Hey, it’s hard to fight mother nature. It’s a good thing we have an atmosphere around our world that blocks the effects of the sun… well, it slows the effects but sooner or later the UV will win and even an awesome paint job left in the sun will have effects. Here is a perfect example of what your expectations of paint should be.
In the year 2001 what, 15 years ago we had the pleasure of creating a masterpiece for Scott S.. This coach was where we got the angles to create our “reverse raccoon” look Yep, working with a retired engineer has it’s benefits so Scott took over the design and give him the credit, Wow.. nice coach Time marches on and even with the level of attention Scott puts into his coach, UV did it’s worse on his roof so yesterday, Scott pulled in from Baton Rouge for a new doo and yes, this is how Scott keeps his 15 year old paint job. You may have read about this coach on our gallery page. There is was names “nighty fine from behind”. Oh, this is what we were referring to . We had modified the tail lights using a Dodge Van lens assembly. And man, the coach still looks good so now lets get the roof back to the level of finish Scott has grown to expect. Step one is to protect the rest of the vintage paint Now the gus can start in on pulling apart the roof Roof AC’s come off along with all the other vents. The KVH satellite system gave the guys a little trouble having one cremped insert come loose So with the roof stripped removal of the rails and other sealant can begin Backing the patient outside wearing it’s hospital gown we had to tape up it’s bottoms. I mean we wouldn’t want out patient to trip and fall over! Now the DA sanding begins. We have a few lifts to fix but mostly we have dead paint to pull off. We’re also removing the rails and the old rail sealant. The rails will again get painted separately then everything resealed. Stay tuned for more on this project.
