Can somebody tell me the sequence the paint job is done in the manufacturing process?

The reason I ask is that while waxing the coach, for the first time I've noticed a small bit of overspray on the molding on every window. I just assumed that the body would be painted before the windows were put in. It got me wondering if this coach had some major damage and was repainted before I took possession. I bought the coach new.

Thanks.

Like the song said, "Don't worry - be happy!"

Painting is done last...

All full-body paint jobs go to CDI around the corner from the Winnie campus after the coach is assembled. CDI paints the coach and then adds the awnings.

I read (somewhere) that Winnebago has bought CDI.
Have you or anyone else heard that also?
