Just about done the prep. The scafold is Harbor Freight, it is just the right height for this job. With any luck I should be able to paint ot this coming week, if the weather holds.

Pete, Looks like your wife has a handy spot on that deck to keep an eye on you and hand you a beer when you need it.

Pete, a quick question. Your photo #2 shows the piece where the front of the goat rail fits into. Is this just a trim piece? I ask because last time I was on the roof I noticed that at one of the attachment points the plastic has a crack in it. If it's all solid roof underneath these pieces I'm not too worried, but if they are covering openings I'll need to seal the crack to prevent water leaks.
Thanks!

There are no openings under those fairings to leak. My passenger side was cracked by a tree limb quite a while back. I have replacement, but just haven't gotten around to painting it and putting it up. I got the same paint set up on sale at HF not long ago and will finally get that done.

x2 Pete. You have inspired me to do some minor work on my coach. Be prepared for a phone call when I do.
