Re: Warm weather made me think about getting my bus painted


The magazine has a web site -- amcar.no -- but they post only a small sample of the material, and I don't see any of my stuff there now. The Light Cranberry 1957 Caddy was in the February issue, which is ancient history now. And no, it is all in Norwegian anyway. Sorry; can't win'em all!

What a shock when Boyd died recently. An accidental fall in his home led to his death at age 63.

Re: Warm weather made me think about getting my bus painted

Just yesterday I picked up the paint for our bus. Was going to get the Rustoleum like everyone else but couldn't find the colors I wanted in gallons and it was going to take too long to get them ordered. Went to Kelly Moore paints and bought their industrial coatings paint. They claim it has a higher zinc content than the Rustoleum making it more rust inhibitive. It's a high gloss enamel so it should have a nice sheen. It was $6 a gallon more expensive than the Rustoleum. I have to admit I'm dreading this part, although it will mean we are wrapping it up. Hey Timbuk! I know you've gotten so good at taking paint off, I bet you'd be a natural at putting it back on. Want some practice?
