Painted My Compartment Door Handles

I grew tired of my faded black compartment and entry door handles, so I had Sherwin Williams mix me up some aerosol paint to match Fleetwood's color code chart.

Craig,

Nice work! This is another project I've been wanting to do also. I think I'll just quit my job and spend more time on my coach

Great job, Craig. I've been battling mine with Back to Black for years. Color matching to the full body paint is so much classier. Thanks for the inspiration.

Too bad FW doesn't take the extra step & do this. They're still using either black or chromed handles. Both rather cheezy.

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

I added a trapdoor to the main entry of my Damon...it is really very nice to avoid the trip hazard for the family while driving or while staying in for the night.

I posted my updates back on page 30, Since then I have repaired lots although not really updates. One update was getting rid of the old single din cassette stereo and fitting a new Clarion double din with Nav.

Enjoy!!
