Back to wrapping the RV8. This post I will show a way to deal with the RV8 Canopy slide rail.
You can't paint, nor polish the RV8 canopy slide rail, but you can wrap it. How?
First I applied a section to the slider.
I applied some paste wax and voila! The canopy slid smoother than ever.
I plan to paint the underside of the slider rail flat black. This area is pretty much a shadow anyway. Even my pictures show it that way. And let's face it, only us anal builders will ever look under there.
This has the added advantage of raising the black plastic canopy slider piece enough to insure it will not slide on the vinyl below it on the rear turtle deck.
One big plus is that when it wears out, you rip it off and put on a new piece in less than thirty minutes.
The more I work with this vinyl the more I am 'con-Vinced' this is the way to go.
