2012 Fresh Paint Days Applications Available


Tired of looking at that empty, old worn-down building in your community...transform it with the help of a 2012 Fresh Paint Days in Oklahoma Grant!

Selected participants will restore the exterior of a structure during the month of September with the use of paint, donated by H.I.S. Coatings of Oklahoma City, a stipend to purchase supplies, funded by Public Service Company of Oklahoma, and a lot of elbow grease from willing volunteers. KOB will even deliver the paint within a reasonable driving distance from your location.

This exciting and unique program not only challenges groups to transform a building or structure with the donated paint, but it also creates an excitement that is contagious throughout the community. Often, this leads to other community improvement projects throughout the year.

Applications will be accepted only online and the deadline is July 31, 2012. You can find the application, project requirements, a tentative program calendar and much more by clicking here.

New for 2012 - We're Going Social! The winner of this year's Best Visual Impact Award will be selected by Oklahomans during KOB's "Communities Primed for Change" contest. This social media contest will highlight your before & after photos by posting them to KOB's Facebook contest page. The public will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite transformation that took place during Fresh Paint Days. The finalists will be named prior to the annual Environmental Excellence Awards Celebration on November 1, but the winner won't be revealed until that exciting evening at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

The best way is to take off the tank.Turn off the water source to the toelit and flush it. The tank shouldn't fill up now. There should be some attachment points in the inside of the tank to remove it from the base I would use a towel to dry out the tank before removing it so there's less mess.Once you remove the tank, you should be ready to paint.If there aren't attachment points where you can remove the tank from the base, then you will probably have to remove the toelit from the floor.This is more messy, but it can be done. disconnect the water source from the toelit, then unbolt the attachment points from the base and the floor.The toelit has a wax gasket that keeps the waste from leaking out when flushing. I would go ahead and buy a new gasket in case it gets damaged from the removal of the base.After painting the wall, just do everything in reverse and you should be good to go. Don't forget to turn on the water source and fill the tank again.Good luck.
