Re: Putter's Bus

the can says deep blue, but it isnt. Seems to have a teal look to it. The old battery box is mounted now to become the generator fuel box. I will try to post pics later..

Re: Putter's Bus

I have that problem too with SOME of the clearance lights. Seems I have two different light bulbs in them. One is the large bulb like on brake/turn lights (1156/1157). The other is a low profile bulb (67). The large bulb hits the covers and I have to tilt the hbase to where it is almost touching the metal.

1156


67

Re: Putter's Bus

I was talking about the upper warning lights, but I found the problem, there was a screw left in, no wonder a new screw wouldnt go in.....so in between the showers, I went outside and fixed the last 2....I would have not slept all nite. I cant do that again, no sleep last nite as my only child,Nicholas arrived at Marine Corp bootcamp last nite. I know he is tired tonite also...

Re: Putter's Bus

taken with a iphone so its not that good a pic

this is rustoleum hammered deep blue, it actually looks like deep blue when you look down the side, instead of looking head on...
overall I like the color, done from a spray can

Re: Putter's Bus

I will have about $250 in the paint job, plus the $110 for the top. thats not bad considering what they want to paint it.
