    Full Body Paint - Questions on process

    I am likely ordering a Momentum (351M) with Full Body Paint. I have a couple of questions on the FBP process:
    1. Are all side/rear markers, door locks/handles & slam latches removed prior to painting? These are all replaceable pieces... and want to know if I were to replace something will a different brand, etc that may have a slightly different shape - will there be white showing?
    2. At what point does the caulking get applied to the exterior of the RV (before paint and therefore is painted over... or after paint).



    Thanks!

    1. No. The unit travels a few mes to the paint shop where they tape over the handles.
    2. Sealant is put on after paint along with awnings and other attachments.

    OK so I understand... if I were to replace the main door lock with the RVLock v4.0 Keyless lock... I am going to have unpainted/white ring around the new lock since it isn't the same shape as the old?

    RVLock includes a gasket for full body paint applications, or rather, the gasket has to be ordered. https://www.rvlock.com/collections/a...roducts/gasket

    Yes. As stated above, you can get a black gasket.
