Graphic scheme

right now i have the celebrity graphic scheme on my car. i'm thinking about changing it to a much smaller design. i've had it on their since may of last year. do you think there may a difference in color with the parts that were left uncovered by the vinyl?

the vinyl is silver and black, the car's color is solar yellow.

you have an '03, so fading should be minimal..i don't fading should have come into effect yet.

and plus, your car is solar yellow, which because of the properties of yellow it will appear to fade slower than most other colors. i still don't think its faded virtually at all, though.

get some veilside replica graphics! lot smaller, still very, very clean thumbsup

thx, any ideas or methods as to how i can remove the graphics and adhesive myself? it'll cost $300 to have it removed and place the new design, so i'm trying to save some money.

Hair dryer and dental floss. For real. But you need someone to help you.

Best way use a hair dryer, a rubber scrapper, and goo gone to remove the adhesive.

USe the hair dryer to heat up the vinyl, the rubber scrapper to start a peel, then you should continue to heat and pull... try to use the scrapper as little as possible to avoid a scratch. Start in the un noticeable spot.

Then use the goo gone and a cotton sock or something to remove any adhesive residue.
