Re: International Shorty Party Bus

The inside of the bus is about done, and I am starting on the outside. I started preping for paint by using a da sander, but this is going to take forever. Anyone have any other ideas?

Re: International Shorty Party Bus

I'm about a week behind you. Have you picked a paint your using? I'm thinking Rustoleum.

Re: International Shorty Party Bus

I just got all the paint yesterday. I am using a non-sanding primer sealer, Chrome Yellow acrylic enamel for the main paint, and Gun Metal Grey Metallic for the graphics. It will still somewhat resemble a school bus, but with much more color and bling. Sanding the outside of the bus for paint has been a real pain in the ass! All the paint cost $400 shipped, and a friend is doing the painting, so not too bad.

Re: International Shorty Party Bus

Very cool!! I like the hood scoop, makes it look tough. Your wheels came out great. All you need now is a fat chrome stovepipe exhaust up the side...bad asss!! That yellow really pops. Great job.
