Bus: First Makeover

April 25, 2010

James McKay came over today to help me paint the nose of my 1965 VW Bus. There was a big primer gray patch that the Bus Pilots harassed me about and since it is almost time for our May Day show again I figured I should get it taken care of. Of course my solution was a rattle can job with some white Rustoleum, but it does the trick for now. As we were prepping I did find out that the original white is under the primer. No idea why all that primer was under there. I didn’t feel like sanding it down so we masked it off and went with the rattle cans. It’s not perfect, but if you don’t look close you’ll never notice. The white I got is also pretty close to the original.
