Default Body Paint Repair

Sean fixed my Owie!

Sean Dixon fixed a small dent & paint scrape on the rear driver side corner.
Good as new, paint matched perfectly and clear coat.
I still need to install the small door & frame, It was riveted and screwed.
Will find a simpler way to install and make easier to remove.
Track him down for body repairs, excellent results. Check out the mini paint booth.
The last image is a picture shading & light issue.
I'm Happy again

Awesome work!

Has anyone added a hatch/compartment to their coach? Just thinking that we use to do that with offroad trucks and it is normally the painting that keeps me from considering getting the nibbler out. I was thinking of adding the 95' style waste hose storage in the void under the fuel/LPG fill on my 94' WB.

We also had Sean do a repair on our LXI while in Bainbridge. Flawless work without the trouble, travel, and expense of taking it to a RV shop. Before and after shown below.

Default Sewer Hose Door

Bruce, our 95 had the sewer hose storage door, but the ABS tube mounted behind it was worthless. I removed the tube and access panel where the tube was mounted and added a stainless large spaced mesh in there giving me a perfect well ventilated area to store three lengths of sewer hose and connections.

I’m waiting to get my coach in the back yard to go over it. I have a shore power (powered) cord reel I like to put in the left rear. Near the power port. Nothing there now but the fan. Some room on the side, just don’t know what’s behind it yet. I’m going to have to do some painting (got a lot of advice at the WOG) and a few phone numbers to call for advice. I have all the gear to spray paint (and do the metal work). #100 on the list lol.
