Ron P.  2004 Monaco Executive 

Question:

Have anyone used Narraro to paint their coach?

 

What was your experience?

Ron:

Joe B had his Executive painted at Navarro Brothers and it's a spectacular paint job, just beautiful and perfect.  Hopefully he'll see your message and comment, but I've seen the paint job and it's incredible.

Our 2001 Dip. Is at there shop right now. 2 colors are on & 2 more to go. The work is absolutely wonderful.  To explain the in's and out of the whole process is difficult to explain in writing. If you would like to talk let make arrangements for that.

There is a member whose coach is at their shop, or should have just come out. I reached out the other day and haven’t heard back. 

Was that us? If it was I didn't get the message.

Yeah I thought I sent a message, but who knows, I’m all over the place. 
 

You should post what you have so far and what it looks like. I’m dying to know LOL!

Per JD's request here is what I have so far.  

Yes, as you can tell by the pictures so far we got a little on the fancy side, but if you ever see us on the road you will know we're part of the group.  😊

So let me start here, we choose to completely take everything out. Easier to look though the coach at inspection time. Taking guns and or ammo is strictly forbidden. (We didn't want to accidentally leave a bullet laying around) don't think that you can talk your way out of it!

Right after we crossed over into Mexico we were pulled over to the curb.  We had 4 federales checking the cargo bays & 3 going through the inside looking in every cupboards. After a few minutes they invited the dog in to sniff out any contraband. You would think that we were smuggling some of illegals & drugs back into there country, and they would not  want that to happen.  Then they try to have a nice conversation with you & they can't speak English & we don't speak Spanish. That was fun. 

Next was the drive to the shop. Wires all over the place. We're 12ft tall. Wires were scraping the ac & vents. We made a stick to lift Wires if we needed it.  I  had my wife walking in front just incase. Only had 1 wire snag for a moment. That one shook me a little but all in all we made it to the shop with out any major mishap. 

We spent 4 hours picking out colors & some repairs that needed to be done.  Then they drove us back over the border to get our jeep to go home.  You park your get back home car on the American side. $6 for the day. 

Word of warning don't for get your passports & drivers licenses. Also get some Mexico insurance for driving in Mexico. Even though it's only about a mile to the shop, get it. We paid $27 for the day. If something were to happen regardless of fault you will glad you had it. 

Not only the paint job they are also going to replace our headliner. 

You have to remember your dealing with a different culture. You send an email to see how things are going you probably won't get a reply until they actually have something to show you. These pictures are the first reply we got so just be patient and rest assured they are working on it & doing a great job.  I'm more worried about the headliner than I am the paint. 

Before going down we tracked 4 people down who had there coaches done there. Any were from 4 weeks to 5 years ago. Every one said that it was an adventure but would not hesitate to do it again. 

4 colors white was done first. Black was the 2ed color. Each time the whole coach has to be re-mask just for that paint. Then 3 coats of clear. We belive that we are pushing the limits for graphics with our job. 

OK with that said here are the pictures so far. 

PS. They work on a cash basis. So just get used to the idea, if you choose to do it call me and I will explain how to do it so you won't get into trouble with there government.

It's starting to get very exciting!  I talked to the guy who did the taping for the Eagle. He said,  the eagle.     Aye Aye Aye lot of work.

I changed my account from Bob Schmeck to Bob Schmeckpeper  to fix the problem that I was having.  Probably that's why I didn't get it.

Looks like they are off to a great start.  What is the time estimate for completion?  When they inspected your rv what type of repairs had to be made.  I know.one of.my basement doors hinge is starting to pull away from frame.

I am interested in getting my RV done. I had an appointmemt for Mike Williams in IN and had to cancel because of COVID.  I tried to reschedule and the price went from 15000 pre COVID to 22000 post COVID.

Some time in the 1st two weeks of April. 

It would have been the 1st of April but that was before I added the headliner. 

All my cargo door screws were breaking off, & little defamation in the driver rear. Also there was an impact from the previous owner in the rear cap the needed some work.  I  really don't want to post the price because things can change. Call me and I can fill you in a little better.

Thanks for the information.   I am planning to be in San Diego 28 May-5 Jun.  I was going to visit their shop and make arrangements for September-October time-frame. 

I wasn’t planning to take coach(2004 Monaco Executive) into Mexico in June but drive over.  Good idea or not?

I sent them pictures and he quoted $14-15k.

I am located in Wilmington Delaware.   Where are you located?

I have other questions but I'll wait until closer to getting the job done.

We are in Gilbert Arizona.  

That's about right for the price. They close down for the month of August to find cooler places.

If you want them to see it in person you can park at the casino and they will come over. But I  found it wasn't really necessary.
