Nothing new yet...
They stopped last week to do a truck and some construction equipment. They have it until about the first week of April (Then I need it) so they are taking their time, and I rather them do that and chip away at it, and do it right.
It's a big job body working so many custom made parts.

This week, they plan to have the top half primed, then it will be easier to see and work out more imperfections, Then we'll talk about paint, and the final design

Ok, my bus is back in the shop now, and we are on the home run stretch

They started with the first coat of Black, for the section that will be black

First off, it wont be exactly the same, but here is the general look im going for with the black and tan.



And here is the start of it.





Should come together pretty fast now

Can't wait to see the finished product. That is a nice concept with great colors.

I have followed your project from day one and can't wait to see the paint go on.
Keep us posted.

We are getting a little closer..... Black and Cream base coats are on

The black line is only tape, an experiment at this point to see what looks good with some paint in designs.

Starting to look like a finished project. I think you're on the right path. You can let your imagination be the guide from here on out. You might have a graphic designer take a look at it or your neighborhood artist or "tagger". I think we are all excited to see this one once its finished. I know I am.

They happen to have a gallon of this green paint at the shop, and asked if I would be interested in doing some lines with this colour...... I like the colour, but not sure it works with my coach....

What do you think? I am thinking either a dark earth tone type colour, or maybe even a dark red would look good.

The only green I can say I really like is on Rob's coach. The one in your picture.....not so much. But hey, it's your coach, if you like it go for it. My opinion is worth what you paid for it.
I liked the copperish colors you showed in the one design. Deep reds would be good too.
