It 's SO Pink. But it's mine =D

Finally found my bus!

Paid 2800 for it
with only 93,000 miles on it and an RV generator already hooked up!

Having a party in this Tuesday then the work begins....

Re: It 's SO Pink. But it's mine =D

Are the letters stickers? Maybe you can just paint the rubrails another colour to minimize the pink. It looks like a good paint job. Be a shame to repaint the whole thing if you can just add another colour or two to tone it down or make it less pink. Put the "complete paint job" money elsewhere. Looks like a rolling party. Go to your local "big box" stores that sell paint and look in the booklets for paint combos that include pink. That will give you some ideas as to what colour combos work well with pink. Look up info on the Art Deco district in Palm beach. They have some pinks there.

Ya it looks like a new paint job will be what it needs...I pulled off the "C" to cupcakes so those stickers will fortunately just pop right off.

Applying for a grant for 4500.00 to convert it. I will post more soon

Where do you apply for a grant to convert a bus? I could use a grant!

Re: It 's SO Pink. But it's mine =D

Well I'm currently an undergraduate student in sculpture so it's an undergraduate research grant. Apparently, they would never pay for a bus but they may pay for a small house project that just so happens to be in my pink bus ;).


Funny story I went to get gas the other day (I'm not supposed to drive it cause it's not insured yet) and I was trying to be discrete (HAH) and I got ambushed by a mob of people that really wanted tacos and cupcakes. A cop showed up and I had to drive off ASAP.

people really like red velvet tacos apparently...

You may well have stumbled onto a way to pay off your undergrad courses...in advance.

They want tacos so bad?...sell'em some damn tacos!
