Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Hehe thanks bansil! I am close to doing the ownership conversion to RV now. We are painting the roof tomorrow to white so the school bus yellow will be gone, and i have the other items in the list in place. I am curious to see what the amount we have spent is....

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

This bus has cost me half of what my buggy cost lol... I am using mine for business / pleasure that's really the only reason i am keeping track.
But your right who cares how much it costs just have fun!!!

Today was sooooooooo tiring. Roof is now painted. I am thankful there is only about 2 - 3 hours left in painting and i can get back onto the inside.

That looks great. I know that color choice is subjective, however, I think the stripe would look very good if it was painted the same blue that Bamper painted his bus.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

That sounds awesome Chuck... to bad we already painted it before i red your post hehe.

Finished off some of the areas that we didn't get done yesterday and did the strip. I'm not sold on it yet... I like it and don't like it at the same time if that's allowed lol.
The masking tape is still on it because the rustolium paint likes to come off with the tape so were giving it some cure time.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

I think those colors work well together. Is that brown ? I am a little color blind. It almost looks red as well.
