DriVer, the coach looks GREAT! It's going to be FANTASTIC when they finish up the last pieces and you get it back!

I think it's a very wise decision to invest in your current coach vs. purchasing new. You just saved about $100K!

You are going to LOVE full body paint. So much easier to take care of and it will look great for a very long time. The wash-wax-all stuff really works great taking care of it too.

You and Colleen will love it. Can't wait to see it in the future.

Thanks Don. That's what we said; you can buy a whole brand new set of problems or buy somebody else's set of problems. Better off keeping the problems that I have. At least I know what those are.

That's one sharp coach paint job ya got there! The look of a new coach at a fraction of the cost.

When it's all done, dig in your photo archives & post a side-by-side set of old & new. That's when it'll really hit how great she looks.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

That's one thing that I have already planned for. I can take very close to the exact same before and after shots once I get the rig home.
The befores of course are on file.

When I redid all my graphics I left off all the names and logos. I like the clean looks.

The hood hinges on my '04 don't have any springs, but I've had to adjust them a few times over the years. The last time I did it, I had run out of adjustment and had to shim them a bit to get the top of the hood in tight.

It's on my to do list to look at exactly has allowed the change in alignment. Something must be bending or wearing some where. Thought about investigating the newer models where the hood opens up (instead of down), that'd improve access quite a bit.

It will be interesting to see what new hinges do for you.

Does the new paint job extend to the ends of the slides when extended? When our coach was repainted, they did the slide ends, and even put the stripes on the end walls of the slides so it matched when opened! Your coach will have a whole new "FEEL" to it now!

On the decals, I say leave them off so you can drive other RV'ers on the highway crazy trying to figure out what your coach is! By the way, I've been told a time or two that I have a mean streak!

I saw an RDP in Florida this past January that was just freshly painted and unless the owner told me what kind of rig it was, without a name showing anywhere, I was at a loss to come up with the correct type. "Keep em' guessing!:

I previously wrote that not so long ago, 40 foot RDPs to a large degree had common characteristics and looked very similar. I wouldn't say that's the case today with all the creative front cap design work and LED lighting packages.

All I'm doing is the front Winnebago brand name, in raised chrome letters, on the hood, in case anyone asks and I'm not home.
