Hand painting logos?

Has anyone tried to repaint the logo on you MH or TT? Mine are in sad shape and I was thinking of removing what is left and use the ghosts outline to repaint it with maybe paint for pin-stripping or something else. Please share ideas, pictures, success or failure stores.

Take the old logo to a local sign shop and have them make them with 10 year 3m vinyl.

Hand painting logos?

Bigdls, would a picture with notes on the size work? There is not enough of the old logo left to remove in one piece.

It should Charlie. I took my Executive logo that was in a few pieces and they matched the size and font perfectly. I had mine made a quarter inch larger, just to make sure it covered the discolored area where the plastic logo was.

This was the best solution, as the old logo was broken and the paint was faded. Gluing and re-painting wasn't going to look good.

We couldn't get the old, faded "W" off the sides. Scuffed and prepped and painted over the decal with gloss black textured paint. On it's third season now and one of the "W" corners has peeled a bit - will need to touch up this Spring. Below is the "Before and After." \ken

Did you try ordering the logos from the manufacturer?

In my case, the "Vectra" logo sits on top of the "W" logo. And the "W" logo was the logo that had disintegrated in the call-of-duty (the "Vectra" logo is still in fine shape). Even if I was able to get a replacement "W" I wouldn't have been able to use it without destroying the "Vectra" logo. Any number of after-market sources could be available for logos that are not stacked on top of one-another, I s'ppose. \ken

In my boating days we used guys/gals that would paint what ever we wanted on the transom of the boat.
I guess I forgot all about the peoples after I got out of Boating. I am going to look them up again and have them do it. I just don't have the nerves to do it myself...
It was around $100 bucks back then. I suppose there a little higher now...

The sign shop we used charged all of $3 per logo. I needed 4, but bought 6 for a few spares. Also the shop has it in the computer if I ever need another in the future. Won't be home for a few days, but when I get there, and if I can figure out how to upload here, I'll post a picture.
