Re: "$50 paint job" using Rust-Oleum/Tremclad?

I removed my letters with the sander. They were painted on. But I had stickers and other stuff that I scraped off with a razor blade. You might try a different grit sandpaper. Maybe 100 grit. Also, I thought rolling the paint on would be less of a hassle, but it's not really. It's a huge PITA. I'd spray it if I were you. Find somebody with a big air compressor you can borrow, and just buy a cheap spray gun at Home Depot. Your windows should all come out pretty easily. I can have all of the windows down the sides of my bus removed in under 10 minutes. Then you can just mask off the holes and spray! Trust me, I've done both methods, and spraying is the way to go.
