Several people, including myself, have looked into this. Both on IRV2 and Monacoers. It's many thousands of dollars for start up costs. Minimum orders that I've been quoted is 100 at a time.

And each coach model is different (signatures, executives, etc), and each model is treated separately as far as set up costs and minimums.

The real solution is if someone here owned a monaco product and also owned a sign shop and was willing to take on the task.

It's a long shot, but you can check out northwest RV supply and see if they have any Signature signage.

No good way to restore them. Just replace them.

Get a Decal Remover tool like this to remove them (won't damage the paint): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Then any decent sign shop can cut you new ones. Be sure to document (measure) your old decals so they can create and cut one to the correct size. Also you get to pick the material they use. Lots of good UV resistant and color options now.

Here is a company already doing something similar: https://fastdecals.com/shop/other-au...-coach-decals/

They will cut it on a vinyl cutter and give it to you with a backer ready to install. Or many shops will install for you.

Alternatively you can try talking with REV Group. They may have these already cut up. They sell decals and logos on their website now also. https://revrvparts.com/decals-logos

Good luck!

That's a great source, but are those flat decals?

My logo/badge is thick, maybe 1/8"?? Definitely not a flat vinyl decal.

No not that thick. Nobody but you will know the difference.

If you absolutely must have it thick have some custom Stainless ones cut out for you. It will cost you. They can be painted to match.

Here's one source for that. https://yourcustomemblem.com/home

I just got this tip somewhere, probably on this site.

I just used one of these on my Monaco Dynasty logo.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I've only done one so far and I'd say it looks pretty good. It's very easy to use, with a steady hand there's no need to mask anything. Since I just did this earlier this week I can't say how long it will last but it appears to be pretty good paint.

John, NW RV supply does have a Signature Series black and chrome decal. Here is the link: http://www.nwrvsupply.com/Decals_HR/BCsigser.html

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but in case it is. I just ordered 2 Holiday Rambler logo emblems earlier today.

Good luck!
Terry

This paint gives a really nice shiny finish, may need two coats if yours are really dry/cracked. Mine have been out in Florida sun for 12 months and still looking good.

Further tip... cut the end off at a 45 degree angle with a really sharp razor so you are painting with a flat tip instead of rounded. Do the side or back first so by the time you get to the one by the door you are really good at it.

I've been looking at same chrome paint markers but will probably go with silver mirror paint instead. My emblems letters are large, flat and blocky ,a transfer of liquid paint from a block will probably work better.
If you want to steady your hand and help make straight lines much easier ,use or make a drawing wand/ Mahl stick you rest your hand on. Basically dowel with soft sack or cork at the end. Check out some hand lettering vids. It should be easier with paint marker, as a paint brush gets wider as you press on it.
Checked out stainless letters made 1/16" x 3" Monaco Executive is about $460.NOS would probably be over $100 anyway, If my rig was still worth 100k plus,maybe.
Also considered stainless film cut to fit my emblems as they are flat at face. Others could have 3D printed emblems ,then scan, transfer, cut film . Get a couple extra cut for aging and oops. You could leave a border as well.

Thanks for all the replies and ideas everyone , Im now looking at an ooption of taking the decals off and sending out to be chrome plated/dipped.



If only I had a CNC water cutter, Id just do them in stainless




But great ideas and suggestions !

One of the members has re-chrome business and is mentioned to re-chrome mirrors arms and bodies. He could tell you if it is possible to chrome those. Sorry I don't know member name.
