Ok, I know this might be dumb, but please bear with me.
We just bought a 2000 Newmar Mountainaire. We absolutely love it. There are two places on the stripes that are cracked. Only two. I don't want to take all the striping off for two sections. Has anyone ever painted over the stripes?
The cracked stripes are dark brown...I just can't figure out what kind of paint to use?
Please give me your opinions, but be kind, I am not trying to sound like a nut.

Actually I think this is a very intelligent question. Sorry I don't have the answer, but I'm sure there are others that know how to deal with what you are asking.

You know I have the same thing happening to the decals on my fiver and they are more like spider webs in the decals. Some are getting pretty ugly. I have not even given a thought about painting over them but I sure would be interested in hearing if anyone ever has. I wonder if something like fingernail polish would work?

Not a dumb question at all !

If you are wanting to fill in the gap, an auto boudy paint will do well. If you are going to wanti it to stick to the vinyl graphics itself you may have to ask a paint specialist. You will definitely want to use a good polish with UV protection on the graphics as well to preserve them as best possible. Good luck and take care.

I don't have an answer for you, just want to say that what I love most about this group is that there are NO "dumb questions"! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. If you have a question, you can feel free to ask it, without worrying about someone thinking you're an idiot.

Heck, if you are in NW Indiana tqake a ride over to Napannee (sp?) to the Newmar factory. Maybe they can repair it for you.

I always tell people that the only dumb question is the question unasked.

I have painted over decals on my old motorhome. Pieces were blown away by the previous owner with a pressure washer. First, I filled in the area with body spot filler, then sanded even with the decal. I was lucky to find a matching spray paint at Home Depot or Walmart (can't remember which). I also used the same method to fill in spider cracks. Could not tell it was repaired. I then used Protectall to keep the decals looking new and protecting them from UV. Good Luck.
