- 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).
- It will still take a lot longer than paint can indicates to dry.
- 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.
So. Much. Rain.
I wonder how well a bus converts to an ark… 😛
Bus project is still a go, funding not so much. Go go gadget job hunt.
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.
My truck has been kidnapped by the folks for getting my youngest brother to college for another couple weeks. Bleh.
