Well, a decision of sorts has been made. I bought a roll of great looking striping tape 3" wide ( the same as the woodgrain section). The woodgrain now has a black background with a few silver pin stripes around the wood.

I bought a black and silver alternating stripe, with a two toned red center stripe. I think it will look great, but I am holding judgement until the roll gets here. The guy has a lot of 150' rolls available in different colors if anyone needs some. PM me for his email address.
My rig has the black body moldings around it, and the black stripe across the top, so I think it will all come together nicely.


While I was waiting, I repainted my spare tire mount, using the dupont metallic grey to match the bottom of the motorhome, it had been done originally but was dirty and scratched. I intend to repaint the lower grey of the motorhome soon as well.

Killer, dude!
Now you can park next to me at the next rally.
And if you have an icemaker, I don't even have to scratch on Fred's door.
Really turned out nice, Alan!

THEY SAY OVER HERE " YOU'VE EARNED YOUR STRIPES".
I wish the "go faster" was "get better mileage"!
This has been a fun project.
