Of course its important that the coach runs but its GOT to look nice too! We specialize in high quality exterior refinishes— “soup to nuts”. An exterior renovation is not only the paint but also all the small details that go along with it. Here is a listing of a few of the specialty pieces & parts we can supply you. We not only supply the part but also what to do with it. Many of the parts have instruction sheets while others I want to personally step you through their installation, set up and use. Give us a call to see the parts we have available, what will fit your coach and you options.
Entry door hinge gasket
Long since gone from availability, through help from our GMC owner/friend supporters, we now have available one awesome small detail finishing touch for your exterior refinish– black trim gasket’s for the hinges on your entry door. $4.50 each your coach will need 4. They have a peel & stick adhesive backing and are split so there is no need of pulling the hinge pin to install– a great finishing touch for your exterior restoration. It’s the small things that make the difference and here is one that qualifies.
Yes, we have made a mold and now Exterior windshield visors are available These fiberglass molded parts are a smart exterior option for many. There are two schools of thought about adding these exterior features but for many, it has been a popular option. Our expert fiberglass vendors do a quality one piece visor that is easy to install and functional. $545 plus crating & shipping in gel coat ready to prep & paint. They are again available, give us a call.
All windshields are not the same nor is their installation. You must be sure you get the best glass available AND have them installed AND sealed properly by someone who is experienced and will back their work with a local warranty. These are the things you need to look for when having windshields replaced. Don’t be fooled—- there is substandard glass out there and even finding the right glass is nothing without having someone experienced to install it. Go to RV Glass Solutions for the low down on professional windshield replacement anywhere.
It’s always a good idea to pull off the heat from the engine compartment. These stainless steel louvered vents cut into the fender just above the front wheel well and works well venting the engine compartment.
Shorter than most vent assemblies you have seen, these cosmetically fit the fender panel and are functional and tasteful.The vents are sold separately and are $18.00 ea. ($36 for the pair). Stainless steel mounting screws and templete are included.
Access door lock twist
The “T” twist latch mechanism invites the thief to access the front hoods as well as the rear compartments. These flush lock assemblies are the devil to open without the special “tool head” key.The lock comes with a new base and spring. They rivet on to both rear side doors and the front hoods. They are sold each for $8, the keys are $3.75 each.
New design wiper arms
After years of putting up with those nasty, funky looking wiper arms with the hoses hanging off, green, bent up useless wiper arms on your coach, we have the answer. Turn yours from this to this . Hard to even see the wiper, isn’t it. The new style wiper arm bolt right onto your old adapter bushing, has the washer hose built into the arm and is angled to cover more of the window and hide away looking like part of the windshield gasket, but probably the greatest feature of this new arm is that replacement refills are a standard part available at most any parts house! The arm goes for $54 per side and the blade and refill is $14 making a pair of them complete only $136. Shoot, I can’t restore an original wiper arm and replace the blades for that! If you do not like them, we will gladly take them back but that hasn’t happened yet so give them a try.
Front hood hold-up kit
OK, what kind of “doodad” do you have holding up the front hoods on your 1973 coach? And for those with later coaches, tired of the hoods falling down on your head when the bulky scissors style original hold up flops over? Well, we have the answer, take that cursed old thing out and put in our new spring hold up kit . The kit replaces the hold ups on both hoods with an easy to use mechanism that locks in the up position and with a light push on the spring, allows the hood to lock down. Most 1973 coaches had no hold up mechanism at all so this kit is a must for those units. The kit hardware uses the original mounting holes so wether you are renovating your coach or simply looking to hold the doors up better, you can install this kit like a professional. The complete kit for both front hoods is $50. shipping is minimal. You will need only hand tools and a 1/8″ rivet gun for installation. Call and ask for the front hood hold up kit.
Stainless Steel Rear Panel screws
If you are refinishing the exterior or just tired of looking at those rusted ugly phillips screws on the rear panel of your coach, dress it up with Stainless Steel rear panel screws. These have the special thread pattern that is needed to bite in the fiberglass. If you are not sure what I mean, pull out one of the rear panel screws and you’ll see what I mean. These screws are a great cosmetic upgrade. They cost $2 each and you will need 25 to replace all on the panel. Actually, the screws across the bottom are machine screws into an aluminum plate– we have the right ones too.
