Bringing back the shine

Have read several articles about the best way to bring the shine back to the fiberglass on my 03' Winne. The one thing they have in common is to start with an "even" looking surface. Am the second owner of my unit and it appears that the first owner had a decal approx. 24" x 36" on each side. Where the decals were did not oxidize the same as the rest of the exterior so I have a glossy area at those spots. Any ideas as to how to dull these areas ?

I just recently had our decals re-done, before hand, I removed the old ones and used an oxidation remover similar to that you would use for a marine application...I would suggest washing your unit with a soap that doesn"t contain wax, then use an oxidation remover and polish the the entire fibreglass exterior the same way, If your results are like mine, you should find that your areas with less oxidation should be less noticeable because everything else will shine almost like new again...be sure to apply a good wax when you are finnished to protect your work. I am unaware of any method of speeding up the oxidation prosess of the "ghosted" areas to allow it to match the rest of the finnish. Check out vegas dan on the National Manufacturer forum called "Tradewinds renovation" he has a pictorial of an exterior restoration similar to what I have done on mine, he had great results as well

Why not remove the oxidation from those areas instead of wanting the other areas to look oxidized and not shiny?
It would be better to remove the oxidation from those areas instead. Or, am I missing something?
