Painting the Bus – midway

So, I can’t quite say ‘phew’ with a brush to the past, as we are as yet only halfway.

These past few weeks we have been, shoulders first, forging into a fog of paint. Finally, though, the largest chunk is behind us, and with imperfections everywhere we have simply pressed on to three coats later.

Next to come ‘Deep Ocean’ strips across the top and bottom and our lovely, shiny chrome back on.

Above are all ‘before’ (or more accurately, prepping as this has been etch primed).

Following are ‘midway’ three coats of ‘Spanish Quarter Cream’ topcoat. White Bedford Bus White Bedford Without the plastic (shame) it is sharper, but still naked. I can’t wait to dress it up!
