#M Film Removal, Painting Front of Bus
Here is a recommendation for a good paint contractor. Last week the bus went to a recommended vendor to remove the cracked and ugly 3M film and repaint. The work they did was excellent, and their price was about half quoted process at the majors. Although the price is affected by the number of colors and complexity of design, removal and painting runs around $1,700. What a difference in the look of the bus. Well worth it.

RV Clearcoat has been around a long time. Jake Pilcher and his son Greg run the business and both have a lot of experience. RV Clear Coat used to do the paint work for Lazy Days until Lazy Days fell upon hard times and brought it all in house. While our bus was being worked on I observed a number of other brands having paint work done.

RV Clear Coat Paint & Body is on the east side of Tampa, very near the intersection of I-4 and I-75. 813-626-4487. I encouraged Greg to join the forum as a vendor, and if he has, perhaps he will provide more information.

Anyway, they have my recommendation. By the way, I have no iron in the fire here.

From start to finish how long did it take them?

I would like to know this also, and HOW they did it.

It took a day and a half to strip it, and they scheduled three days total. They had a young guy who really knew what he was doing. He had the technique doing what was previously discussed here on the forum, wallpaper steamer and plastic razor blades. They used some sort of citrus solvent to remove the adhesive. I think it was worth it to have him remove the stuff.

The kids and I ran into Ron out at Parliament today and I must say the front of his coach looks like new:)
