    Removing Vinyl

    Guys I found a really nice WS6. Problem is there is some vinyl on the car, you cant really notice it, but it aggrivates me, and if I buy it I want it off. Only thing is I dont want it to be noticable that something was removed. Here is the pic.

    You might be able to warm it and peel it off, very very carefully. Then get it bufffed and polished. Other wise any good detail shop worth the cost should be able to help ya out.

    Awesome. We removed one before on a friends car, it was a 97 Formula, took the thing off and the paint all around where we removed it looked faded as heak. Now I just gotta work the dealer down.

    Does the dealership have a body shop? Make that part of the deal, that they remove the graphics and buff it out. If not it's real easy. I've done it on two different vehicles of mine. If you have a heat gun, that works best, but a blow drier would work too I guess. Just warm it up a bit and they'll peel right off. I doubt it's faded too bad. Black and red seem to fade worse than most other colors.
