ESTERO, Fla. -- Preparations are underway for the new paint job at Hertz Arena in Estero.

Wednesday, crews were applying primer.

The new design has significantly less yellow than the original plans , which called for the entire building to be painted bright yellow. Now only about 14 percent of the building will actually be yellow .

It'll take about six weeks to finish painting.

Putting up the new lettering will take a little longer.

The work will not affect any hockey games or concerts.

The Hertz rental car company took over naming rights of the arena this summer , changing the name from Germain Arena.
