Re: The Broccoli Bus

I'm pretty much not going to use any tint at all, and leave it white. Time and weather permitting, I may spray a clear on it, which would help resist UV fading significantly.

All of them so far have said the UV protection is in the tint and say to not use anything lighter than desert sand or light grey.

Re: The Broccoli Bus

You might check HyTech Bus Kote. Made specifically for bus roofs plus is a truly remarkable thermal insulator. Having seen it in action on a tin roof in 110 degree Texas heat, I'm using their insulating beads on all my body panels and will be applying the Bus Kote to my roof.

Re: The Broccoli Bus

My plan is to slather a few layers of stuff up there. Bed liner makes a good durable skin that won't get scraped off, then a thermal barrier paint like bus kote.

Honestly the reason for the bed liner is that its catalyzed and cures in about two hours. After that it can rain and it doesn't matter. If I was in a dry climate right now I'd go for the buskote or solarflex.

For instance, I am currently sort of "trapped" in the bus with an unusual pacific northwest fall monsoon outside.

Drove around the block because I had to pull it out for pressure washing, sanding, and painting.
