Painted the bottom side today after a lot of prep work
There are so many angles and takes so long to paint it
but happy with the job and getting closer now

Wow, very nice work.
Mind you, I looked at the word "paint" and thought "You've got to be kidding??!!"..........until I saw that you're on the Sunny Coast.
Wish it was painting weather down here...... :x
Cheers & God Bless

Looking great Rick. Painting the underside of buses is not a fun job, almost as bad as painting inside a treasure chest!
