Peel the stripes off first. From what I have seen easy to see where the stripes were, then lay out the tape.

In real life I'd be more likely to strip the stripes off and paint the whole thing camouflage. That or flames. Maybe scallops.

Wraps ain't cheap. If it's just stripes, no prob. Lay out the stripes with painter's tape, paint the stripes, pull off the tape. Cheap, easy, and as accurate as you are. For a decal, I'd just put the design on card stock, cut it out, put it in place, paint. Easy peasy. AND you can honestly say you did it yourself.

PACountryGuy Very nice, woodman

Where did you get the vinyl, and what type of vinyl did you get?

By the way, sreilly, wait until you see the price to place stripes or a wrap on your travel trailer. It will be alarming.

woodman12 I do use a scanner if the image is small , and aspire on the trace---but I have found the digitizing quicker and old diagrams with a grid are perfect as the scanner will pick all this up and has to be edited
The least amount of edits pleases me

marecat3 I get all kinds of strange things people want me to be able to laser. I have one guy that brings in plaques way to big for my scanner, this last time he brought in a t-shirt. I have gotten to the point that I just take a picture put in aspire and draw it.

woodman12 This was a different exercise for me, how to get an exact copy of an RV decal, I am used to getting plans or line diagrams so it was a challenge and worked out, would do it again
Scanning could have also worked but then its a lot of editing , I was lucky here there was hardly any editing
