THE PLAN IS IN MOTION!!!
Ok, so we're priming in sections primarily because we're super busy this week... gotta do what you gotta do. We applied Bondo (from Home Depot) where needed on screw holes, etc and sanded bus. We're washing and wiping with acetone as we get to a side/roof of the bus. First up... the FRONT! Started here because it was a bit smaller space and we wanted to see how this Primer was working before we take off doing the roof/whole vehicle. We brushed primer on after work yesterday. One direction, let dry, then the other direction. Looks really good so far. It's all very exciting!!! While we're doing this, we have been sanding other parts of the bus that have rust and used Rustoleum Rust Stop spray (from Menards). These spots were treated with an extra coat of Primer.
My baby is going to be RUST FREE!! (haha, I know someone will have a comment on this)
Primer I'm using is Rustoleum Primer Surfacer (from AutoZone). It's drying very fast so we're not doing this in the middle of the day. It can be sanded as needed. Good thing is... it's going on easy and quick. I got 2 gallons of it so we'll see if that lasts the whole bus or if I'll need to get more.
So. Very. Excited!! Woot!
AND, to top things off, Power Inlet and Dogbone were delivered yesterday!!! Power Center and Air Conditioner on their way!
