Painted Our Bus

We recently finished painting our bus, TheGreeneBus!!! Wanted to share photos of the finished product! A 1999 Gillig Transit with a 10.8 Cummins engine. It took me an entire week to paint the 40 footer including the roof. We used Henry’s tropicool on the roof and back. The rest is exterior house paint. sherman Williams everlast to be exact. I painted it all my hand using rollers and brushes! How good it feels to finish a project!!!

Great work, looks awesome! How many gallons of each did you end up using?



I'm headed toward doing mine soon myself!

How many gallons

We did two coats on both the sides and roof. We used about 3 gallons of Henry’s tropicool and almost two gallons of the exterior paint.
