Vexing vinyl 

I gave Smokey a much-needed bath late last week. During cleanup, I saw the extent to which my hood-side vinyl nameplate has deteriorated.

It’s a little frustrating, given that it’s less than four years old, and was purchased from what many consider to be the name in vinyl decals. And, about this being seven-year vinyl …

Plans for a replacement are in the works, but I must make time to touch up the graphic first.



  1. I wonder if they will replace it because it didn’t last the expected amount of time. I have to imagine the sun in your part of the U.S. may have had something to do with it breaking down too quickly. Best of luck getting it replaced.

    1. That’s an interesting thought. I’ve not explored their warranty on this, as I’ve never been fully satisfied with the shade of silver. For less than $20, I’m going to get a replacement in a better-quality vinyl.

      I thought about the sun, too. But, the allegedly three-year Oracal 651 bear paws on my fenders are almost the same age, and they look like they were put on yesterday.
