Montana RV: Decals

With summer bidding travelers to pack-up and seek adventure, there’s nothing like some Detailing to put a spark in your ride! The Spokane Shop was recently privileged to get a new project to work on, the road trip’s best friend – the RV. The customer who came to our shop was looking to put a new face on their family’s RV. The old design was flaking and the warranty didn’t cover it. The Spokane Shop gets a lot of similar requests from people who were let down by the warranty of their RV/car/motorcycle/boat they bought in regards to the decals. Seeing the need to create a peace-of-mind warranty, The Spokane Shop steps up to the plate and pledges to stand behind their high quality work.

In regards to this particular job, the customer called into The Spokane Shop after hearing from a friend about Kon’s work. He wasn’t sure if Kon had previously worked on RV’s but decided to give him a call and find out. As it turns out, Kon has had years of experience with working with large automobiles ranging from RVs to city buses. The customer was convinced and decided to invest in upgrading his RV. He previously thought he could at least get the decals off completely so as to give the RV a clean look but only managed to partially remove them. The problem with RV owners trying to do their own decal improvements is that they lack the time and skill to properly remove the decals that were designed to stay. The Spokane Shop has special tools and years of experience in detailing surfaces and removing the layers of old decals.

The challenge with adding Decals to an RV are primarily centered on the detailing before the application of the graphics themselves. To ensure a quality bond, The Spokane Shop clears away the old decals and starts creating the perfect surface to which the decals will bond. The decals are designed and printed beforehand with the customer giving the final approval. The exciting process is in the creation and designing of the graphics. The customer has the option to choose and customize their choice of designs, all under the helpful guidance and advice of a Spokane Shop associate. Depending in your design choice, The Spokane Shop is able to project how the decals will look before the actual application, giving you the chance to see your creation before its finalized. When all is said and done, the process from start to finish takes about three day.

When the labels came, the RV was detailed and placed in a controlled environment where Kon and his team set to work. In order to produce a product that would withstand the abuse of the road and weather, Kon orders the highest quality decals to make sure his customers don’t have to worry about fading or cracking for many years to come. The application requires the skill of professional hands which is exactly what The Spokane Shop offers.

The Shop has nearly two decades of experience in working with customizing various add-ons to automobiles, ranging from window tinting to decals. In this case, the RV owner was also given the option of installing a Clear Bra on the front of his RV. A Clear Bra is a virtually invisible plastic shield that is applied to the body of the car to prevent it from getting scratches and rock chips. It’s a favorite option to those who commute often and want their cars to look new for many years. Also, the Clear Bra is a must add-on to those who take pride in their classic rides. All the services that are offered by The Spokane Shop are covered with the best warranty in the industry. The reason for this being the professionals at the shop have the skill and time to do it right and make it last.

Window tinting is a specialty of The Spokane Shop. No one can window tint like Kon and his team and with all the positive reviews, it’s an easy choice for those who are looking for car window tinting. Best place to tint windows in Spokane is right here at The Spokane Shop. The mirror tint that The Spokane Shop uses differs from the cheap tinting that other places offer. If you are unawares, you can get billed as if you’re paying for top quality tints but in reality are buying metal tints which in turn will not block heat and interfere with your wireless devices. You also need to consider the laws that regulate the window tinting business and with The Spokane Shop, you can rest assured that they will explain everything to you in a clear, concise manner.

You’ll find no better place in Spokane where skill and the desire to create quality work meets when it comes to the work that The Spokane Shop does. Give them a call, and before you know it, you’ll be rolling off the checkered floor in your new and improved ride!
