  • Covering over and removing branding from rollout awning covers.

    Hello everyone, This is a post about covering over lettering from vinyl awnings to give the appearance of it being removed. It is impossible to remove the printing without damaging it and making it look worse, but I have found a solution that has been quite successful for me if anyone is interested. I don't like advertising for companies after I have spent my money on a product, and I don't think I should then have to drive around a mobile billboard. My Supercheap Auto Ridge Ryder awning had large white letters which stood out like dogs........ears. I purchased this vinyl paint from Supercheap Auto $15 (make sure it's the Flat Black) taped off the area and gave it 2 coats. It's was a pretty good result. Should work the same on the Kings awnings and other brands like XTM from BCF. Good luck everyone, or you can just ignore my ramblings. Just thought I would put it out on PP for reference for everyone. Cheers

    Thanks mate. I have made a mess of my Kings awning using tee tree oil trying to remove the branding. Will definitely give this a go.

        Thanks for the heads up brother, I just removed my KINGS awning and sprayed the whole unit with the above mentioned product. Looks so much better IMHO.

            I had success with removal of the printed KINGS branded awning.

            I think I ended up using either turps or eucalyptus oil. on a cloth/ multiple clothes. It required a little patience as the print ink smudged really bad to start off with.

            After a few clean rags and 20mins work it was all removed with no sign of it ever being there.

            Cost = $0.

            (No evidence of branding ever being there).

              Not sure what I did wrong but I had no such luck. Spent over an hour scrubbing and made a complete mess. The dyes spread all over the place and also took some of the black dye off the vinyl. $15 for some vinyl paint and now my cover looks brand spanking new. I also reckon the unit looks heaps nicer now that the aluminium mount plate on the back is blacked out too.
