Finally Painted our Bus and how did it!

After doing so much research we decided to take the plung and paint our skoolie. We decided on white. Took us four hours and a half gallon of white high gloss rustoleum paint. Read more here.

And if you don't like that paint job. Just change it.

i was wondering about that as well
been doing odd jobs for about a decade... have refinished many-an-item... and was taught to Always use sandpaper... for longevity's sake


the paint looks great though!
nice job- i am feeling much better about getting a yellow one now!
