Re: Smitty's Bus

"Jerry, short of my death, come hell or high water.....I'll be done! Plans are to spend the winter at "Q" in AZ, matter of fact I may be meeting-up with someone else who winters there (friend of a metal detecting friend)."


Damn, that looks good.
We'll be in "Q" off and on at least on the way down and on the way back. Hope to see you there. I'll check back when the time gets closer.
I have a lot of cabinet work to do before the fall.

Well... 1 quart is really close to the same as 1 litre. But that doesn't matter because I buy my paint in gallon pails anyways... Most of it is imported from the US. Of course the topcoat that I am using for my bus comes in a 5 gallon pail, so that will be fun to stir up.

Smitty, your bus looks really nice. Very cool indeed. What color did you say that was again.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Wow Smitty, that is quite a rig! Once you got going on that thing you just went after it like gang-busters. Just a few more details and you are done! I see your outside color is in keeping with your man-cave theme, and those wheels really make a huge difference. I'm too cheap to buy the simulators, but will definitely find the shiniest silver/chrome paint I can for mine rather than just leaving them black.
