Default Oxidized Decals on RV

I have a 2001 Class A Motorhome and some of the decals are oxidized. What product do I use to remove the oxidation without harming the decals?

Thanks

Default Re: Oxidized Decals on RV

Welcome to Wax Forum!

Decals would be in the "your results may vary" category. They may be beyond any resurrection.

The logical approach would be to try a vinyl dressing such as our Protectant; but you may need our Back-to-Black, which is like a vinyl dressing on steroids.

With any product in a situation like this, experiment first in an inconspicuous area and see how the finish reacts initially as well as over a day or two.

The surface should be clean and cool.

Apply with a soft applicator and massage gently into the surface. Let it penetrate for a few minutes and buff gently with a soft terry towel and let it dry overnight and see how it looks.

It cleans the surface, making it smoother, hence it sort of slides through the air a little easier, theoretcially making your car, or motorhome in this case, go that little bit faster.
Hmm! Is that was the smell is ..... Naah! Tony, don't go there. (Nyuk nyuk nyuk)

Tony.
PS. Sorry Admin, I just couldn't help myself.
