The exact thing happened to my Good friends at Randall Imps., here. When my good friend decided to renew his contract with CASE-IH in 88, he and I drew up plans for a brand new facility on "the main drag", 800'down the road from the new JD facility and seperated by a new State Police headquarters, building. The colors that Bob selected for the wood framed, steel clad building was Tan, with Brown Trim. The colors fit very nicely into the enviroment.
In 1993 as you stated Case-IH wanted their dealers to paint their buildings gray with white trim, and red accents, plus new signage.
As I said in a earlier post, I was gone by then. About 1995 I was a General Contractor and was called to cure some major leakage in the roof and side walls of the building. Due to the applied Gray paint, to the roof and walls, the steel was expanding and contracting with heating from the sun and cooling in the evening and loosened all the screws holding the steel sheeting onto the building. My construction company did the work to seal the "skin" with oversized longer SS gasketed screws, removing the old wiggled loose and broke off roofing screws from the havock the dark paint color placed on the steel. The screws alone from Fasenall were $3 grand.;
Totally needless expense placed on the dealership!!!!!!!! , and it will happen again because of the dark color. No wonder customers complain about high prices for parts and labor! They are paying for expensive Facades, rather than quality service and parts support. Total BS in my opinion.
