This is ONE big advantage in working for a company that is based in Atlanta they don't see or for that matter care if I store my toys in the warehouse. So not that we have hard winters out here in the NW but it does get below freezing now I won't have to worry about winterizing the RV during football season

Added the green stripping and now to figure out what to do with the front and back. I think we are going to just respray the orginial color. I still need to clean up the front but all the striping is off just need to remove the adhesive part which is the part that sucks

Looking good, I too wish I had a shop like that again. I used too when I worked but then I didn't have the MH. Now I have the MH and no shop... and NO I'm not going back to work. LOL How did the front end turn out?

It may be a little late, but to remove adhesive residue Bestine is the best option. Available in art supply stores, used to thin rubber cement and is great at dissolving pressure sensitive adhesives. It's also good for removing tape without damaging the surface underneath and cleanly getting price stickers off of things.

No. I've used it for years on everything from paper to plastic to paint to metal and never had any adverse effects. Once the adhesive gets wet it just floats off. With vinyl you just need to get it under an edge and add more Bestine as the vinyl pulls off to dissolve the adhesive. When removing paper or things like old masking tape, you just need to let it soak through to the adhesive and the paper will just peel right off.
