Title: Clara Barton House Bus
Post by: Brill-o on August 26, 2006, 06:26:04 PM

Eve-

My Coach is getting some notoriety-- :)

The wife needed a bus pic for her Gov. web-site, and asked for one of mine.

Of course, ours is an eyesore, so I had to “doctor” it up in Paintshop-pro.  ;)

I wish it looked like this now, but I have the paint scheme planned (not like this) and it should look as good or better-

This is not as close as the original colour (I know, it’s too dark), and obviously a rookie job, but hey—maybe millions will see it!

I’m proud of the fact it’s my bus and on a public site-


Cheers..

That's awesome. NPS, no less. Wow. Nice Paintshop work, too.

And I can't wait to see your Brill's actual (non-virtual) transformation.

Old busses like yours are so cool. I'm glad that there's folks like you to restore them.

Thanks for the replies, guys- they’re always appreciated!  :)

It wasn’t too hard a job, actually-

Bk-
I like the way you worded that (miss-spelled or not)
I love to grab a “pint” with you and paint the coach!

SSB-
You shouldn’t have to wait much longer. I’ve been working on it everyday-
I should have the link up for my Brill adventures tomorrow—80+ pics’ worth!

Thanks again-  :)
