I don't know about other buses but just look at Huggy Bear.

 She was painted by star jet about 20 years ago.

Ah, yes, Ned. I forgot about Huggy. That was probably back when they took more pride in what they did, and they might have wanted to do a better job.

God bless,

John

Imron also comes in clear. I have had clear Imron applied over traditional paints such as DuPont. A local paint/body shop that I use does that on motorcycles because of it's durability.

Ned, your bus was painted before they came to Florida.  John Star was still with Dick when it was painted.
Jara told me at the time it was painted with Imron paint.  I don't think they started to use PPG base coat, clear coat until they came to Florida.

They were in Columbus last time I was out there (and that was fairly recent I might add). FWIW

John doesn't do buses anymore unless it is one that he did before. I talked to him about redoing our paint job but i don't have that kind of money yet. Smiley  His is doing airplanes now. As of 3 years ago he was in the Eugene area.

Jara(Huggy Bear) did a lot of work to the 4104 I am having the roof clear coat challenge with. I know Mr Voreck (who did my conversion)being a friend of Jara at the time had Starjet shoot my 4104.
Jara put cruise control/shepard steering/transit wheels,drums,axles on the front wheels.and a host of other modifications.

 Did Star Jet paint jerrys bus.

Haven't seen it yet but i know he is just about as choosy as you.

Saw him at the RV show in Charlotte Looking for ideas
.Said he was going to keep you busy doing them.
just kidding but my kids keep me busy.

Don't want to hog the post, but I had wondered what happened to Bob's 4104.  Bob was a very good friend of mine.  I could tell you some story's about Bob and that bus that would make the hair stand up.  For you people that didn't know Bob he was a Bendex engineer.  Bob knew more about air brakes than most all the people on the net put together.  I am glad to hear that Bob's old bus has a good home. 
Now for Jerry's paint, yes he did get it done at Star Jet.  They did a good job and got it finished on time.  That was a shock for me.  I also had mine painted at Star Jet when they were here in FL.  My paint is 19 years old and just this year some of the clear coat is starting to come off on the cap.  I also have a few places where something got too close and took off some paint.  I may get some work done on it this year, if the time and money are there.

Jack,

Bob,Babara,Tami and myself go way back. We all used to meet at the Converted Coach rallies. In those days his bus was red and they pulled a Honda car. He gave me a E-3 foot valve for my 4104, this as he new being a Bendix engineer was an upgrade to replaced the OEM E-1 that came from the factory.

John

PS I was able to purchase Bobs bus from my good friend Leroy.

Keeping one's bus in a covered area, away from sunlight and in moderate temperatures will make a great difference in any paint job. Sometimes the paint problem is not caused by the painter. Even so, I have seen many factory paint jobs with peeling clearcoat and fading pigment.
