When we ordered our 2014 Winnebago we talked about the FBP (full body paint) but decided against it for two reasons. The price was about $8,000 extra and they said that if you get the FBP you have to get the diamond shield for an extra $1.200. That added more $$$$ and I had read about the problems with the shield. We did get the Delux Graphics for $3,000. No DS on the front and the areas above and below the graphics is FBP.

When we took our 1999 DS in for a trade in 2010 it looked like it just came off the showroom floor. The side decals were great and the front cap was somewhat pitted with stone chips but not bad.

I think I'll live with just paint on the front.

My 2005 TS select Had some Shield on it Diamond Shield papers in Coach, However I dont have the Diamond Emblem on the right side.

Any way its has Been Black for Some years, I Embarked on the removal of this Nasty Stuff.

First I got PLASTIC razor Blades that fit into a Scraper THIS ARE GREAT !!!! Amazon or Auto Zone. BUY 2 Packs and KEEP a fresh one loaded !!

Next I got the Admiral to take a HEAT GUN and Kept it moving in front of me being very careful with heat and PLASTIC razor Blade Scrapers. I peeled the film off leaving the adhesive. Next I took Xyleen and scraped the glue off (NASTY NASTY NASTY ) I found Keeping Xyleen on the adhesive with Cheap Paint brush Kept adhesive coming off. ( Best Done in the Shade )
Paint under it looks Brand new !! Will wax it several times after done.

I tried many methods to remove my 3M bra. It was left on my coach way too long, because I tried to get it off, starting about 5 years after it was installed (installed 2004) when it started cracking. Labor intensive! So over the years I would try working on it a little bit at a time. Very frustrating. But ... Thanks Diplomat Dan! Dan's advice, from a previous older post on irv.com of "Problems with 3m bra." Finally ended my Clear Bra Removal Nightmare, by using a 3000psi Water Pressure Washer. Viewable video at:
