A Solution for Scratched Storage Compartment Hinges

After spending big bucks for the custom paint job on our Forest River MH, I have been very disappointed to see that the paint on the hinges of the storage compartments was quickly scratched off. After only a few trips, the hinges were badly scratched down to bare aluminum. It looked terrible. I had the hinges repainted and the shop manager recommended a paint protection film by 3M(probably the same stuff that's on the hood, fenders, and coach cap). I purchased a roll of the material (under $40), cut strips about 3/4" wide and installed it on all of the hinges. It looks great. I really wish FR would have done something like this straight from the factory.

For those who are interested: 3M Scotchgard Pro Series film Source: Invisible Be sure to read and follow the directions!
