Graphics Removal Rockwood A128S

I'm sure I can't be the first one to do this, nevertheless I thought I'd share my experience with you guys/gals. The graphics on the side of our new A-frame aren't really our style so I decided to remove them. It was time consuming as you might expect but nothing outrageous. It took probably 2 hours all said and done, and if you take your time and peel at just the right angle it'll save you a lot of time cleaning adhesive left behind. The stickers also come up a lot easier if you warm them with a hair dryer or remove them after they've been in direct sunlight for a couple hours.

Everyone knows what the "before" pictures looks like. Click image for larger version

And here's what it looks like sans the stickers. Click image for larger version

I decided to leave the name and model numbers on it just so it's easily identified, but overall I like the clean look with them removed.

Let me know what you think!

Hey that looks really sharp with the stickers removed. I plan on doing the same thing to ours, first thing. I may add my own wide stripes of a custom color, but in a simple, clean style.

Now all you need is 50 yards of real tree Max 4 camo! Mine is also white, I wish it was any other colour. I like the new tan and green ones. I could always hit it with the spray on Plasti dip like the car guys.

Actually, funny you should mention that, I've been thinking I'd really like to Plastidip mine silver to match our tow vehicle. I think it would look really sharp all silver.

I mentioned to my wife that I'd like to remove the decals. She said that she likes them. So, we compromised. We're keeping the decals.

Thanks for sharing this. I was wondering if it could be done and now I know! We have a new tan one and I wish it was white. Ah the grass is always greener. I will like it better without all the racing stripes though.

Actually, driving 75 miles an hour in a blinding rainstorm for hours will get you started on decal removal. Don't ask how I know...
