rolling cabinet doors - refinish?

Does any one have solutions for old roller doors that are falling apart, and green mold is trying to grow in the cracks?
and how does one remove them?

73' Sovereign in great need of make over! Some of the doors have been painted? or they came that way? just not sure. If I can paint them, I will.

The previous owner painted the interior walls. I can see they painted right over things that probably should have been removed and replaced or refinished. So I will either have to choose to strip all the paint or just paint over it.

in my 1982, the roll-up tambour cabinets over the refrigerator, hall closet, and bedroom overhead and under bed cabinets were woodgrain. the overhead cabinets in the kitchen, over the dinette, and over the front couch were white (ish). I repainted the white-ish ones white and cleaned the wood grain ones.

look at this video...great info:

On my trailer the tambour door and the tracks are removed as one unit.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

73s had tambour doors that rolled into 2 plastic spiral tracks. They can be reconstructed but it is labor intensive. There are threads and posts on the subject including mine. You can also buy new tambour by the sheet or piece. The faux walnut is a paper decal so be careful with strippers.
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.
