Its prolly just a vinyl sticker so just get a hair dryer and warm it up I used a tooth pick to slowly peal it off.

Use the hair dryer as stated before. Then grow out your fingernails and pick away! If it is really stubborn they sell these really large eraser things at the autobody store that are awesome at removing that stuff.

Thanks for the comments guys. Maybe I should tint them. Didnt plan on it, but it might turn out. Ill have to look at jwakamud'* and decide. The sticker will be the project for the weekend.

Follow Haro'* write-up in the Detailing Forum. Be sure to use the wheel for the center reflector, I used the 1/8 bit and drilled the hell out of it. Had to use quite a bit of silicon.

Don't tint as dark as the PS above. A light tint and some clear (maybe just 2 coats of tint) would be killer. Light smoke.

Well said! Mine was bright yellow, orange and green.
I mean BRIGHT!


By the way, great job. It looks so clean, like factory.
