You know, I just can't be left alone. I do bad things when I'm left alone.

Here's a pic of the bus when the PO got it:

So, I figured the bus would look better in original paint (except the nose obviously). Well, it turns out it has been painted a few, white, another white, some brown spots, primer, original pearl white. The bad part is that the og paint is gone in many areas. I've used about 6-7 cans of oven cleaner and a little bit of paint stripper. I've used a plastic bristled brush, a scotch-brite pad (brown one), a bondo spreader, a wide putty knife, rags, water, etc. of course, my pressure washer pull cord broke right when I needed it. Even the pop-top has 2-3 layers of paint on it.

One of my favorite PO "fixes" so far...bondo on top of 40 yr old rubber with silicone on top, then painted white. Nice.

No pics, but oh well, if you really, really need to see metal removed, turn off your computer and work on your car... ~ Ray-Dean
