Has ANYBODY that's painted their RV or boat with boat paint had problems with painting over existing decals?

I'll scruff them with 220 after having edged them with glazing putty and faired them out with block sanding....but do I REALLY need to prime the surface before roll/tipping the final coating?

Let me know what you know from your own experience

Can you widen those stripes to make them more pronounced? Seems a little under-stated compared with the original, and with just looking at it.

I think it looks pretty darn good myself.

Not too much but yet enough contrast that you got it looking pretty darn good.

Well done.

Looks good, Chuck. What paint did you choose, and how long between coats of color and coats of clear? any sanding between coats?

Paint Projects all done for now, was going to re-finish my rear grille- Rain again in the afternoon, will do later. Next project is re-finishing my sidewalls at my Friends Paint shop next week in Brainerd MN, now He's the Painter for sure, I'll post the job on here.
So to summarize the last 2 weeks:
1) I refinished the Roof Cap- Clear was Peeling all over- from the Sun I guess.
2) Re-finished my steps with Rubberized Undercoating.
3) Re-finished my Front Grille
4) Re-finished the Electrical Compartment Door- had some dings and heavy scratches-

That is the best way to make things last.
I have always said, take care of your woman and your woman will take care of you. Of course, I say that about my Harley too

Nice job. Its always nice to look back and see your accomplishments. A good feeling for sure
