Re: introduction/my shorty :)

Hi Karla and everyone else!

I have this exact same bus. Here is a link to the thread with some info and pics of my 1989 Ford Econoline shortbus -

viewtopic.php?f=36&t=4004

I'm curious, what did you use to paint the outside? I mean, what kind of sprayer and what kind of paint? It looks very good.

I am about to start the serious conversion work in our bus, but it's still in the early stages at the moment - not too different than your bus when you first took out the seats.

Best regards,

MikeG

Re: introduction/my shorty :)

Came into the thread pretty late. Glad to see you've got the bus into a great livable shape!
Just FYI to a question you asked in the beginning... yeah, there's at least one other woman on the forum.

Good luck in your new adventures in bus living! Keep us posted.

Re: introduction/my shorty :)

Yea I agree... had a yard sale to day & the hot topic was Buster & yet again... "Cool bus...What kinda mileage you get with that thing, 5-6 mpg??"
I said yea, whatever, your SUV gets 12 mpg - not much better than Buster & you could park your SUV inside of it!

Oh, & the other common comment was "You need to paint that bus almond color! That would look so good!" Are you kidding me?? I like the blue & that is the last thing I want to do.... look like the sterotypical RV'er... I AM A SKOOLIE DAMMIT! (ok, a citie)
