The building to the left is my son in laws shop i could pull the winnie inside use his compressed air and professional spray guns But moving the rig i am living in takes 1/2 hr to batten everything down and then have to relevel it after moving again is a pain the reason i am using rattle cans is strictly cost it  is less than 1/2 the price of automotive paint  What takes the time is doing the body work and removing and reinstalling parts It took 8 hrs to remove rear bumper ,ladder & spare tire carrier Then another 8 hrs to clea sand a repaint them and another 8 hrs to reinstall 2 days to do body work and 1 day to paint thats just the rear panel and i amusing air tools ossilating sanders etc if the total time is 4 weeks il figure it was faster than i thought it would be  now the l/s i have to replace the wood filler in the main panel its all mush  Frank

You're making good progress Frank. Thanks for allowing us to follow along. This really helps other GORVers who are considering something similar.

Hate to pass this on After ya ratle canned but for $49 air compressor and $19 spray gun from horbor freight ya could have knocked it out in 3 days. just an idea.

It is very hard to do such large panels esp in the bright sunlight the cans do not put out a lot of spray and it is very thin Runs easily and takes 4 5 coats to cover Took 7 cans to do rear panel and 21 to do right side wich has some dry spots that will need redone after cured 7 days By the time i get to the left side i will have a pretty good idea of what im doing But whatever its all white with the orange and yellow stripes gone  Checking on decals on E Bay there are quite a few !
