Part 1 of 2 - Lottie's (Proposed) New Look
As I quickly run out of this year's allocation of camping weather, I am painfully aware of my lack of restoration progress. I'll plead poverty, but my disappointment doesn't accept excuses. Six months have slipped through my fingers. Lottie has sat in the garage; a lonely lady, surrounded by the piles of her parts and I haven't had the means to pay her any attention.
But things have begun to change! I have a few dollars in my pocket and, like a young man on payday, I plan to come-a-callin' to Miss Lottie, eager to earn her affection again. It's going to take flowers (exterior parts), candy (motor parts), and a pretty dress (paint), but I'll have this neglected lady preening in society soon enough.
To compare the innumerable options, I could have been content with looking at pictures of other buses' paint, but, no … that would be too easy. I'm much too obsessive/perfectionistic/nerdy/creative to NOT go to all the trouble of creating a photoshop layout that will allow me to change Lottie's colors on demand (yeah, I just shake my head at myself, too.)
