Just completed sanding down the front cap as the PO had a company botch the job. While painting I also did the rear cap and re cleared the back panel. I had new emblems made as originals could not be sourced.
I then used Topside paint on the entire roof. Looks better than new and should help with streaking on the side walls.

How did you attach the emblem? I liked it so much I bought one too. I caulked mine in because it looked like a bear to drill through the front cap and get the screws in the right place. I also thought using screws might crack the plastic unthreaded holes on the back of the emblem.

You did a great job. I did my roof with topside, 2 coats with a roller. It's better than it was. More time was spent masking than painting. Did you spray yours?

I rolled mine with two coats. The emblem of the generator door is original. The emblems I had made are the ones on the front and rear cap. They are a decal with a metallic finish coat at the original thick vinyl emblems were toast.

Vito, I see many post on here from you, I think you are more than capable. Automotive paint is really not my forte. I dont have the patience for all the prep work. Luckily it is 8 off the ground.

Vito, off topic but years back I see that you installed the ugly fix on your isx. Did you keep it on and were you happy with long term results?

Yes. I've installed the Ugly fix in two of our coaches as well as helped others. It's relatively inexpensive but can be a pain to find the wire harness it plugs into. Once you locate the wire harness it's easy. Check out the Cummins section.

Everything you did looks great! Thanks for sharing.

What kind of prep was done to the roof before the refinish? I am feeling like this could become my winter project.

Front and rear cap paint and roof paint

Roof was simple, wash with Dawn dish soap and a soft brush, blow dry with leaf blower, cut in with a brush then roll with a 6 foam roller. Few hours of work.

Did you do any masking?

I used Simply Awesome cleaner and then denatured alcohol to clean. Then I did pretty much the same as you. But first I masked everything; also lifted up the solar panel that had way more dirt under it than the whole rest of roof.
I'm a sloppy painter and maybe overkill on the masking.

The only thing I masked was at the rear cap. With the Girard awnings and the falsies on the roadside no need to mask sides.
