1985 Excella stripe decals

New to the site and to my own trailer. Among many questions- Does anybody sell replacement side decals, or do you just replace it with paint? I just bought a 32' double door trailer that needs alot of cosmetic help.

How easy was it to remove the old striping?

I have taken the stripe off of one side of my 88 Excella. It was a difficult, fustrating job. I made it harder by trying to do it without scratching the Al, because I do not think I am going to put the stripe back. The stripe peels right off. The glue left is forever.

Did you use a heat gun? Solvent? Anyone else do this and have feedback?

On our 1987 it was an ordeal because the decal was crazed into little pieces. If yours isn't that bad, try a heat gun and see if it will peel off in strips.

3M Vinyl Stripe Remover, 3M Adhesive Remover, heat gun/putty knife all were of some use. The heat gun and plastic scraper turned out to work best on the vinyl once I got the hang of it, then the adhesive remover for the residue. I know you'll have fun with this ...
