    Matte decal help

    Matte decal help-9a9678ac-b301-4fc7-9ff8-a061a2b42948-jpeg

    this is a matte decal on a 2016 Jeep. Can it be saved? Only when wet does it look good. Looking for options if possible to restore, thanks.

    tried McKee, 303….

    No expert here as I have never dealt with your situation... But... If I were in your shoes I'd be trying some trim restorer products.

    Re: Matte decal help

    Looks like it is beyond repair. You could try deep cleaning it with Meguiar's M39 and then protect it. Dr. Beasley's makes some protective products for matte and there are now coatings. You could try that and see how that works out. But it looks like it may be time to replace them.

    Mike Phillips has a write up on polishing matte vinyls and that works to a degree.
