Need advice on painting inside of bus.

I spent yesterday and this morning getting the inside of my bus ready for paint. I removed all of the windows and did a lot of masking. I also did a lot of sanding. I had a lot of stickers and stuff stuck to my ceiling. I had some Krylon paint and figured I'd roll it on like I did the outside. The Krylon stuff sucks for rolling on and I didn't like the color anyways. I'm not crazy about the stock ceiling color. I'll pick out another color tomorrow sometime. Should I spray it on? I need to get my painting done quick as it's starting to turn colder here in Oklahoma. Thanks for any advice or tips on what you guys did.

Re: Need advice on painting inside of bus.

I just rolled on a can of white rustoloum. Seems to be holding up well, except for a few spots where it's been scratched, by various things. It'll take a few coats to cover evenly.

Good luck.

Well then that's my plan too then! White ought to look good. My original color was some sort of Gloss Khaki. It looked great on the can, but when I started painting it on, it was the same color as the ceiling is now! WTF?!?
