No worries. Let me know how you go.

Looks ok but be careful. The inks they use on those graphics only has a two year outdoor life. Between 18 months and 2 years the ink fades quite dramatically and needs to be re-done or the car looks like crap. The normal vinyl tapes you see on cars (or any other sign for that matter) has a 7 year outdoor life and holds it's colour quite well. Even colours in the red range hold their color well.
Just something to bear in mind. :thumbup:

I'll ask them all these questions, when they make contact.
the contract is for five years, which suits me fine because the commission pays for the gas each week,s that's taken care off.

now I need your expertise...how would they remove these graphics, and would it do any damage to the paintwork.

If the tapes are on the car for a period of time you will notice the difference in the paint work when you remove the tapes.
There is no real damage to the paint work (if taken off with care), however where there is no graphics on the car, the exposed paint will "weather" compared to the paint under the graphics. Therefore you have two different states of weathering on your paint work, which is the noticable difference.
This can be overcome in some cases by a very good cut & polish, but 9 times out of 10 you will need a re-spray if you want the car to keep it's good looks.

I hope that made sense!! :rolleyes:

It can become noticable if you don't look after your car. But that's where the catch 22 is. If you look after your car too well, you'll affect the signs. If you don't look after it enough it's hello Mr Spraypainter... :rolleyes:
