Not much to update. Just painting the other side so you've already seen all that. Put up the backview camera and hit all the trim pieces and lights.

The bus is looking good! What kind of paint and sprayer did you use?

Started working on the hood. I bought the repair kit from TAC bus parts. https://tacbusparts.com/sections/cat...sp?cat_id=1478

The water tank came in today too. Kind of disappointed with the quality. Not exactly square, thin walls, and there's dents/bulges.

Also painted the window trim black. I think it looks a million times better.

It's all on the prep work. Just make sure you have a nice clean surface. I used rustoleum. The oil base has a tendency to adhere better and dry harder imo.
