Well i finally got my bus painted. I used an out door paint for metal. Its dutch boy. I think it turned out good for the money. I purchased 4 gallons but only used 2. And thats after 2 coats of paint. I posted the pics in my album. I also purchased 4 new drive tires at 255.00 a piece. And mounting was done free from a friend.
