Windshield Decal?

I have a 1988 325 motorhome. It's in great shape! But the front shows the wear and tear of driving. I'd like to redo, or replace the gray paint work or decal around the windshield and front side windows. I'm not sure if the original gray is painted on or a decal. It appears to be a decal. Any ideas on the best way to restore the front end?

Front Decal or paint

Here are the pictures of the front gray area of my 325.

Front Decal or paint

Seems as though the picture file is to big. But the area I'm talking about the the gray area around the windshield and front driver and passenger windows. The gray paint/decal is bordered by two pin stripes on the outside edge of the gray paint/decal area. Newer classics have the same paint/decal work, but the gray area extends further back to surround the windows just behind the driver's area.

I'll take some other pictures tomorrow that will be smaller in size and attach them.

Thanks

Don't know what's the problem with uploading pictures. I get file upload errors every time.

Are you using a file hosting service like Photobucket?

Either way you mean like this?



It appears that during the early/mid 80's the decal extended around windscreen and front side windows (photo from Fred's ViewRvs site), but in the late 80s dropped back to just around the windscreen.

Either way I would have thought your best bet would be any local auto vinyl wrap company as I have never seen decal sets for sale anywhere.

Decal around Windshield

Yup, that's what I'm talking about! I kinda figured finding a vinyl wrap company or a local sign shop might be the answer. But you never know what others have to say until you put the questions out there. Thanks a lot!
