Removing Invisishield off Front of Coach

I know I have read on previous posts about how to remove the vinyl protective coating off the front of the coach. Mine has gotten rather messed up, so want to remove it. I would appreciate any advice.

Take your time using heat and use plastic razor blades available from Amazon or Walmart maybe.

This company sells products or will do the job for you if you go to Fort Myers. The process is very labor intensive, so it isn't cheap. They also have a series of videos that are very helpful for the do it yourselfers. I've talked to the owner when we were considering buying a used motorhome that needed the front shield removed and would have had them do it but we decided against buying that motorhome.

I used a fabric steamer from Bed Bath and Beyond and plastic razor blades for the film. Then Xylene to remove the glue. Tough job but I am too frugal to pay someone else...

I feel the same way. Hate to pay someone else to do something I can do, especially when it is just labor involved.

I concur on this. Wayne has some very detailed videos you can watch. If you have a question just give him a call. Just do a google search on YouTube for ugly shield removal. He talks about both Diamond Shield and 3M.

A friend on mine used a pressure washer to remove the plastic shield on his 2012 Georgetown. The results looked great with no paint damage. He used a solvent like mineral sports to remove the remaining glue. The issue was mold growing under the film.
