    try your local art/tech college.
    they usually welcome odd/one off jobs and you only pay for the materials used.

    worth asking.

    or ask me?

    i have a vinyl cutter and can do vinyl graphics,

    HOWEVER, i can only do graphics made up of solid vinyl colours,

    a lot of motorhomes nowadays have photo style graphics for their pin stripes and motifs (i.e. gradients in the colours etc)
    thats done using a dye sublimination printer onto a white vinyl, and costs a lot because the printer is so expensive, but the dyes it uses are even more expensive, most use a ribon style dye dispensing system, a bit like to old dot matrix printers,

    so if you print out a graphic of one colour, you waste the dyes on the rest of that strip of ribon, likewise if you print out a 12 inch wide graphic on a 48 inch wide printer, your wasting 36 inches of dyes,

    anyway, if your numbers are a solid colour, or made up of solid colours, then i should be able to help,
    i could also do some custom graphics to make the motorhome your own at the same time if you like (they can be removed with a hairdryer if you sell the van)

    and i'd only ask for payment of the materials used,

    The Rat's Graphix do really good designs,
    as I wanted my 'Blue Panther's' face design making into graphics for the front of my scooter,
    and luckily Gazz was able to do that for me.

    It took him a while to cut out all the pieces & lay them on top of one another (to make up the face), but well worth the price. :Smile:

    I also had 'The Blue Panther' done in yellow text for the back.
    came out really well, and I'd reckomend Gazz's graphix's to anyone looking for that personal touch.

    if the it's the dealers fault it needs a re-spray, then it should be his problem or getting the replacment numbers,

    tho if they are really metal, then they should come off and be able to be re-used with new adhesive, check he dosent bend them whilst taking them off and stick them back on with a big blob of silicone sealant tho.
