I have spent the last two weeks trying to strip off all the stripes all 2 layers off the RV. it has been a tough job. Decided I didnt need to rent the wheel. Not sure if that was a good idea or not. It took me 4 days to get both layers off. Now I am working onThe tape residue that was left underneath. WOW it is taking longer than I thought it would. Due to the age of the RV the fade is noticeable. If I don't end up reprinting I suppose I will have to restripe with the same exact pattern as before. I am wondering how I will tackle painting the window frames. They are solid rust lol. This is a challenge but has been fun too. Inside is a Hawaiian theme and I would love to carry that to the outside as well. I saw a mural on a camper that was just fabulous. I have many talents but murals isn't one of them. I think I can redo the stripes as long as it doesn't get too complicated. Most of the campers I see don't have a lot of color. I would like some yellow orange maybe red. I wonder if so
E colors fade faster than others? The camper was originally burnt orange and brown. It was redone in all blues around 91. Tomorrow I will tackle more tape residue. It seems to show up over night. I am tellingyou this thing had a heck of a lot of stripes. Everything I read said I needed to remove them to redo it. Please let that be true. Anyway I am having a blast.
