OK, a few of you have asked how much. I'm not one to put prices out there, since they're likely to be different for each coach. I think it depends on what you want, and how much additional work the coach body needs, or things you might want done while they have it.

We didn't need any repair work, so it was all prepping, painting, and finishing. They also use a graphics company to create the spray mask that will be applied to the coach, vs some shops just draw it by hand and mask it off with tape. Using a spray mask for your design, is a more expensive process, which yields top quality results.

The present cost to do a 3 or 4 color paint job as described, up to 40', is 12k. But I am not speaking for them, as I am only a customer, and I have no knowledge of their pricing structure. My friend who had the sidewalls replaced, then full-body paint, on his Alfa, was well north of 20k.

They are good people, and easy to deal with. I would use them again.

CaptBill--I think it came out great! Not too busy, but a nice full body paint job.

Can you tell me what "blue-inked" means? Never heard of it. Is it a process of drawing out the stripes on the body, prior to painting?

Thanks, Fran

Fran, 'blue-inked' is the term they used to describe how they can see imperfections in the sanded body. After priming, they put on a thick, wash mit sort of glove, that is covered in a blue ink. The whole coach takes on a light blue hue. After sanding, imperfections such as scratches or uneven areas, show up, where the blue had not been removed. They mark all those areas, go back to fill and re-sand, to make ready for paint.

I don't know if they still have a video up on their website, but if they do, you can see itbeing done. The vid was near the bottom of their website home page.

Very nice! I've given thought to doing the same, but I need to quit scraping trees first.

Rear cap

Washed and back in the barn until the next trip, so it's hard to take pics. But for those that wanted to see how we did the rear cap, and name, here's an angled shot. No decals; it's all paint. The name was also done as a laser-cut spray mask, so it is true to the original, as we wanted.

Tastefully done and beautiful in my opinion.

Did you get some touch up paint from their mixing efforts or will having the paint codes achieve the same purpose?

The site is still there and they have a video of a mh being done. and a 2 year warranty. I've been tossing the idea of haveing the 82 painted but I am not sure about all the graphics I wonder if just having the old colors redone?
