Decal Peeling

Our Shockwave is only two years old. A few of the decals have started to peel at the top. Any suggestions would be helpful to prevent peeling.

The only real fix is to replace them and then store inside or under a cover. Doesn't seem to really matter how you condition them, the weather and temp changes will eventually kill them. Especially if you are in a sunny climate.
Ours lasted about five years before they started cracking.
If yours are peeling this soon, they might not have been installed correctly. Call FR and maybe you will get lucky and they will replace them.

After 12 years, our front cap decals had faded and worn out (too much scrubbing, I suppose).
We found closely matching decals on eBay from a seller in eastern Europe. About $80 including shipping for the whole front cap decal set. High quality vinyl. I installed the decals 4 months ago, and so far they are staying on quite well.
