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

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.........

Yes... but you did it all by yourself..........

Still good looking bus and you'll get er done....

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? :lol:

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) ...... 8)

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?! :lol:

Really nice looking bus, inside and out..........
how do the things inside the bus stay in place while you drive?

If it where my bus ........ I would mount the solar panels on the roof and leave em.........
The battery compartment would be underneath the bus and and vented outside, the electronic's ie Inverter/controller needs to be inside and separate from the batteries.....

I love your bus. It is so cheery to look at. I am concerned for your safety though. The frig and for that matter anything else in the bus that is not securly tied down simply will not "remain put" in the event of a wreck--it will fly around like an unguided missle smashing whatever it comes into contact with. I'm sure many folks on this site can give you ideas as how to tie stuff down and bungi cords don't count. My two cents worth.

jack is right... :D
you should be able to have a welding shop make a battery box so you can mount your golf cart batteries out of the way and out of sight...

Is all the art work hand painted?...or vynal...if hand painted that is so awesome...crisp lines etc...almost looks like a wrap....very good job.
And like Ol'T said it makes me smile everytime I look at it :mrgreen:
