This is, in my opinion, the best way to attack it if you're going to do it yourself. I spent $$$$ on just about every solvent that everyone recommended. None worked as well as this process

I could live with a little yellowing or pits. What really makes it look bad is when it starts to develop the cancerous mold underneath.
I just just finished removing the final section on our coach. In the 5 years I owned coach the mold got progressively worse. Looks like a new coach in front now.

Got a quote from a RV dealer of $2,000 to remove my 3M. Way too much I think.

He removed the old and installed new Diamondshield for $2000. The new material has a lifetime warranty. This was done in Red Bay AL by the guy that manages the DiamondShield application personnel at the Tiffin Plant.
