OMG, we got it back! So excited! It looks so good, all shiny and new. I love it one colour and I love the colour. It’s bright in the sun and much darker and more olive-y in the shade.
The body shop guy was solicitous, going over and pointing out all the flaws in their paint job, especially the ones they couldn’t help. We kept telling him, we don’t have a Mustang here, and we certainly didn’t pay for a Mustang finish. It was a fabulous job, and we got it for a budget price, no question.
Another thing about painting fiberglass- it has some weird property that it can have micro cracks that only show up when it’s painted. They were minor, of course. Our giant side patch turned out so well. I was so proud. It’s the largest smooth spot on the trailer now, and it’s so close to perfect. At just the right angle with the right light the outline of the former holes are visible. But who cares!
We spent the drive home thinking up names for it and also catching glimpses of it in the mirror and having a jolting moment of “What’s behind us?!”
I’m a big fan of the Aphid. It’s exactly aphid colour. But it’s totally an Ameracauna Egg! It’s a fiberglass egg – a green one. Hahaha!
