Very cool!! I found it funny, I was kinda debating on colors myself. If I hadn't done black, it was going to be an olive drab.

Looks good. I'm all for greens as long as they're not neon or too bright. Bright colors.... *shivers*

Re: The Dirtybus...

Well, got the roof painted and a second coat on the rest of the bus yesterday... I was worried about the dew over night, but it doesn't seem to be an issue...

Gonna let it cure today, then mask and shoot the black tomorrow...

It took every bit of the two gallons my buddy gave me... Cut it close, but it was just enough...

Re: The Dirtybus...

I've got some things in store that will set the look of the bus off... Just you wait...


I've been thinking about a few names for it... Have the acronym on the front and back, then spelled out on the sides... Here's a few I've been considering...

MUCV(Multi-Purpose Utility Command Vehicle) or (Mobile Utility Command Vehicle)...

MMUV(Mobile Multi-Purpose Utility Vehicle)...

MOCV(Mobile Off-Road Command Vehicle)...


Any others you guys can think of???
