New Garb for The DogHouse

Hi Gang,

This is not a new rig, but it looks like it. We had our 2004 Winnebago Adventurer painted by Precision Painting (PP) in Bremen, IN. We are thrilled. The results are impressive and the crew was a pleasure to work with.

Our son, Marshall B. Bachelder, is an artist and created the original design. He sent large drawings to PP and they worked carefully to put the design on our motorhome.

The greyhound silhouettes are by Mike Frazer, Greensboro, NC. We reproduced them with his permission.

I'll now attempt to upload before and after shots. I'm new to this part.

Bruce

I've been looking for unique paint jobs and can't wait to see yours.

Evidently, I failed the uploading. I'll try again.

Hi Michelle,

I'm happy to see a response to my post. I'd be happier if I could figure out how to post the pictures! I've tried twice and don't see anything.

I'll try again . . . it seems to say I have attachments. I think I'm stumped.

Bruce

No help here...

Hi Bruce,

I can't post pics to the forum either. I think you have to have them posted somewhere on the internet in those photo books or something. As a result I just post stuff to my blog and then put a link in.

I understand from another post you made you also spruced up the interior with new flooring. Would love to see your new inside as well as the outside. I'm very intrigued by your dog silhouette idea.

Michelle

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

Hi Michelle,

I've read a bit more and understand a bit more, but won't get anything up tonight. Evidently, I have managed to get 3 pictures, a "before" and 2 "afters" stored on the iRV2 servers, but at this point I have no idea how to display them.

I'll plan on getting some pictures of the inside to show what we did there. I'm not sure the inside will look all that different from the way it shipped. We had new carpet put in with an eye to convenience and comfort for our 5 greyhounds. We had the thickest pad and carpet installed that they could install. Now we no longer have to spread wool rugs on top of the original carpet and the bony greyhounds are very comfortable.

I'll try to get the pictures posted in usable form as quickly as I can. Sometimes sleeping on one of these computer challenges is all it takes <g>.

The greyhound silhouettes are a variation on logos used by Greyhound Friends of North Carolina. Mike, the artist, is a graphics professional and his file scaled up beautifully from a small decal size to a rather large display across the end cap.

Bruce

Hi Lori,

To the best of my knowledge I did just this, twice, and nothing has shown up in my post. I did read that I have things on the iRV2 server.

I'll try again with your instructions right in front of me and see what happens.

Thanks,
Bruce

Love it!

I love it! Very unique. If I see you at a campground I'll say hello.

Hi Lori,

thanks again for your help.

The painters did a great job. And I want to emphasize, since "graphics" is sometimes used to refer to decals as opposed to paint, the design is in paint with a total of 21-23 coats, starting with primer and finishing with 5 clear coats.

Now I can close down and rest easy tonight

Bruce
