Ugly compartment doors

I just purchased a '96 Thor Residency 35' recently. Everything inside is great except the compartment doors. I'm DIY. Any suggestion what I should do. Please don't ask me to bring to the shop, since it cost $$$. 5 compartment doors.

I might consider install diamond-brite stars liners over them?????

:welcome,

Mine are just faded and after waxing they are still faded, How about sanding and a re-spray. I have seen some good results with spray bombs (spray cans).
I attempted to redo my front stripe with them and it really turned out okay but I goofed on the taping and have to redo. I saw a guy on this site that re-sprayed his front bumper and looked great. Prep is the key .
Post some Pic's as you proceed, My pics are after first attempt and will have to re-do because of a bad tape job...

I would respray them. The fiberglass grill on my '97 Aerbus had a lot of chips on it so I decided to respray it a year ago. First I cleaned and sanded it. Then I applied a few coats of adhesion promoter (sanding in between coats), then applied a few coats of primer, applied a few coats of factory color spray paint (sanding in between coats), and then finished it with a few coats of clear coat. I have very happy with the results and it has held up very nicely. Looks like new. I did this over the course of 2 warm days as I wanted to make sure to give it a lot of time in-between coats to dry and cure. Good luck!

Thank you for the info. I will just use simple spray. I do have my sprayer that I used on my ultralight trike. I did lot of prepping.
