ZEPPED my Dolphin!

I did 5 coats of ZEP Wet Look Finish to the blue bay doors, Before and after pictures don't do the results justice, looks totally different after ZEP. White gelcoat and graphics will have to wait until another day.

Before


After

I did 6 coats on the sides. 8 coats on the end caps.

Seems to me that the first time I applied an acrylic coating (in that case it was Vertglas), the instructions said that additional coats will enhance the shine, and be more UV resistant. This will reduce the probability of peeling between maintenance coats.

Been working on my 2000 Winnebago Adventurer all weekend. Spent 6 hours with the Barkeepers Friend yesterday then the TSP & Dawn detergent. Ran out of daylight so will be trying to get a few coats of the Zep on there after work today & finish it up tomorrow probably. Also had to do the fiberglass roof with the Camco Rubber Roof cleaner & UV Protectant and it came out very nice. Hopefully the sides come out just as nice but even after the Barkeepers, the walls may be beyond help. The decals certainly are as they are all cracked & shrunk up on the side that the original owner must have stored it exposed to the sun.

Joe-

If you are willing to spend a bit of $, I would guess that your decals are available for replacement. I replaced the "Horizon" decals on my Itasca Horizon, which were peeling off. Go to winnebago parts.com, which is actually a company called Mobility RV. They buy all the leftover decals from Winnebago after each years production run. Give them a call to see what is available.

My decals we less than $20 apiece, but as I recall the stripes are quite a bit more.

Spoke with them in May and was quoted $2500 for a set of replacement decals. Not spending that kind of money for them.

Oh my!!! I was thinking mine were only a few hundred, but then again I didn't really price out a full set because the originals don't look too bad. The good news is the Zep helps make them look better too.

Check back with them, I just got a set of replacements for my Sightseer for under $400. They were having a 50 off special
