Vehicle for national road tour wrapped in Region 8

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Veterans for American Power tour bus headed for Little Rock made a stop in Jonesboro on Sunday.  The stop wasn't to stay in town, but to be wrapped up from top to bottom to leave on a bus tour.

Around 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, gaphic installers at Supertints began working to fully wrap a 45 foot RV for the Operation Free Bus tour.

According to Supertints graphic installer, John Roades, this is the biggest project they've ever had to wrap and it is also the quickest turn-over they've had to do!  The team had until 6 p.m. Sunday night to get the job done.

"It's been an experience.  Pretty difficult vehicle to wrap.  We haven't done an install this large before, not on a forty-five foot Prevos," said Roades.

The bus is part of a group tour that will be traveling the nation.  Operation Free is a coalition of veterans and security organizations that are working towards getting America to run on clean energy.
