Almost Finished With The Makeover

Got the Coach back from the graphics shop yesterday. New awnings also. Just a couple of more projects and we will have it ready to go for the next several years. I will post a few more photos later this weekend.

Thanks for the comments everyone. The graphics aren't complete yet but we are leaving Tuesday for a 2 week trip and will take it back in later. They are vinyl and were done by a local guy that does full RV wraps. It is an Avery vinyl with a 7 year warranty but the installer said it will last a few more than that with a little TLC.

We also recovered all the window valances, dining chairs and headboard (& added a memory foam mattress). I changed the faucet in the bath and used some of the same tile as the kitchen for the little backsplash around the sink.

I removed quite a few mirrors thru out and replaced with smoked Plexiglas on the cabinet doors. Installed flat screen TV in both living area and bedroom. I still need to redo the TV in the overhead as I don't like the way it looks now but that can wait.

The last big thing is the carpet and I will get on that sometime when it cools down a little. We are on about 20 days in a row over 100 here in Dallas.

Looks great. I really like the colors.

Sure would like to see pictures of all the upgrades you've done. Perhaps next year at the Orphen Rally we can all see it in person.

Thanks Dick the rally next year sounds like a plan. Also many thanks to you and Dan for your help during this somewhat long process. Still having to work full time and doing the work made for a slow labor of love.

Thanks Again and I will get some more photos posted soon.

Bill

Real nice !

Funny how some models went out with high mirrors like I have, and some have low mounted mirrors, on basically the same front cap !
