Some professional painters will make the final coal very thin so it flows out more evenly and settle flatter.

Your bus is looking fantastic.

What you call a "bad day in the paint tent" I would call Fantastic progress. Beautiful work, if it was easy, anyone could do it.

Yes, what they said ^^^. I've never seen that putty trick before. Looks to have worked. Is the paint with hardener?

Looks great. Can you share more about using putty for the run? Never seen that either. What is the theory there?

It certainly saved me a lot of money spraying the bus myself.
Spraying the inside, outside and bottom of the bus with a professional painter would have cost me 4 times as much
But I think I also worked on it 10 times longer 😄
it's definitely not a perfect paint job but i'm happy with the result
i won't be afraid to take it on the road
One more advantage when i do have paint damage on the road don't have to worry about repairs anymore because nowÖ I have the skill to fix it 😂
