Hi, all,



My husband, David, and I have just purchased a 20-year-old Rialta. It works great, though cosmetically the outside could use a paint job or something, and the stripes and names need to be replaced. Any tips on making it look better would be welcome. We haven't taken her on the road yet, except for our 10-hour trip driving her from Arkansas back to Central Texas a couple of weeks ago. We're semi-retired and hope to travel in her quite a bit.

welcome with us !


The stripes cannot be fix ,,,,,faded out !


But if the paint is still instact , you could give it a good coumpound and wax to give it a second life ....


It brings back the luster !


I suggest you buy a complete kit on sale .....



Dan
