Paint Easily Rubs Off CTX

Post by detectorman5050 » Sat May 18, 2019 10:10 pm

Don't get me wrong, the CTX is a very sturdy machine, and a great metal detector. However, the painted decals on the control box and battery rub off incredibly easily. When wet you can literally rub them off with your finger.

I've noticed other CTX owners have mentioned having the same experience with the paint job as above.

Once certain CTX decals start to half rub off, then I just rub them off completely (looks better.)

However, I was thinking could I replace the lost painted on decals with some sort of adhesive 'custom decals'?

Thanks Koala, possibly a bit too involved for me. I see that you can get customised vinyl stickers printed, based on an image you send them.

I'm probably wasting my time though, as my CTX gets a lot of water on it, and the stickers will probably have peeled off by the end of the week!
