Just for LEGAL reasons get a document (in writing) from the painter that they are going to remove the gel coat down to the fiberglass and you can always pick a spot on the bottom of the cap to verify they did.

When you remove the gel coat do you lose that nice smooth finish to where you would see the fibers?

got the eagle back

got the eagle back last Friday!! it looks fantastic, painter did a great job and I really like the lighter color. it looks like a completely different trailer. thanks to mustang65 for all the info on light vs dark cap, that helped me determine which color to have ours painted. I would post a picture but this site does not seem to be to cooperative at the moment for that.

I was approved for and planned on changing the color on our fading cap as well. However, the shop that did mine strongly advised against it. Claimed the cap was brown throughout, and therefore any chip or scratch would show through the top coat of paint. Opted not to change colors but I do agree they look way better with the lighter nose cap.

Mustang65,
Maybe the shop (not a Jayco dealer) just didn't want to mess with all the work required to change the color. Never the less, I went ahead and had the repair work completed last fall and am pleased with the finished job.
