Well it looks like one more day till I call out the lawyers, guns and money…. stay tuned….
Today I wanted to talk a little about what it takes to break down a coach for paint. The production places turn loose a minimum wage “taper” trained to tape and bag off everything on the exterior that’s not supposed to see paint… grill… headlight baskets…. tail and clearance lights heck, they even bag off the old body side molding! It’s faster asnd thus cheaper to tape stuff off than to remove it.
Here is Cal’s 78 coach as we take it apart for paint For some reason my computer is moving like a pack of stampeding turtles, I’ll try may best to get this out before the day hits…. lets try
Above, the top rail is off… only broke 2 screws. We’ll grind those 2 flush to the aluminum, dimple the steel screw and drill then retap them and we’ll be ready with that rail. The scaffolds allow The grill bout fell out, the headlight baskets out we can restore those before they go back in. We’ll remove the front bumper and insert to paint the bumper. The rear panel screws are out… a big ?… and today his awning comes off and the roof gets gone. We should be ready for body and DA sanding next… stay tuned…
Gotta go… see ya tomorrow….
