Updates to my Pace Arrow

After all I've done to it I guess it's time to post some pictures of it, unfortunately most of them will be of the finished product

This is from it's first rip after being purchased in lower CA, it was a great first trip at 2200 miles plus. You need to bear in mind it is also my first RV.




Shortly after getting home it got it's aluminum wheels and stripes painted on the slide outs

I bought a new TV for the rear on the way home, the extra space behind the TV is now used to store my shoes and boots

Did you spray clear over it when done or did you just spray on the stripes? Where did you get the paint codes for the stripe colors ... I wouldnt mind doing ours... I really think it ups the looks of the unit.No building to do it in but I have faith I can do it here in my drive...I have painted many of cars outside

It was clear coated and the paint codes were on a decal in the front of the bedroom closet along with weights and some other information


It looks like we have the same colors.

Whats funny John is your profile picture looks as if its the gray blue colors and not the creme color.When we found our on Craigslist last year, the pictures were taking at dusk on a farm and it looked like your profile picture but when we walked in his pole barn too look at it we were surprised to be looking at a Creme colored one.I will look at the cabinet door when we get it out of storage here in March for the color codes if not will get yours.Thanks

This will be the 2nd one that painted something on the exterior and had it come out nice.
Did you just use a spray can paint? Or a professional sprayer?
Did you have the paint cans made?
Looks really nice.
I stripped off the front strips last summer. I have the paint in spray cans, but the weather turned cool. My brother had a guy paint one of his cars in his front yard. To say the least I laughed but when I got out there to look at it we ended up laughing at me. Turned out beautiful
I'm going to just do it come spring time and hope I have as good of luck as you did.
Thanks,
Tim

I built a paint booth to paint this truck I built because there was not a booth big enough within 400 miles

That's the way to do it just dive in then when they come out like yours you just have to hope nobody gets near enough to damage it.

No more stiff leg under the dinette table with the Dream Table conversion. Truly a one handed operation if you wish, but fast and easy one or two handed

John, can you give some more info and where to purchase that Dream table leg setup? Do I understand correctly that I can install that in place of the folding leg that is on my dinette now? Thanks.
