Getting my coach painted

Sorry Peeps, it's been a while since I posted last. Been busy with life and work. Anyhow I wanted to share this if there was interest with the group....

I was quoted 30-60k to have my coach painted locally. CDI RV painting popped up in my FB feed. My wife and I were talking about getting this thing painted and I believe the google gods heard the conversation and thus put this company in my FB feed. Long story short, I sent them some pics and they quoted me 16k to do a custom design with 4 colors. They included minor body work and took out some dings and deep scratches. Super stoked about it and we are picking it up in two weeks. They have had it since mid October. I can post pics of the finished product if there is interest. The yellow is just stenciling to cover the blue that will remain as the main color. The place is CDI RV painting and they are located in Forest City Iowa. We drove the bus there after a bus gathering in Oklahoma and drove back with the Jeep we were towing.
