Love your paint job and the unpainted trim sets it off nicely!
Wow are you traveling long distance towing with the Rover, hardcore if the case :-)
Hope you saved a little paint of each color for touch ups. Sure does look good.

Cheers Richard

Sergei, didn't win the lottery last night. Bought a ticket for Saturday. Wish me luck! I'll have that setup of yours if I win!

PS: How much to deliver it? I'll pay for the plane ticket back.

For you Paula, delivery is included.

If you prefer the UTILITY BOX over the MINI I will supervise your design through to build out for FREE as well.

Two options, same price: Beautiful rig with Matching Utility body. Lovely rig with original MINI. Take your choice.

GOOD LUCK. Here's hoping for you!

Peter, it looks fabulous! I can hardly believe that you used ordinary, off-the-shelf paints for this. And rolled it on! Amazing! Carry on the good work!

How many gallons of paint did you need for the top?

Sorry for the slow reply, I'm not here often.

I had 3 quarts mixed up and really, I would have liked a little more.
The roller was running a little dry on my last coat which made for a little more texture.
A gallon would be plenty. 24' coach.



Thanks all for the kind words, the coach gets lots of compliments,...

Peter

Looks good. What did you use to strip your paint I'm getting ready to start on a Argosy 24 & may try to polish it. I know regular stripper will cloud the aluminum. Any help would be appreciated.

Classy, I dig it! Especially with keeping the trim pieces shiny, it's a nice touch.

If that's your TV, then why not find another set of tail lights that match the TV's to continue the theme?

I dig the trailer but I really dig the rover. Together they look great. Who says you need a shiny aluminum trailer? Not me.

Thanks all,

Sadly the coach is for sale, incomplete as it is.

I'll stick around, I'll have another one as soon as possible.

If this post is inappropriate, moderators please delete and accept my apology.

Cheers
