Thanks for the comments everyone, I do like the red and think it will go well with everything else but I am a guy? So not sure how much I really can say when it comes to decorating? Jan on the other hand still has that questioning look in her eyes?

So I was telling my wife of the good comments that were made about the red interior, she thought that the comments were great, then I told her that about 150 who people viewed the pictures that didn't comment, now she is worried? I still like it but she reminds me sometimes that I am not always right in my opinions

The most important thing is that YOU both like it. Your the one that will see it and sleep with it. I find myself staring at every little rivet in my Argosy, especially on those rainy days.

IMHO I like the red it is cool, however I know my wife would not allow me to do it. Like most things in these tubes both must agree.

Color change

Thought we would try one more color, it has a calming feeling to it. Let us know what you think.
Thanks Doug and Jan




Well maybe its just the primer for the red
We have to get this covered up as soon as possible!!!

Tostie, We used Conco exterior acrylic enamel.
The first coat of red is back on, the pink is going away. I had the store tint the primer as much as they could which ended up hot pink, good to make that go away as quick as possible.
