I decided since I drove it, I should make it one color!

    Well, I aint done yet, its maybe half painted, took 12 cans so far. Its obnoxious ass bright yellow. I'm going to finish it off with a 3" black stripe down the sides with "SHORT BUS" inset in the stripe. It was getting dark when I ran out of cans (used 12 so far today), so the pics suck.

    I didn't do ANY body work besides stripping the moulding off. It's gunna get dented again anyway, why bother?

    Front fender needs another coat or two, dark primer is bleeding through the paint really bad...

    This side I've only done the tub so far. I've started on the door where it had primer, to start trying to get the darker color covered up.

    I *will* drive this thing to a Meet & Greet. Will be late november, early december. So we have to have a meet around that time. Probably won't be able to wheel it, I got other things to spend money on than a front driveshaft right now.

    Almost done...

    So I got all the yellow down except the hood and half the roof this morning...
    I'll finish it this weekend or monday, then wait a day or two, and do the black striping work later in the week.
