Welcome,

Many have had good results using some sort of equipment paint and rolling it on. Don't know if you have an Orschlin store near you, but I think their paint looks good.

Paint:
http://www.rickwrench.com/index79mas...llarpaint.html

Paint Forum:
http://rolledon.forummotion.com/

I'm using ACE Hardware RustStop, unthinned, with a foam roller and a small art brush to cut in where needed.

Almond Gloss across the window section, a custom mixed colour (in the Rust Stop... they have bases that they can custom tint) for the Body and Rustoleum Hammered Copper for the rub rails, mirrors, aluminum trim. Snow Roof Elastometric (white) on the roof down to the "eyebrows" over the windows.

I painted our Vintage Class C with a good paintbrush and ACE latex house paint. Looks good even close up.

Re: 1969 international loadstar 1600 superior coach

When you click on "Post Reply", it will take you to the page where you fill in the message you wish to post online. Above the area where you type your message, you will see "B", "I", etc. Amongst all that is a little button that says "Img". Click on that and it will insert "img" and "/img" in brackets. You copy and paste your pictures location between the two words.

IE: Say I want to post a pic from one of my photo bucket albums. So I would go to my photobucket page and find the picture I want. I click on the "direct link" and paste the code "http://www.skoolie.net/attachments/photobucket/img_51402_1e35b719c690380c78bc4bbe9fcfadc6.jpg" so that it looks like this (but I omitted the brackets and used parentheses instead)

(img)http://www.skoolie.net/attachments/p...be9fcfadc6.jpg (/img)

Inserting with the brackets (not the parentheses) will post the picture like this...
