We at Rust Bullet love a good home project. In recent years, we’ve seen the DIY community embrace the conversion of school buses and VW buses into campers, RVs, commercial businesses and even “tiny homes”. These projects are a lot of work, but we celebrate the breathing of life back into vehicles once destined for the junk pile. In this article we discuss how people use converted buses, the difficulties of bus conversion and how Rust Bullet can aid in the transformative process.
Bus Conversion Uses
School bus conversions may have been popularized by events such as Burning Man, but other folks use these buses in increasingly inventive ways. A number of companies have created mobile gymnastics facilities inside school buses.

Here are just a few examples of the infinite ingenuity of bus conversion fanatics.
What Challenges Do Bus Conversions Pose?
The biggest challenge facing bus conversion projects is rust. Rust doesn’t just affect the aesthetic appeal of the vehicle, it also deteriorates the structural integrity. You don’t want to endanger yourself, your family or the public by traveling around in or occupying a rusted vehicle.
Moisture can quickly infiltrate the metals on a bus and weaken the entire system. Applying a Rust Bullet Coating can quickly and effectively cease rust issues and strengthen your bus.
Chlorides also deteriorate the undercarriage of a bus. They can be found in everyday products such as road salt. Your bus likely comes into contact with these chemicals daily, especially in colder climates.
Fight moisture, chlorides and rust by applying Rust Bullet over rusted metal. Rust Bullet penetrates the substrate, dehydrates the rust, until reaching the metal. This allows the resin to become intertwined with the rust, then becomes part of the coating and solidifies into an armor tough coating with phenomenal adhesion.
Rust Bullet offers a number of fantastic features including:
- No Topcoat Required
- UV, Chemical, Scratch and Chip Resistant
- Little to No Surface Prep
- Superior Patented Technology
- Two United States Patents
Other rust paint and rust prevention sprays are effective for weeks and in some cases months. Rust Bullet can last up to ten years if properly applied!
