    i would like to have stripes but not in brown as the bus is blue because that would look like poo in the sea . the problem you have is two tone poo and you need solid poo ,thats to say
    " just one sheet"

    Is that the only panel where you have that colour variation?

    Can't you just feather in a better match there for now? If you intend to do the whole thing in the future it wouldn't have to be perfect...

  19. Apart from the fact that I don't really like the stripes on the sides, why waste any money on these when it won't solve the basic issue?

    I would say either do the primered areas with a rattle can and feather it in / polish as best you can, or spray all 3 affected panels, either with a can or at a spray shop. The money in painting is all prep - do you know anyone in the business? Do the sanding yourself (and filling if you are really keen, but the panels do look OK) and then just get those 3 panels painted. That won't cost much.
