Where did you get your body decals? I need some color on my lilly-white bus.

Too bad your bus is fiberglass. The rest of us have no problem adding a little color--we just wait for the rust stains to show up!

Yeah, mine doesn't rust but I park it under a giant cherry tree so I get lots of tiny cherries and purple bird droppings on the roof. By spring the nasty purple migrates down the sides and has to be scrubbed off. There's no free lunch.

And now painted... just need to switch out the knobs to match...



Bansil- yeah, it took a little while to find something that would fit my purpose and size, but I found it and pounced.

sdwarf- looks a great, a little mod and it fit right in, huh?

Yea-5 minutes with a sawzall to take off 1 corner to fit the curvature of the roofline. It was bought more for the right size+ shape as opposed to the looks. ( I tell people it came from the Munster collection. )
