About a week ago we were contacted by the owner of the Language Truck, Bridget Hayes. This is a mobile class room.  The nice  thing about this truck is that it comes to you, set up and ready to go, tutoring in several fields of education (English, Spanish, and Computer classes).  This Language truck will go to any business, event, church, neighborhood, and other locations.  Language Truck is a mini-bus-classroom that provides workstations with laptop computers and wireless internet for up to 10 adults. Now how cool is that!!

Bridget Hayes and I sat down for about and hour last week and she expressed to me how important this project is to her and how much time, effort and of course money she has invested so far and one of the last things to do was to get it painted.  Although Bridget went to several AutoBody shops in the area she had expressed to me she just didn’t feel like she was being treated right.
After talking to Bridget we walked outside and took a look at her Language truck and went over all the things that she wanted to get done.
First and foremost was the color scheme and how the colors would flow together. I expressed my opinions and gave Bridget some options to think about.

A few days later I contacted Bridget again and we both decided to go ahead with this project.
Over the next few weeks we are going to be doing a lot of things to the Language truck and I will be posting pictures of the complete progress of it so please stay tuned in this is going to be one nice ride.

Removing the decalsSanding the paint
Just a little follow up. Language truck is about 95% sanded and we are just going over the nooks and crannies to make sure the truck is completely sanded. Finished off the body work and primed the area’s. Removed the Stop sign for now. Getting ready to re caulking tomorrow. We are getting close to painting!!!!

UPDATE! 02/19/2012

The colors have been picked out and painted on the Language Truck, first we painted the lower cream first earlier in the week. Making sure we used a good epoxy sealer on the Language truck first. We applied 3 coats of the cream color to make sure is had good coverage.

The upper color was painted next, White is what was choose for this. Paying close attention to detail we spend some extra time masking off the cream. the end result was well worth it.

The next thing we have to do is to paint the silver on the bumpers, mirrors, and flashing light covers, this will add some nice accent color to the white and cream. The last thing we are going to do is add all the logo’s to the language truck. Sometime early next week this will happen, so please stay tuned with this!

Here is a short video of the Language truck painted with both colors and out of the booth
