There are a couple of paints on there. The brown primer is Rustoleum rusty metal primer, applied with a roller. The next coat is a acrylic primer, also applied with a roller. The final coat of paint is Sherwin Williams Infinity exterior, semi-gloss, acrylic. It is applied with a foam roller.
I had originally planned to use Tractor Supply's Truck and Implement paint, but I'm going to be doing a bunch of work on SanFord over the next couple of years. I have plans for storage under the bus, generator doors, and propane tank access. I will also be replacing all the bent panels and smoothing all the dents. That's going to mean cutting and a lot of repainting so I wanted something easy to use.
In another 8-10 years when all the metal work is done, I'll probably strip the entire bus down again and shoot it with automotive paints.
