Hi Chris
There is a Finishmasters in Ft Myers and you might want to go by and talk to the sales person and ask them to come by with their color match camera and shoot each color. Those cameras work really well in my experience and that compensates for age fade. You could also drive your coach by their shop and they could shoot it. I use a disposable Preval spray bottle so you can mix the hardner in and then spray the clearcoat.
I have also had very good results at Lowe’s for interior paints. Their paint cameras have been very accurate. They also have a sample jar (4-5 oz) for $3-$4. They need about 2-3 sq in sample to shoot.
Good luck
Dan

Thanks, can do. I have about 6 chips and a couple of peeling spots. Plan is to repaint, but put the money we had into the bus so its good to go. So I will try to touch up and go from there.

Took the stockade fence down and started installing the 16 foot roiling gate for the new driveway for the coach. Concrete guy is coming today to lay out the new slabs (after a dump truck full of dirt shows up). Inspection Friday and we pour concrete beginning of next week. Should have the new culvert. driveway and garage slab done in 10 days.

A little trick I did on my slab is leave the front form out about 10 feet right in the canter and have the truck back all the way to the back of your slab. Then pull forward a little and start pouring. It will give you a few more inches of slab under your bus wheels and I can guarantee you the dirt will be compacted where it counts. When he gets past the end of your slab, slap the form board back in and finish the pour.

Thanks Clem,

My concrete guy has an engineer in his pocket and so far I like what he is doing. I'm not up to pouring this big of a slab. It's the garage slab, the driveway slab and the culvert slab. I had another engineer who was telling me like a 20 inch thick slab and that is when I found this guy. 6 inch with footers, 5000 psi concrete. lots of rebar and lots of rebar under the wheel tracks and under the jacks. They are digging down about a foot and compacting gravel . I know a few WOG folks told me to do that and here we are. Waiting on the dump truck now. Then once all that is done, I can get the steel building folks in later this month or early next. I maxed out their size so I have a 45 by 18 garage 16 feet high. The garage door is about 12 wide by 14 high. The concrete crew is going to start in earnest next week.

Best I can do. Bus will fit. Just no room fore and aft. I'm on a half acre lot. This is the end of my back yard, at least 2/3 of it. But we (wife wants storage room lol) want this so on we go. Backhoe is on the way to take up an old stump and the fill dirt tomorrow PM. FDOT inspection for the culvert Friday and we roll. Pics pending.

Default Enjoyed It!

It’s been tough suffering through these kind of “crammed in” camp sites all summer!
