  1. When paint­ing the inside, forced ven­ti­la­tion is key.  Ven­ti­late the hell out of the bus once it is no longer tacky (bugs won’t stick to it).
  2. It will still take a lot longer than paint can indi­cates to dry.
  3. Let it dry prop­er­ly.  No mat­ter how long it ends up tak­ing.

Bus smoke!  Don’t  breathe this!

Seri­ous­ly.  Wear a mask.  That thick white pow­der is zinc oxide.  You know, the stuff that makes welders sick?  While I was smart enough to wear the mask for the bulk of today’s exper­i­men­tal scrub­bing in a dry area, I failed to do so in a patch at the back door.  It wasn’t much, but it was enough to make me feel like crap.  It isn’t just for welders to keep in mind.

Orig­i­nal angry rant removed.  I was fed some extreme­ly bad infor­ma­tion by an instruc­tor for the com­pa­ny I had orig­i­nal select­ed and was turned away from.  Things were cleared up soon after with TDPS and the awe­some instruc­tors I end­ed up going with.
