Default Repairing Paint on 2008 Gulfstream Mini Cruiser

I have a 2008 Gulfstream Mini Cruiser where the paint above the kitchen window was damaged when I was removing glue from a velcro-strip. (see photos)

Does anyone know whether this patch of paint can be repaired, including the clear-coat?

Thanks

We had a sticker inside one of the cabinets with all the paint color codes. So we called gulfstream. When you order the paint they will put all in arousal cans to complete your repair. Even the clear came also. we ordered the paint for our 05 to touch it up in areas..
Good luck and happy camping!!

Did you order the paint from Gulfstream directly? Thanks

Yes and they were very helpful considering we have a 17 year old coach. I had to replace the complete 21' awning that was destroyed by the previous owner and the new arms came white. now that it's installed and works tons better then the original. I plan to pull the arms back off and paint them to the paint scheme on the coach to make them blend right in. It's a process but will look great when it's complete. I say when because there is always something to be done to keep your coach maintained. Cleaning never stops!!

I also repaired where the old mirrors were because they were just plain ugly and relocated them and tucked them in tighter so it looks much nicer now.

Good luck!! And Safe travels!!

The trick to painting the outside of an RV depends mostly on your patience and having steady hands. A little knowledge of spray paint helps a lot too. Before you start painting, you need to prepare the surface to be painted. A little preparation ahead of time will make this whole project a lot less complicated than it should be. This can also lead to better results.

Local shops such as O'Reilys have ability to scan your existing paint, and color match it. This is better sometimes to accommodate fading and color changes that occur over time.
