I went up to the RV today to clean up after the mice, add peanut butter to the mouse traps and to drive the RV and fire up the generator and furnace so everything could get a work out and so I could see how things are holding up. The engine started no problem, the house batteries were below 50% which I expected. I then primed the genny and it started with no problem at all which was excellent. I took the rig on a 24 mile ride and had to actually take my coat off it got so warm inside!
I then parked it and also took a closer look at the paint work performed by the body shop and I noticed that the gold stripe isn’t even, either is the blue stripe. How did I miss this when I picked it up?? The bottom picture is the before, granted the previous body shop only clear coated over the gold and blue stripes, at least they were even.
Now, the stripes are new, they are painted BUT they are uneven. The previous shop owner called me a perfectionist, all I asked for is the job to be done correctly. So now I ask you, blogging world, open this picture, the before is the bottom and the after is the top, is the unevenness of the stripes acceptable? When you click the picture it will open as a larger picture, you can increase the size in IE by clicking the bottom right hand corner until it says 150%, that will show the differences much better. I sent the body shop an email about the leak and the stripes so we’ll see what they say.
I guess I can’t complain but this just seems to be the theme with this thing and I’m a bit disappointed considering the reputation of the body shop that did the work and I’m disappointed in myself for not catching this to begin with. From a distance it looks great, maybe I should just be happy with that…
