The Story of Paint Part 2
I'm going to keep this one short and let the pictures do most of the talking. But, a quick recap goes:
Day 2 finds us with itty bitty brushes going over all the yellow spots. There are a lot. A LOT. Everywhere we look we find nooks and crannies with yellow. WHYYYYYY. Because everything takes longer than I want it to.
And then Day 3! We experiment with wet sanding and do not care for it. Out come the rollers and the paint and in about 3 and a half hours we have the whole thing rolled. We go run some errands and return to pull all the tape off. This part is a little disappointing as things are not perfect. We spend time with paint thinner on all the rubber bits of the bus (around the back windows, the door) removing the adhesive and things are looking about 50% better.
As I've heard other people say around the forums and on the web and I'll repeat it, from about 20 feet back, she looks perfect. When we get time to repaint the rub rails (black) and get into a few more nooks and crannies, she'll look pretty darn good even up close.
