Re: Project Niles Skoolie

The red is almost too institutional for me

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

One option that would look good would be silver. It wouldn't be the same kind of spash of color like the red, but it would certainly blend well with the white and black.

I think the red looks good, it adds flair to your bus. I say job well done

It's red? I thought it was maroon. The colour on my tablet must be off.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

I think the red needs something inside the stripe to set it off. Lettering or Celtic knots or something. Maybe a nice quotation that you like.

White lettering or design with black drop shadows on the red would look nice and tie it all together.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Thanks guys, Well i can call August 16th her birthday because today she officially became a registered RV / Motorhome. Went into the DMV (Service Ontario) and had the ownership converted. It was rather painless thank god. Now onto safety and insurance....

Okay so back to the paint... here is what the final looks like.


I will definitely be adding some vinyl as well as "Nile's Skoolie" up top where it used to say school bus. Here is the first sticker...

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Ah yes, the silver does look good! I especially like the grill much better with the silver. I've been thinking about doing that on my bus, and now I'm convinced it's the way to go.
