Since we are having some bad storms on the Eastern Shore right now, I decided to take the time to post some pics of the our "New" Bus!
Curb Side View

Rear and Street Side View
Street Side w/ Slides Out
Set Up
We literally picked it up on Thursday night, drove it to the house, packed it, took it the storage lot and then pulled out Friday afternoon for our vacation. There are some last minute details that did not get completed but we will be taking it back to Barnes next month. It looks really good and the sides are so smooth! No more decals!

Really nice, I like your choice to stay close to the origional scheme. A lot of paint jobs now make you dizzy looking at them.
I downloaded your pics. I hope someday maybe I can upgrade to FBP.

Barne's Collision is in Zebulon NC. Small town east of Raleigh.
He did a great job and we are very glad we chose to do this instead of trying to trade. (Ugh)

This is a blanket response to all who have asked about our cost to have this done.
We wanted to confer with Barne's before we responded.
It is all going to depend on several factors.
1. Length of coach
2. Color scheme chosen
3. Condition of siding depending on amount of sanding that will need to be done.
4. And final buffing that will need to be done.
We elected not to paint the inside of the slides as they were in good condition. He did put a stripe to match but the original paint on the insides remained the same. (A moot point to us.)
We did not elect for a complete redesign, ie, changing all colors, because we liked having the white paint on top and we liked the color on the bottom. We are simple folks so simple striping was our choice which we feel helped keep the cost down.
So when all was said and done, it cost us a little under 11k. Still cheaper than trading.
He did a great job and has a good bunch of guys working for him. Good, honest hard working guys.
I can't say enough good things about them.
