Paint/Decals

My 2002 Adventurer decals are showing their age. Does anyone have solution(s) to remove and/or replace decals? Once decals are removed, is it better to replace decals or paint? Can you use a heat gun to remove decals? Successfully?
Ideas would be great fully appreciated.
Thanks.

I've moved your post from the Technology forum to here where you should get more relevant views.

decal removal

the "ITASCA" letters on my sunrise were curling at the edges so I removed them with a heat gun you don't need a lot of heat just warm them up and they peel off. I didn't replace them. the larger swirls were still in good shape.Put a coat of wax where the letters were and called it good.

On my TT, when the decals started to peel from too much exposure to the Texas sun I used a blow dryer to heat them up and peel them off. They came up cleanly. The only problem was that the fiberglass had faded, so you could always see the unfaded outline where the decals had been.

IDK how they did it, but I had a paint shop remove some of mine that were custom (non factory) and paint them on with chromolusion (color changing paint) ..... I would not recomend this to anyone wanting to save a dime, the paint shop did not realize how much labor was involved in the chromolusion paint, but they stuck to the original quote. Said it should of cost dubble

I knew a man years ago said he used egg to remove the peeling decals from his Bounder

I did tho find this for you, I hope it helps you out
