MT,
Time with family is much more important than a project that doesn't have to get done right now. You will get it done when you can.
Randy,
I hope your paint over decal works for you. Unfortunately, I will have to remove mine, as they are shrinking and not in shape to be painted over.
Frank

Yep!

Taking 'er to Choteau, MT for the 4th of July celebration this weekend with the family. Two nights of street dances, rodeo, parade, picnics. Woo hoo!

Go to the auto body shop. They sell an adhesion promoter that will help paint stick to plastics. The worst that can happen is that the adhesion promoter might make the sticker shrink or alligator...but the best that can happen is that you get a great bond and the paint sticks well to the vinyl!

Thanks MT, but with the decals shrinking, I think that removing them and then painting is a better option for me. Being in the hot sun tends to shrink the vinyl. I already removed the name on the front cap, haven't gotten them painted on yet, but will in the next couple months.

On a recommendation from a friend, we tried oven cleaner on the decal residue. It worked great!

I had the girls help me mask it all off, and we sprayed it with Rustoleum professional enamel, reduced with naphtha, and added acrylic enamel hardener.

MT, looking good, I've been using the majic brand of enamel paint, so far it's been good I have been spraying clear over also to help with the gloss/hardness
