The back decal on my 177 SE Retro…the one that says White Water…is pealing off.  The entire top edge of this large decal has pealed and curled about an inch.  It looks quite tacky, with the adhesive a mess where the decal was.

I’d really like to hear from anyone who has had the problem and fixed it to where it looked good.

 

Thanks,

Mark Threlkeld

    We had the same issue with our decals. Living in Texas decals don’t stand up to the sun very well so our solution was just to remove them. A hairdryer and about 20 min was all it took. Use GooGone to remove any left over adhesive. I really looks more “Retro” without the graphics.

I did the same thing as Txtinez — I removed all of the Riverside decals.  Cleaner look.  I figured they would eventually fade and peel anyway…

Thanks for the responses.  I decided to try and fix the peeling.  So, I cleaned the exposed adhesive area with soap and water, let it dry, then hit it with a heat gun to reactivate the glue.  Looks good.

A Whitewater rep told me they don’t stock the large decals anymore anyway.  So knowing you can clean the whole thing off is very good to know.  I may go that route in the future.
