Re: my bus

after the base color how many spray cans did it take to paint your bus, mine is the same size and I would like mine to be pink camo!

my father in law did the painting. i dont think he actually put a base coat down. it still needs a couple of coats and some clear coat i imagine. im not a painter. he was just in a hurry to change it from the tacky yellow. he has put $100 in the roughly $5/can camo paint at walmart and says he has 2 coats on most of it. i took it camping down behind a farmers field back through a bunch of low hanging trees last weekend and you can see where it scratched some off.
