I just couldn't wait any longer to share just how good our Scamp Bessy looks after her new paint job! She still needs a little more work to be completely done on the outside, but she's seriously come a long way. We spent a total of about five days over the course of two week getting her all prepped and painted. It was crazy hot and a lot of hard work (I think the last two days we worked on her it was well above 100 degrees), so I'm pretty sure we both sweated out at least 1/2 our body weight each day, haha.
When we decided to give her a new paint job we thought it would be really great to do a two tone look keep with her vintage vibe. I mean, she is 40 years old. We thought yellow and white would look great, and truth be told I think it came out even better than we expected! It looks especially snazzy with black windows and lining around the door, which we will continue around the bottom edge. We are also going to get a new Scamp logo printed out in white for the side.
I'm so excited with how the painting came out, because honestly we really weren't sure how it would look having never done it before. We did lots of research trying to figure what the best path would be, and we settled on getting a paint gun to spray on the paint. After a small learning curve the painting job went smoothly. Now that the outside is mostly done we will hopefully have time to continue working on the inside. Honestly, it still needs a lot of work. If all we get to are the floors I would such a happy camper as I think think it would do a ton to make it feel nicer on the inside. We still have to figure out what to do about the wall lining which was marred by dark carpet strips that covered grooves in the tough white foam lining. At the moment everything inside is in great disrepair, but hopefully some caulking and a fresh coat of paint will help.
We cannot wait to get back out on the road with her and get moving to some much cooler weather!
