Geeze louise, you may very well be able to do the bus with what... five cans? cant beat that. Like the Scotsman always used to say "It's not a piano Mr G. Good enough for goverment work."

Oh AND ... "It looks good from my house."

it looks like the 225 / 75 R16 tires that were on the bus have been rubbing in the back. I think I may have to go with 215 / 85 R16 tires to make it fit. They are a hair taller and a hair skinnier than the 225's.

Bad luck. Used my last can to touch up the hood and drivers side and the can turned out to be bad...darker shade of blue. So i still need to finish drivers side and back.
