Bus Paint Template

Thought I would post this... I wiped the cobwebs off of my Adobe Illustrator program & decided draw up our bus. I eliminated the windows on the side. Figured this would be a great way to see what color scheme we may want to do. I am going to see what it would look like with a raised roof also... Maybe some scallops on the side

Thanks Smitty! I am going to modify it & add some paint to jazz it up some! I think I am going to draw a standard bus also just to play around with maybe a smooth-sided conventional & see what I can dream up!

No problem Smitty, I would enjoy feedback on the ideas! Now I am just looking for a nice straight-on side shot of a conventional bus with a good exposure to show the details as that will make all the difference when I draw it up! Do you have any good (large) side photographs you wanna share?

Re: Bus Paint Template

Well I finally found some decent photos of conventionals & started illustrating one...

Since my bus has the CAT 3208 I thought this would be appropriate! Here is the CAT Bus....OR better yet, the ThomCat!
just like the Hemi - yea, its got a CAT!
Unfortunately the quality just isn't the same when I post these...
