If you're going to the trouble of clear coating, just paint with quality automotive paint & be done with it.

Paint numbers are with small touch-up bottles that came in "The Black Bag"...at least in our case.

His isn't painted. Have Body shop pick out closest color to the Tan.

Find a good auto paint supplier. The high end guys have a camera that can take a picture of your paint and make a formula to match. It does work.

Paint shop should be able to match it, That's what the RV repair shop did on mine. They ordered the lettering and logos from Redwood but they will probably have to go thru Tiara to get them now. Tiara should be able to look up what you need via your VIN.

I used a product called Poli Glow it works great and easy to used. It comes as a kit and has every thing you will need to apply it. You can buy it at Amazon for $79.00. I have before and after pictures.

John...how long does the application last? I have to clean/wax our caps about every three months because the fading returns.
