All of the doors and wheel wells are finished, all the second color paints are in and we started to tape off for the color design planed for the second color. But business has dictated we put the MH on the shelf for a few days. We do have next week free and hope to get fll bore getting it finished up.

You can use a projector to layout the design on the coach. You dont want to use vinyl graphics. They are cheap, and won't last long.

The tape were laying out is to mask it off, we're painting them on so it's permanent.

DH keeps telling me to read and enjoy, but under no condition think we are ever going to do something like that.
I'm waiting for the next installment.
Thanks for taking us along on your journey.

Yes, you know we are all living vicariously through you with this refit. Something many of us can only dream of doing.

I'm afraid we have been really delayed over the summer as its our busy season and about 60% of our annual revenue is generated from June-Aug so we have been busy. As a result we have lacked the manpower to dedicate to the cause. But.....we have a break next week and I hope to get the painting done and new doors reinstalled so with luck we might actually have an update.

Thanks for all the interest!

We are glad that you are busy with work. That means that you'll have the funds to pay for your restoration. But do check in once every couple of days as we are waiting with baited breath for your updates.

Ok everyone thanks for your patience, I finally have some updated reports and photo's.

Currently all the new basement doors and wheel wells are completed, they have the first coat of primer on them, sadly I underestimated the amount of primer required so I have had to order another quart and converter. So we are at a stand still until the material arrives. In the first photo if you look just left of the forklift you will see the a few doors and panels lined up against the wall where they were placed to shoot with primer.

We sprayed the secondary color today. The first color was metallic silver, this new color is called Cayenne Red Metallic. The photo's will make it appear its now the dominate color but this is due to the silver being covered by masking paper. Although I think the red may be about 55% of the primary color when were done. Hard to tell until we unwrap it and get a look. I think after we do all the basement doors and wheel wells in the red it may be dominate.

Here is some updated pictures. Thanks for following along everyone!!!

This is taped and masked off for the red.






First coats of the red








This is after the final coat of red












I will remove the masking paper in a day or so and take more photo's. After we get the basement doors and wheel panels done they also get red, as does the side mirrors. The coach next will get several coats of clear coat which is next.
