What kind of bus do you have? If you don't mind me asking, what did that cost you? Any pictures?
that bus I saw was an old pretty rough Prevost coach (early 90s) that the guy wasnt worried about the dings on it, just wanted it painted with custom colors and design... even wit hthe rough aluminum around the bottom it still looked good... yeah it was indeed fresh out of the booth.. no cleanup or anything...
the bus im having painted is a 6 window Bluebird conventional on an IH-3800 chassis... keeping the roof white and the rest of the bus the metallic red, black bumpers and mirror bars..
ill have about 3k in the paint job there. thats with them doing all the prep including taking the school lights out,stop signs, etc.. sealing and riveting metal in place of those lights.. their prep, their paint.. no custom designs other than the blue-bird logo in the white roof areas will be painted the bus red instead of black.
I dont exopect it to be a show-car style paint job but judging from other stuff they have painted it will be quite nice for a daily driver School bus parked in front of my favorite starbucks.
