That's what I'd do. Or if going cheap and easy rustoleum or a similar oil based enamel.

Sometimes cheap is really expensive

We used Valspar and Rustoleum on the Sport Bus. I was happy with the results. Both colors we chose were flat, not glossy.

I used rustoleum and so far am happy with it. Mixed my own custom colors.

Stuff looks pretty good. Comparing it side by side with latex it looks REAL good!

Water based latex is maybe the worst thing to put on a Skoolie short of painting it with battery acid. To begin...it will never bond to the oil based paint that is on there. Next...water and metal = rust if you sand through anywhere. Fine for house interiors...horrible on any vehicle. Even the new gen, environmentally friendly factory applied, water based paint is crap. You can find brand new cars that just came off the carrier from Detroit that have rust popping through. I wouldn't even put it on fiberglass since it can't be sanded.

Someone applied water based latex to some parts of my '46 Chevy. They apparently sanded it down to bare metal to put it on and there is a layer of rust under it everywhere there was latex. Sand through the original, 72 year old, oil based Chevy paint and the metal is bright and clean underneath.

Just seam seal up the roof and paint it.
Thats a bummer. I was going to paint the whole interior of the bus body with the rubbery diy bed liner after the rust removal and application of rust conv. /primer prior to insulation. Extra sound deadening was my reasoning.

One of my complaints with the class A we have is you can hear everything outside. I don’t need silence to go to sleep , I just know it can be done better so now that I’m the builder.....

Just have to insulate better.
