Hey Spence, are those magnets the same as rare earth magnets? I have had good luck using rare earth magnets to hold cabinet doors and even pocket doors. Rare earth magnets are incredibly strong.

Lowes, Home Depot, ACE, Wal-Mart all have it here in NM. Lowes and ACE had it while we were still in Western NC. ACE has Ruststop (store brand) which is VERY similar to Rustoleum. Plus you can get Ruststop custom tinted. We painted the bus in Ruststop custom tinted to Turquoise Bay. Seems a little thinner than Rustoleum but only slightly. Could be because it was custom tinted. So far we have only used custom tinted Ruststop.

Re: THE ORIENT EXPRESS

WOW! What difference a little paint ( and a whole lot of work) makes! And I second the congrats on overcoming so many decals. They can really be a bear to clean up. Looks like a real RV now! Keep the updates coming.
