Coach paint work deal!

When I had the wheelchair lift installed by the custom interiors company, I also had some paint work that needed to be done on the front right quarter and rear. That job was at another location that does all their paint/body work.

Well, a year later the front clear coat was really coming off bad. I called my installer and he linked me up with the painter that took me in right away to address the problem. The initial front paint repair was on the lower color on the right front quarter. I remember when I got it back the first time regretting not doing the entire front lower area. Money was really flowing outbound and I just figured I'd address it later.

I make arrangements to meet them first thing Friday morning and they tell me they can have me out by 2 p.m. Nice.

I asked how much to also paint the middle and driver side lower area and he told me $250. DEAL!! I then asked if he could also do the little three bar grill area just below the swing out door for generator access. He said sure, we'll do that too.

I pull in and he hands me a 50 amp power hookup and says just take it easy in your coach, turn the air on and we'll get this done. Nice!!!

Time comes to pay and his painter says we don't take credit cards.....

Well, all I have is $200 on my in cash....sorry, I did not know you did not take credit.

Painter says....don't worry, I think the owner will be ok with that. Give me a minute to talk to him.....ok....$200 is good...NICE!!!

If this job holds up and I have no reason to think it won't, it was a BARGAIN!! A bit of a hassle. But, what a deal and the coach looks so much better. A great experience. They did right by me and I do appreciate that!!
