Re: The Big Bus Build

A good job can be done with a roller. My next door business neighbor had a paint job for a large grocery store and the contract stipulated he couldnt spray the handrails, etc, so he experimented with the exact temperature and paint-reducer, hardener mix, and rollers. When i looked at it when he was done, i couldn't tell that it was rolled instead of spray painted, and i have painted vehicles for almost 50 yrs. the medium was red acrylic enamel, which the owner chose.

Re: The Big Bus Build

I used industrial acrylic enamel (yeah, I know it looks like it too ), applied by air less sprayer. Painting took minutes.

The paint costs more, but the thinner a whole lot less. I wouldn't brush or roll the stuff. Do a couple of applications, to get the undersides of the rub rail and other spots, and you're good to go.
