Re: Paint for Bus

There has been lots of discussion about paint. Rustoleum is a popular option, but if you have access to an auto body supply store there are lots of better paints that you could use. If you are planning on spraying on the paint I would look into what is available in automotive paint. If you are planning on brushing on the paint then Rustoleum is likely the way to go. I chose to spray my bus, and I chose to use industrial urethane primer and paint. You can follow my progress in my project thread linked below or check out THIS THREAD

Re: Paint for Bus

rustoleum is about 35-40 bucks a gallon here in canaada,i spray it all the time mixed with thinner and it looks great for the money.Auto paint is alot more money,not for the budjet minded for sure.
