[quote="Shadoll"]Mopped and ready to caulk and paint... YAY! Got a window of 4 days of 31 and above nights. Gonna try for it.

Be sure to run a heater in the bus while the paint is drying. Better safe than sorry! Oh, and speaking of safe - maybe an electric heater would be better than propane in combination with paint fumes.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

It's been up to 60-something during the day, If I can do it Saturday. Would be better if I could take Thursday off but that isn't going to happen. Think I'm going to have to go with 2 different paints. The one I bought was for galvanized metal and aluminum but the one patch between the wheel wells I think needs regular rustoleum. Might get a quart of that just for that section. Just happy it's warmed up enough to get the primer layer down. Then a trip to home depot for the foam and boards. YAY. Seems that I can still keep to my schedule.

I can see that. Although I don't know either one that well. I was borrowing from my friends love for the Grateful Dead. I'm more the Bob Seger type. I was clueless in the 60's. And if you turn him around his underwear are showing like some rapper. *shrugs* I got so tired of seeing my son's underpants. Funny now that my son is in Kentucky, home of the the bluegrass.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Reposting this to my own wall as I found it interesting.
Hy-Tech Bus Kote #2150
Bus & Recreational Vehicle Coating

Bus-Kote is a bight white, acrylic elastomeric, insulating ceramic, waterproof coating designed specifically for Buses and recreational vehicles. This high build rubber like coating waterproofs, insulates, soundproofs, beautifies and protects with a ceramic shield that expands and contracts with varying hot and cold temperatures plus resists thermal shock. Bus-Kote offers superior mildew resistance and ultraviolet ray reflectivity.

Originally designed as an insulating, reflective coating for school districts to use on the roofs of school buses to lower the interior bus temperature. This energy saving coating will reduce interior temperatures when hot and make interior temperatures more constant when cold due to ceramic insulation. formulated to resist over 100 m.p.h. wind driven rains. Hy-Tech offers a 5 Year Limited Warranty when applied according to our specifications.
This easy to apply maintenance free coating will provide years and years of durable, insulating protection and outstanding beauty. ( For the ultimate in roof coating protection we recommend a top coating of Flexi-Clear, an elastomeric crystal clear coating that is designed for protecting paint finishes.
Flexi-Clear is completely non-yellowing, highly resistant to water, road salt, tar, oily grime and its natural hydrophobic film is easy to clean and maintain.)
Bus Kote Coverage: 125-150 square feet per gallon.
Available in 1 Gal, 5 Gal, and 55 Gal drums
$39.50 Per Gallon...5 Gallon$197.50

My question was one gallon would do the roof? hmmm.. mine would be approx 255 sq ft. so 2 gal.? Additive for 1 gal is $13.95.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Don't know about BusKote: We used SolarFlex (Henry's) and used about 5 gallons for 3 THIN coats on a 40 ft bus. I need to do another 5 gallons come spring. Where oh where to roll it one. Not sure if Campground will lets us do it here. Maybe if we get the bus tagged/titled/insured we might move it across the street to the informal "truck stop" for a day or two.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Went by Home Depot to get some aluminum tape and was talking to one of the girls about countertop materials. Fun stuff. And I was walking by the 'clearance' rack. And saw some familiar looking boxes so I gave it a second glance. Allure trafficmaster, 5 boxes of American Walnut regularly $47 a box for $26. Not exactly the color I wanted but close enough to save $100 on. I had my heart set on the hickory, but the walnut finish is smoother and it's close enough to the right color. (Either one I would have had to special order in) So I now have 120 sq feet of laminate flooring. And the gal gave me some tips. I'm happy. (And that stuff is heavier than it looks).

Tango recommended it on another stream (or at least that website) so I thought I'd have a look. I remember you saying about the SolarFlex and I've looked that up as well. Figure I'll get to that closer to spring.
