Building a Motorhome - Day 9
On day 9 we finally got an idea of what our finished paint scheme would look like.
When we arrived at the painting facility, the coach still had all of the masking that it had accumulated going through the striping process.
During the morning, as workers pulled off more and more of the masking, our paint scheme started to emerge.
As they were removing masking, they were also carefully inspecting the paint for areas that needed touch-up. The areas surrounding the touch-up areas were masked as they worked. The coach was then moved into another paint booth where those touch-up areas were resprayed.
After the touch-up booth, the remaining masking was removed. At this point we really has a good view of our paint scheme.
At this point, the paint is pretty flat looking. The next step involved spraying on the first two coats of clear coat.
At the end of the clear coating, the coach would move into a drying oven for about an hour. Since it was near the end of the work day, we snapped a few images through the booth windows and left for the day.
