stripe removal

New question...
I am a long time searcher here and a year plus member. I recently purchased a '93 Coachman like the one jydog once owned and in my remodeling process I would like to remove the decorative striping
and possibly/probably wrap it with some sort of graphic design. I can feel the striping with my fingers so I think it is a decale of some sorts...although one body shop said it was paint another said it was a stick on. Does anyone have an idea about what it is and how it could be removed? thx. Gary.

one last subject....the only thing I don't like about this site is once I start ....2-3 hours go by very quickly.

that's tricky without being there to see it in person. find a somewhat inconspicuous area and see if you can get a fingernail under it. if its a decal, you should be able to get under it and start peeling. just a word to the wise though, check all over the areas with decals. some paint shops will only paint to a body stripe instead of painting an entire panel like they should and replace the striping after a repair. make sure you don't have any crap work like that before you start peeling off decals. that will leave a really crappy line after removing the stripes that will only be able to be fixed with a respray.

best thing for removing any sticker, decal, or other undesired non painted crap off paint is an eraser wheel.

if the stripes are paint, your likely stuck with them

Even if it's a sticker, it might be clearcoated over.. If that's the case, or the stripes are painted, it's probably easiest wrap the whole thing. Or find your local cheap body guy.

Mine was painted. I gave up on trying to remove them early even thought it would have looked great after removing them. It probably would have ended up having to paint the whole thing. Let us know what you end up doing?

86Scotty and I approve of your safety footwear.

Looks nice, but didn't you have another thread on your box van?

jydog: Interesting technique for frosting the doors.....is the material acrylic or polycarbonate? I've had good luck sandblasting/bead blasting to frost, but my cabinet is small and I can't do larger sized panels.
