Bus is looking nice!! I need to turn my thoughts towards painting, too. You're lucky to have a steady hand and artistic vision! I have dreams of doing some sort of painted design, but the best my fingers can muster up are stick-men and lollipop trees.

Yeh, I can't see having any complaints about that much yellow.. If you did get a ticket I would certainly bring it to court with pictures. The officer would have to be a real anal-retentive prick to stop you for it.
Anecdotally, I've been driving around with the full front cowl still in SBY for quite some time. No problems. Even before that I only had the lower half of the bus (what I could easily reach) spray painted. From below the windows and all the way up was still SBY, but the vehicle definitely did NOT look like a school bus with that hack-job spray job. I think that's the big point: it shouldn't look like a school bus.
Especially if you have a good friend who's house you are prone to parking out front of and happens to live next to a pre-school as I do.
One day while having a party there I gave everyone spray cans and let them go at the bus. One friend wrote, "Free candy" with an arrow pointing towards the door! With a couple drinks in the belly it was pretty damn funny... but I covered it up quickly the next day
