    Getting the Coach Painted

    That's one pretty looking coach, Gary. They sure did a great job. I'll bet you sure missed it while it was in the shop, so get out & start enjoying it.

    Bill, the decal is on the left rear of the coach right where the original CAT Power decal was.

    Getting the Coach Painted

    I just dropped off my 02 Horizon 39QD in a paint shop in MI just north of Elkhart, IN...3 colors and your own design for 250.00 a foot using Dupont paint with 3 coats of clear...One of the colors I chose was Harley Davidson black metallic at 570.00 a gallon and the price to paint the coach is $10,000...The shop has a good reputation with plenty of references...About 3 to 4 weeks to complete..I too have the same small cracks in the Filon as Gary..Can't wait to get it back..

    Yes, estimated time frame was 4 weeks. I think it will be 5 weeks at this point. That was consistent with 2 other shops who provided estimates.

    Gary, Assuming they do a good job (and I know they will) you will be very happy with your new paint job vs. a new coach. $11-12K is a lot cheaper investment than $100K+ for the new coach (not to mention those new messy 2010 EPA regs....).

    I spoke with the owners of the 2001 Journey who just had theirs done in full body paint in the body shop behind me. They were very happy with their decision, and the paint job turned out excellent.

    Keep us posted.

    Man...you got a deal, price wise I mean. I owned a body shop in another lifetime and I don't see any way I could have come close to the $11,000. I think you made a wise decision getting it painted closer to home if for no other reason if you should have any warranty issues. Looking forward to seeing the progress. Thanks for sharing.
