Removal of strips on EBII wagon

Well guys after looking & looking at the new wagon I have decided on nice clean lines & the strips down the side just dont cut it ........

Re: Removal of strips on EBII wagon

Lisa, are your refering to the uppser stripes that run down the sides of the car?
If so, im pretty sure u can just peel them off. When i was looking at my EB, it had them and some of it was lifting at the front, i havent bothered to take it off, but im thinking it can be done quite easily.

Re: Removal of strips on EBII wagon

Gulp..!!!

Heat them up with hairdrier or heat gun and pull them off..With two people

one with the gun and the other pulling the strip off...

Some turps or petrol etc to remove rest of glue...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: Removal of strips on EBII wagon

Thats it, thanks John...... but I think I would have to get a bumper mod &/or other bumpers ..... I'm not keen on the strips there either :p

I will add that this will happen in time....... how much would you expect it to cost if I do it all myself ????
