Default Graphic Details

I have a white 2012 Pleasureway Lexor. The decals began to fade, crack, peel 1 year after purchasing. A local body shop owner told me I should get higher quality decals similar to what's on police cars in my area and told me which graphics shop to go to. I do trust the bodyshop owner and do trust the graphics shop. But what should I look for or ask for when I go in? Can someone explain the differences in decals? I was given replacement decals (box says 3M), but not sure I want to use those again and have to replace in another year. Although I'm ok with replacing with same or similar decals, I would like new graphics with a more bold twist. But what happens when the original decals are removed? Bottom decals are on metal Chevy and top decals are on the fiberglass top. I assume the white paint color may be different where the decals were applied due to UV blockage. Any insight would be helpful, i.e. mil, thickness, brand, etc.

I would remove them all.

That's just me.

I agree with removing them. You mention the difference in the white, you can take a little rubbing compound and blend it so it isn't noticeable. I would drive around without and see how it appeals - without them, you don't have that "I'm a Camper" look. I don't know the difference in decals, but owing that police cars hold up and you could get the equivalent...go for it. Safe travels, Ron

3M is a good brand and personally even after being in the body shop business for over 20 years, I never had much of a problem with cracking decals. They did fade but that is it and I have done many of them. I have heard many stories on these forums about it but I haven't experienced it. One thing I also have done was I painted stripes, flames and such on many cars in my time. You can have that done if you really want some defining contrasting stripe.
