus and came back and painted the black like you are. Masking off the black was a pain in the @$$.

I do like the silver. Looks good man.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Hey Jake,

I was reading through your post again, it had been a while since I last went through it. I see that you have the same Atwood furnace I had for my van. If it does not heat the bus enough you can have mine as a second heat source. I never got a chance to use it in the van and it is new.

Yeah, this way seemed way easier to me. And this way the bus is done, sealed up, and protected. I can do the black whenever. I'm actually contemplating brushing the black on.

I'll PM you!


Thanks for the compliments guys. I can't wait to get the black on as I think it will bring everything together. One thing is for sure, you will never have a hard time finding our bus in a campground
