Executive repaint

New to the forum and the first thread so hello to all! I purchased a old 77 31' executive rv and the wife said it needs new paint. We plan on using this to go to racing tracks around our area and she wanted it painted with the tracks in mind... So black, white and silver. I own a sign shop and used the drawing programs to come up with an idea she liked and here it is. I started painting using a 2 part self etching primer and acrylic epoxy paint. Can wait to finish it but the weather will not let me yet. Ill post more as I go.

had a new one of those in 1977 great m/h and that 440 would pass every thing on the road but a gas station mine had twin beds and rear bath . I don't think it ever gave me any trouble except for a frozen water line (my fault) i hope you and the DW enjoy and have a lot of good times in it at the races. and paint looks real race like ,so it should turn a few heads

Awesome is right!

Do you mind telling us how you translated the graphics on the computer to the actual RV?

Is it something a DIYer could do?

I was just looking for rim simulators!

I took a digital picture of the rv and put it in corel draw, added the graphics and then measured points on the rv where the graphics started to where they stoped. Ran the graphics on the plotter, taped them and used watered down windex sprayed all over the graphics area - this helps give me time to move them and when applied it will help remove any bubbles in the vynil. And yes anyone can do it - at my shop I encourage most customers to do it themselves. It will help save them money.

Its not only for the races, we will be going camping ( I cant wait )!

P.S. The bottom pic is the design from the computer

What a great looking rig. A little paint can do wonders. Great graphics as well.
