I just finished mine, Spent about $1000 and about 100 hours of labor. I started in mid July and finished up a few weeks ago, working on weekends and in evening.. I used about 4 gallons of single stage urethane and a spray gun

I did two articles:

1) a "HOW-TO" of lessons learned and how to do this. Lot of photos

New paint for the ole Southwind 1999 Southwind 35S

2) a day by day detailed log with a lot of photos of the progress.

Love the black "vine"?
So sick of seeing swirls on every single model going down the road.

nice work on your coaches.

pappy, did you re-do your instrument console / dash and if so, what material did you use?

I did not redo my dash, however it looks like it would be easy to do. It is some padded naugahyde looking material.

I painted my 89 Komfort trendsetter 25 with marine acrylic from Sherman Williams using an airless sprayer. Took 4 gallons.

Well maybe I am just bored. but the pin stripe tape I used about 6 years agro started peeling back, and honestly I was never real pleased with the paint job, it was darker then I thought it would be. I have had some delamination, you can see some in the picture. I have started repairing that and sanding and trying to decide what to do in the paint scheme. I really like the old motorhome, the style is somewhat aerodynamic appearing and runs great and is in my garage next to my house very convenient to work on. So we will see and DW is in accord.
