Re: The Brown Crown

Got sick back in May when I started the pinstriping on the outside of the Crown, but well now and started to finish the job. I put the stripes on the front today and removed the Crown emblem on the front to rehabilitate and re-paint.

Re: The Brown Crown

A couple of before and after pics of the emblem...just have to let the black paint dry overnight and then hit it with a 1000 grain wet/dry paper to take of the paint smudges around the lettering and it will be ready to go back on the bus.

You need to come on out to Texas with that beauty! There's a bunch of us here that can learn from you and your bus .

We have hook-ups at the farm. Stop on by whenever you want to. Plenty of parking too.

Re: The Brown Crown

I'm new to the bus thing... I've been checking out a lot of builds and love seeing how everyone overcomes the issues they face...

This might be my favorite bus...

I'm really digging the ceiling work, gonna blatantly steal your idea...

Great color on the outside...

I've built a rock crawler 4x4 from the ground up... No bolt on stuff, all fabricated... I'm really excited to see how my bus turns out...

Keep up the great work, I'll be watching for more ideas...
