Take a bit of polish, even toothpaste in a pinch, and rub a small patch on the upper if it goes black the clearcoat is already gone, polish away .

What areas do you tape off or need to protect when using stripper? I am now determined to strip my 89 25ft Excella. Did the decal come off with stripper used for clearcoat?

We used plastic film to cover windows and plastic shields. We took off all lens (Brake lights and other reflectors) and then taped over the holes. The decals were the toughest to remove. Ot took 3-4 applications of stripper to remove them.
The plastic film we used was the temporary carpet plastic in a roll that is used when someone is working on your house. I bought it at lowes. It stuck on the glass and peeled off weeks later with no problem.

Akronguy, what about the two blue 3/8 inch bands above and below decal? Also the 1 1/4 inch band at the base? These appear to be plastic, so do I need to cover these at stripping with this product?
