Nice transformation. You took off all the patina.

And when you put a toad behind your bus you can call it Sanford & Son.

What kind of paint did you use and did you spray or brush it on?

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.

Do you have a color code/name for the light blue?

Nice transformation. Previously it looked like you could probably put your fist through the exterior wall of the bus in places. Just color, I know. I'm just colorblind.
That's quite the roller job. Looks great. Many of us are following you lead with similar paint jobs.

The lighter color is Aloe. Color code SW6464. The paint came from Lowes.

Edit: For the record is is an outstanding paint. Probably one of the best I have ever used. It covers extremely well. That side of the bus has less than a quart of each color on it, only two coats.
