Rally Prep (paint related)

Unread post by 04DetroitLS » Fri May 07, 2010 10:04 am

OK here goes.. haven't washed my car since oooo........ Sept, maybe Aug..
Anyway... I have a slight amount of rubber build up on the fenders

best way to remove it? I usually just leave it on there as a war wound for the season ;)

Also, the hood has some flat black on it w/o clear, any suggestions of prepping that for the hood decal? If it pulls a Mike and strips the paint it really isnt a big deal, but I'd like to keep it in tact if possible ;)


anything else I should do?

feel free to donate to the build fund as it has been rerouted to the rte 66 road rally fund LOL

I'm almost tempted to ditch the V6 idea on there and dump a duramax into her just for lulz
just think if a 5k# truck can run 11.20s what a car half the weight could do LOL

Just leave it on there till next year!

No a hair dryer on high would loosen the adhesive and it would lift off but if you spray bombed the hood you may have to use an Goo be gone to get rid of the excess.
