Applying paint

There is molding that goes from the bottom of the coach to the roof on both sides of the coach at the rear of each side. The paint has chipped (yes, chipped) off in several places. I have the correct color paint to paint it with. What is the best way to apply it? Should I apply some base before I apply the paint? Should I use a bristle brush? Foam brush? I'm open to any suggestions.

I have the had to repaint areas of mine. In 07 the lower part of the rear cap came loose from the side of the coach. The paint on the molding got chipped badly. WRV did a lousy job of attaching it. I used a can of spray paint Duplicolor from a local auto parts store that matched close enough for me. I just used masking tape to protect the adjoining areas and had at it. Looks great. If you want to get fancy get a can of adhesion promoter and use it first. I have never had any luck brushing any kind of automotive paint, so I am no help there. If you want to try Duplicolor in a spray can I can post the color I used. Our coaches appear to have the same paint scheme.

I just finished a big spot below the rear License plate where the DW and my Buddy backed me into my cargo trailer. Almost looks like new.

Has your front diamond shield started to show hair line scratches? I am looking for a way to slow the deterioration down. My Truck started showing marks 3 years ago and now looks like ****. I am sure I can remove it from the truck but I am Leary on the coach. I am afraid the paint will come off with the protective film.

I would suggest that you get a product called Bulldog form an auto paint store. It's clear and an adhesion promoter used on flexible bumpers. Spray it on after taping the area off and sanding it. After the Bulldog dries spray your top coat on. For a sprayer on small work areas go to Home Depot and but a PreVal sprayer. Very easy to use and does not need a compressor.
If you can paint with a spray can you can do it as described above..
