I think there are a lot of clear coated patinas out there. As with applying any primer, paint, or clear; it's all about having a nice clean surface that will accept what is being sprayed, applied, to it. Some like having a slightly rough surface with "tooth" to grab onto, just make sure it's free of anything that could contaminate it and cause it to start lifting.

Come up to MD; it's the natural color of the water anyway.

I love this!!!

I LOVE YOUR WORK!!! Sorry for yelling, but it's awesome! My wife and I have been talking about getting a bus and converting it. I redid a 4x4 camper van and that was nice, but we have two kids and the little bed in the pop top is just too small for them now. So... we sold the beast... Actually whale, she was named Ballena Blanca (white whale in spanish).

My had goes off to you sir! Your attention to detail is much appreciated.
I stumbled accross skoolie.net just 2 days ago and havn't stopped watching your videos untill I just now came to the end... I want more!


Keep up the awesome work!

You did it wrong. Should have sold the kids. I was once offered 50 cent per pound on the hoof. I was greedy and held out for $1. Now I can't get rid of them. It'll cost me to pay someone to take them. Hopefully it's not too late for you.

His buddy buys a bus and he disappears for a month. Who's the Executive Producer, I need to send a nasty-gram.

Just made an assumption; apparently an incorrect one.
