Re: Project "Brutus"

Gotcha, my compressor blew the breaker a couple times, but it was pretty noticeable. Would start to get really thick and clumpy. One spot is kinda funny. Has a nice "texture" to it, lol...

Re: Project "Brutus"

Guys, I can relate on the paint job. I did/am doing mine with brush and rollers but even with all the runs, drips and errors it is a distinct improvement. The most important thing is: I am happy!

Re: Project "Brutus"

That feeling of accomplishment when it is finally "not yellow" is amazing!!

Edit: Also just realized that if anyone still wants to see the pics, they can just click the pics and it will bring you to the photobucket page.

It's stupid but I guess they feel like they need to make money too .... way to get us hooked on a free service, reel us in and set the hook. Thank you greedy world ....

The silver looks AMAZING ! ! I wish I was able to make the blue look as good on Fergus ....
I had no knowledge of the 10 gig bandwidth limit. I have very many photos on this forum. I hope that my bandwidth limit gets reinstated.

Re: Project "Brutus"

I checked my account on Photobucket. Apparently, in two days, my bandwidth allocation will be reinstated. We shall see.

Prior to using Photobucket, I used TinyPic to post on the other bus forum. I haven't gone back to that forum. I guess that all of my photos are still there. The current administrator of that site is a nice guy.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Well, rear bumper on (just need to get some stainless hardware), finished skinning rear windows, got fenders installed, and got headlight bezels installed (after painting them silver ). I really need to spray the underside of the fenders black!! I'll probably get that tonight, after I get the door painted black.
