So just to clarify, the rhino covering that is being discussed here is not the black rhino skin that you see in the bed of trucks, this rhino finishing/coating has the same paint job/artistic pattern-designs as the original design (they just use/create a stencil from your design) of the rig. Once the paint job over that rhino skin is done, you don't even notice it unless you're 2-3 feet away from it.


Nope. The rhino covering is the same as the black rhino skin you see in the back of pickups. They can add some coloring to it but it works best if it's a dark color. Good stuff, but not my cup of tea...Dennis

I'm pretty sure the OP (sarhvac1) is talking about the Rhino skin I described. Had I not seen it with my own eyes I'd even give you the benefit of the doubt, but not in this case. sorry. I even got some literature, when I find it I'll post it.

I got a quote from ugly shield removal and it was $950, he said it took two people all day. He did a tiffin by us in Fort Myers and it looked awesome when he was done!

I'm going to get mine done next year, the motor home update for this year will be MCD shades or a new couch.

So the stuff I was talking about, and I think the OP meant the same product, is called Vortex coating. Actually if you have 10-15 mins you can read all about it at

I did mine using plastic razor blades, Goo Gone Pro-Power, and Turtle Wax polishing compound, with great results.I ordered the razor blades and bought the Goo Gone at Walmart. It takes the adhesive off very easily. It's too hard for me to post pictures on this site, so if you want to see my results send me your e-mail address. Just take your time and save lots of money.It's not a hard job.

A tip that most folks don't know.

If you don't want to remove it but remove the mold so it won't show. Spray pure bleach on it let it sit overnight, spray it again the next day, and the next, and the next until it's gone. After the mold has disappeared, wax, wax, wax.

I know that sounds unconventional but it works. I know the 3M is probably cracked but it's the mold that makes it look so bad.


it doesn't have any cracks at all wonder if it will still get under to remove the mold ?

cool stuff. I guess we're talking about 2 different products, but similar. Anyway, ck out the Vortex coating products, it can't hurt.
