New Graphics - 2003 Dolphin L/X

After reading all the post about people removing their own graphics I decided to have mine done professionally. The driver's side of my motorhome faces the Sun and it has taken a beating throughout the years. I've even had a cover on it some of the time. The fiberglass on the driver's side was almost impossible to get looking good. The place I took it to removed the old graphics, machine buffed and waxed the exterior and then put on new graphics. When removing the old graphics, a shadow is left on the fiberglass so they used the same pattern. The motor home looks like new again. Here are some before and after photos.

Wow that looks really good, still working on getting mine off myself. Weather hasn't been cooperating here in Colorado. Can I asked what the new graphics cost? We were given a quote of $2800 just to put the new graphics on.

Looks GREAT! Like New!

The MH we just bought a few months ago, the previous owner had the old decals removed and painted new one on.

The coach looks great Congrats

I am having mine professionally waxed this weekend.

They said they will do it in "two steps"

1. Compound

2. Wax

I have a 2002 Dolphin with the 5355 floorplan.

I live on Long Island, I don't have anyone around here to do my decals.

Congrats again
