Can you tell that school is over? We have time to catch up on all of the progress! As you can see that most of these RV projects were done at night at the Car Finder shop. Mainly because Madison and I are at school and work all during the day, and the only time we can get there is after dark.
Anyways, after we prepped the RV we were ready to roll with the paint.
I went and got a few colors of of single-stage automotive paint mixed up. It took us a while to decide on the colors. But we finally decided to try go with a “pendleton blanket” feel… so we went with grey and red. We were a little nervous that painting those big fiberglass walls that it would come out looking like a rolling rain cloud. But, it turned out pretty nice!

To be totally honest, I had no idea what I was doing. We were just going for it. Tanner has the most experience painting, but we all still felt like we were just winging it. I mean, how hard could it be, right? Just point the thing and shoot!
Tanner getting a little creative on the hood… yikes.
So it looks like that was all done in one night… but that was unfortunately not the case. We kept running into problems. We would get everything taped up and ready to roll… and then something would go wrong and we would have to bail on the project for the night. One night we thought we were going to get it all done – everything was set and ready. And then, the compressor motor went out! Such terrible timing! So frustrating. But hey, we got it eventually!
That hood is KILLER, no? Nice work Tanner!
We did it! We got the base coat on there! It looks a little goofy with how the cab was so different from the coach. Stay tuned for the pattern – it will tie it all in, I promise!
