Bus Kote

I am preparing to apply bus Kote to the roof of my 34.5. Does anyone have pictures of their application. Trying to figure out where the best place is to start and stop. Don't want it to look like a frosted cupcake.
Thanks Brock

Bella's was installed level with the top of the windscreens, which means it is about half way up the VistaView windows (which are installed about 2" lower than factory)



Certainly not as noticiable on a painted Argosy, if I was applying to an Airstream I would probably have stopped at the edges of the front and rear end cap and just down the roof between those two.

Thanks,
I think I can see the line of the Bus Kote. I saw one with the bus kote extended down the back of the end cap to a ducks tail and didn't like that. I have two black stripes above the awning the length of the MH and think I wil go a couple of inches in from that and then just do past the seam on the front and rear end caps. Don't want it too visable from the ground but enough to seal and cool.

I plan to paint my 345 from above the awning on the Pass side to the roof joint on the Drivers side.
Nothing on the front or rear caps, by stopping at the joint.

I am currently stripping my roof, before I install the new Penguin 15,000 AC/Heat Pump units we will sand the roof in between the seems, prime with epoxy, and then paint with Gloss White Imron for durability, I don't think our work will be visible from the ground.

You know...it's never done ! None of them are ever done. I guess that's part of the "Fun". Regards, Bob
