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.
