What u guys think. I wanted a patina Bus that showed it’s age. The nose was wrecked so it had to be stripped to get worked. So the nose is going to be nice and straight and shiny. The rest of the bus is going to be nice and straight as a driver bus should be thanksvto pat an my euro ragtop bug trade off. Just gotta step up and figure out what to do with the paint. Fuck the OG and paint it shiny dove blue. Whatcha think guys. I need some centsWillyModeratorJune 14, 2018 at 1:22 pmPost count: 508
I think with all the hours you’ve put in and how much more stripping you still have to do you’re better off just DA-ing the whole thing and repaint it all… With all the blending you’d have to do as well… there just isn’t much OG Dove Blue to blend into!
If you’re worried about having a shiny bus and scratching it up off-roading and camping you don’t have to take it that far, just spot spread the low spots, DA the whole thing, poly it, and paint it! Thats all we did to Glenn’s car and it took way less time and effort than taking it to the level I am now. Guilt free shiny paint is the way to go in my opinion Jesse! ????PeteParticipantJune 14, 2018 at 1:43 pmPost count: 560
I remember JJ’s old ’57 kombi camper. I think he painted it exclusively in the dirty shop with 50% gloss or something, and joked that he didn’t spread the first ounce of mud on the roof. Knocking a little shine out of the paint hides a lot of body panel imperfections. I’d do what Will suggested; scuff it and shoot it, but with something less than 100% gloss paint.John JonesKeymasterJune 14, 2018 at 1:46 pmPost count: 3707
I think the 40% gloss is a good idea… Like my old kombi… Shiney wheels and bumpers….FranzKeymasterJune 14, 2018 at 2:39 pmPost count: 1740
Damn dude. Keep it OG paint. You’ll make baby Jesus cry if you paint over that beautiful patina.RustabusParticipantJune 14, 2018 at 11:27 pmPost count: 953
