Cheri, that is a great photo of you with your bus. You do, indeed, look very happy.

Re: My Progress

Rainbow, That's what I thought of when I saw your bus.......
Lesson's we all learn the hard way, right tool for the job, masking tape doesn't work well for painting...
The blue tape is the only way to go......
Bus is looking good.........

Re: My Progress

I love the sun on the hood! I'm also going to be using sun and tree motifs on my bus if I ever get around to adding some artistic touches. I'm not a real artist, but I play one on TV. Okay, that's a lie, I don't even play one on TV. But I have friends who are artists... does that count?

Reminds me of the flag of Japan..... The rising Sun..
That would look good on the 'Going to the Sun Road" in Montana (Glacier National Park) ......

Re: My Progress >> More photos! Paint almost done

Very nice paint work! I love the little flowers around the driver's door. Looks like a lot of detailed work. "Manic Organic" eh? I think they have a treatment for that. Lithium Carbonate, I believe, or Carbamezapine. Take some of that and you'll be more "Even-Keel Organic". But that wouldn't be as much fun now would it?!
