Re: Help! letters Help!

if they are stickers then get the hairdryer out and you should be able to heat them off. you will need to fully polish the car after as the paint behind the letters will be brighter. if they are painted on then i dont really know any other way than to sand them back and respray.

Re: Help! letters Help!

heat them up good before you start to peel them. might also need something to take off the left over glue.

Amen to that, there's an old Falcon down the road from my place and it obviously had a radio station's sticker on the bonnet, and it still has the freq. range and area. Looks pretty bad.
