Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
i'm an american, i don't even know where to find BC on a map....j/k. You should buy a cheap paint sprayer, you'd surprise yourself at how good you are at painting.
It took about 1/2 gallon of primer
1.5 rolls of heavy duty paper towels
1 old t-shirt. My heavy duty paper towels were leaving behind little pieces of fuzz...never had this happen before, i guess they don't make em like they used to. but the cotton t-shirt worked really well for final "washing" before painting
Just a hair over 2 gallons of rustoleam commercial by the gallon black paint. IF i didn't already have 3 gallons, i prob could have made it work with 2, but on a project like this, what's another $30.00
less than 1 quart of yellow
less than 1 quart of red
1 gallon of paint thinner for washing the bus (it tipped over and spilled most of it's contents on the ground...oopsies) I'll be drinking that in my well water in a few months.
1 gallon of acetone for mixing with the rustoleam. I never mix mineral spirits with my rustoleam, i think the acetone is way way better..worth the extra $$
lots of blue tape and other masking material
Less than 1 gallon of clearcoat ($150/gallon eeek!)
1/2 box of latex gloves. latex gloves are your friend...actually, for painting the vinyl or nitrile alternatives (most hospitals/ambulances use the latter two now because of some peoples allergy to latex) work better because the paint thinner, acetone, etc doesn't eat through vinyl or nitrle. Latex gloves fit nicer though.
2 small foam paint brushes for doing touch-ups. Couldn't find my airbrush.
1/2 roll duct tape for masking tires
