New Paint Job

Our 2008 Itasca Meridian 39Z that we bought last Fall has a lot of peeling clear coat. We decided to replace the clear coat, remove the Diamond Shield on the front and fix up all the the little rock dings. Jay at LaMesa, Ft. Pierce is doing a fantastic job. He is so into painting that he couldn't just fix the dings, so he is sanding and painting down one entire side. The Diamond Shield was a real mess. I don't know why they insist on putting that stuff on vehicles. After 3 years the manufacturer says it has to be removed. What's the point? Anyway the coach is gonna look good!

One more pic. Here's Jay working on it. He used to paint the concept cars for the Big Three in Detroit.

Very nice. I hope to paint my 2001 Mirada this summer. I'm looking at the themes like yors, modern and good looking

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

I'll bet you will have a better job than what CDI did for Winnebago. IMO from some of the paint I've seen on newer Winnebago's, they rush and don't put enough clear coat on them.

Yeah, after market paint jobs are soooo much better than what comes from the factory.

Yes he is redoing the base coat too. We are replacing a wheel well and one door that got too close to a very short post (didn't see it). Repair and paint $17k. Part of the cost is redoing a 5 color paint job. Lots of taping involved. He said to repaint a whole coach runs 50k. Lifetime warranty on the job. I expect to keep the coach for many years and don't foresee having to do another paint job.

The swirl design on the coaches look real nice until you have to pay to repaint them....ouch.
