Hey guys. Thanks so much for the compliments! Some of them had me laughing pretty good.... for the record, I don't think anyone could pay me enough to do this again lol...
I have been super busy with work, and that's the reason I haven't been back lately. So busy that we have decided to cancel the trip in November that we had planned with the camper. No big deal, as we will get to vacation with it soon enough. I did however have a chance to finish painting
it today. By the time I was done, it was so dark that I couldn't take pictures. I will take some tomorrow and post them.
To be honest, this is the first time I have ever painted something of this size before. I just took my time and made sure that everything was prepared right. I went through two jitterbugs, countless boxes of sand paper, 4 block sanders, gallons of denatured alcohol, buckets full of rags and a tub of rubbing compound. My father taught me most of what I know and YouTube/internet is also a wealth of information. Patience is key.
The way I got such good results with the paint was 1. To make sure it was prepped very well. Probably 95% of painting
is prepping. 2. I practiced on the door and got everything dialed in before moving on to the camper. Not going to lie, I ended up painting
the door five times before I was satisfied with the end result. I then used all those same techniques on the camper shell. I then put one final coat on the door when I was painting the shell to make sure the colors matched perfectly.
The reason the garage is so full is because of all the parts and pieces of the camper are inside there. It's my motivation to finish this thing. Get all this stuff out of my garage here soon because I have another project that is due to come back into the garage once it gets a little further along.
I can't wait to no longer have anymore projects, but somehow that never seems to happen...
