Gone to be a dog of a different color!
« on: November 04, 2011, 08:56 PM »

What do you think of this?  A deep forest green top and bottom, with a deep burgundy middle stripe.. Might be the same green in middle...

The vote is in.. she will be "jade Mist Green" which is a really dark deep green wherever she has brown now...All other will be cream.  Will get Teal with offset cream decals cut for nose and booty... "Gone to the Dawgs" where "allegro" was previously...  Garry says this marine grade AwlGrip paint will need soap and water only for like 10 yrs...  yes I will now be an indentured web and facebook mistress for Osprey marine Composites as he adds RV's to his now marine only biz...

Paint should be done by next monday! WOW.....  I needed to wash and repaint the roof... but um... may wait on that as no way oxidized roof paint is going to be washed down the sides of a new paint job...   maybe wash and scrub without a hose? hmmmm.

Tina ck with your painter as to how long to wait before waxing As it takes a wile for all the solvents to get out of the fresh paint And the wax will seal them in before completely dry Frank

After the fresh paint has set. (able to take masking tape without pulling off) You can mask the whole rig with waterproof masking tape and plastic sheeting so you can hose wash the roof Be careful of high pressure on the tape edges and make shure tape is firmly sealed use only chemicals that wont hurt the paint if they do get on it & be careful of hose rubbing on edges  Frank

Looks awesome, Tina!

When we were parked in a wide open parking lot for 3 days in NY during and after Hurricane Irene, I thought it would be a great idea to recoat my roof while I was out in the sun and no leaves and whatnot could fall on the wet roof coating.  But we had no water source to clean the roof with.  So I went with a lot of rags, and a gallon of denatured alchohol...worked like a champ, cleaned it as well as TSP, and while it took a lot of rags and elbow grease, the roof coating took to the roof beautifully.  And because its a water free way to do it, no drips down the sides and whatnot.  Just pour it on the rag, and scrub away.  When the residue evaporates, the roof is dry and ready to paint.  Just be carefull near the edges...don't saturate the rags used at the edges so the alcohol won't drip on your paint.  And wear rubber gloves!

contemplating rags and purple power since lots of sap etc... winterized her today for water lines and removed supplies... (I was sad)... was beautiful but had too many other priorities to tackle her... may just tarp her up and redo the roof in the spring depending on weather...

I like it very much Tina, wold love to repaint our Georgie Boy someday (I do bodywork/paint), but ours has 5 different colors of striping in 11 different widths!!! Just the thought of the hours it would take to heatgun all of them off is enough to make it's current paint look much better. lol
Seriously though, any more photos yet? Looking forward to seeing the finished job!

I hear ya, Lefty!  Our paint is good, but a lot of the multi-colored multi-layered pinstriping is shabby.  We did get a quote from a place in AZ that does custom rig painting and pinstriping...2200 bucks to redo all the stripes...original or custom...with free camping for the 3 weeks it would take.  Might take them up on it someday.
