Blue Exterior Stripe

Has anyone replaced the blue exterior decal on their Excella? Just wondering how hard it was to get the old crumpling one off and the new one on, or should I have one painted?

Thanks Vickie

Vickie, I removed the two-tone blue stripe on our '89 Excella. I tried 3M adhesive remover / decal remover but had no luck. A heat gun and beveled pieces of nylon product 3/4" wide to 1.5" worked the best. I found these nylon strips in the flooring section of a ceramic tile store or HD. I think they were actually for room to room transition pcs. Anyhow, they worked. I finished up with an eraser wheel chucked into my electric drill. This is a body shop supply for removing decals, etc. Maybe that would work on your whole stripe - but it would be very slow. I tried stiff metal putty knives but they gouged too easily. Good luck. It is a LOT of work!
