Rob,
Can't wait to see the results! Might need to come up when it's done to check it out.

That would be great. We should have it back no later than New Years day.

Streamers,
Here are the latest shots of our 345. Looks to be on schedule for delivery between Christmas and new year.

Streamers,
I'm surprised with the amount of work the guys have done since last week.
I love the new look for the old girl!

AWESOME!!!!! Two thumbs up for those guys!!!

Would you be able to find out what they would charge a typical customer for this? Our coach needs help, and I am leaning toward paint as well. It would help to be able to know what to have to budget for!

Congrats! It is absolutely beautiful.

Susan

Oh - one other question: Can you get a close-up of a line of rivets so we can see how they look after paint?

Thanks
I'm sure they will quote me a generic price range. I will try to get a picture of a rivet line, but with their speed I may have to do that when I get it home!

While I've never been able to come to terms with painting our coach, yours is the second one that I've seen done that way, and they do look great. Ron

Streamers,
We should be going up to get our 345 this Wednesday. The guys sent me some outside pictures today.

Amazingly fast and absolutely beautiful! Please keep us informed on how it wears. I am now leaning even more strongly toward painting our baby...

Thanks!

Susan

Streamers,
We got back with the 345 Wednesday evening. Everything went great. The new paint looks fantastic, and the Porsche tows super.
The new look is really eye catching. The dark gray is a little different from the original, and it SHINES!
The last photo is of some of the rivets.
The price that you should be ready for would be $8000 to $10000, depending on just how much dent work needs to be done.
Well worth the investment to me, as we do not plan on EVER selling this coach.
In just 5 weeks we will be in Daytona for the Rolex 24!!!!!!!!!
Rob
