Piker, i like the grey stripe's better than the teal and purple! Looks great! I think you could do the other side to match, and continue around the front and back, to tie it all together, and Wow!

I am thinking doing mine too, as the old stripes are looking pretty sad too, and changing the colors too, to match my new to me toad! We will see? Rail!

Really glad to see this project. We are going to stay with our original vinyl graphics for now but this was a great example for the wife to show the slightest change can really make a difference. Looks great, thanks for sharing.

Piker,
Really helps set the driver's side off and looks great.

WOW - style and panache!! I particularly like the graphic design you applied. Looks like it was a family project. You have to be pleased with the result.

I really like it. That will do nicely for now. So, when are you going camping?

Piker,

I just went back to post #6 in this thread. There you have a photo of the driver's side and rear of the coach in its original accent colors. Then I compared it to the new version you just completed. Wow! A simple change of colors in the colors made quite a good difference at the same time you took care of the corrosion (at least on the surface). Nice work, sir.

This looks good from 30/0. That is 30' feet from a stationary (0 mph) camera.

I also would not be a bit concerned about the "stripe" on the driver's side not continuing on the front or back of the rig. The solid grey at the bottom of the coach ties it all together quite well. At least, that is my opinion.

Now, when is the next camping trip?

Thanks guys... always good to hear some encouraging words.

I think for now we're good on aesthetics for a while. I changed the oil and greased the chassis last night in preparation for hitting the road in about a month. I've been hammering out 70+ hour weeks at work for a while now, so we're going to take a few extra days to get to Tucson...

Looking forward to some down time.

-cheers

That translates to about: 62 mph at 328 feet. That should do it.

Made it...

Well, the old bus made it back out here to Tucson again. The Cummins ran good the whole way, and there were no major issues. The fridge gave us a few problems because some of the interior wallpaper on the paneling behind the fridge delaminated and fell over top of the cooling fins. I didn't get that figured out until we got here, but it's good to know the fridge works pretty good in 115į heat with proper air flow over the back of the cooling unit. The only other issue was that the road into White Sands National Monument was so rough that it shook us to death and ended up busting the exhaust on the generator. I put some tie-wire and high heat JB weld on it for a temporary fix, and it got us here. Hopefully it holds long enough to get us home.

Just a few pics below of our campsite and a few of the things we've seen:

-cheers

Piker, I'm glad to see you enjoying yourself. Your journey has been an inspiration to me. I am at the beginning of a major repair and renovation of my own Holiday Rambler, and I hope to do as well as you have.
