Repaint - Save Original Labels/Stickers

Hi,

When repainting a body, is there a (smart) way to save the original car labels/stickers like the certification, emission ones etc ?

Thanks.

Regards G.

Only if you can find them. Most of the stickers for the US spec cars are not available. The sets that are for sale in Europe are rarely the right ones for the cars they are said to be for.

getv2000, if you plan to remove them. use a hair dryer to heat the sticker. Work slowly and carefully to pull them off. I've been working on stickers for my car for the last 6 months. It's a tedious job, but can be done.

I had some success using tech. grade methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) to dissolve the adhesive that holds the stickers to the paint.

I have to be patient to successfully remove an intact sticker. It maybe took one to three hours, with several breaks, feeding MEK from a 10cc syringe tipped with a 24 gauge blunt nose needle onto each newly exposed edge of the adhesive. (all can be bought from McMaster-Carr) I removed a couple of near perfect stickers this way. They have an age appropriate amount of wear for the car, which I like.

I used high-temperature sheets of double sided tape cut to size to re-attach them to the car. These sheets I bought from an eBay vendor. I paid the extra money for the high-temp. double sided because of the heat in the engine bay.

It's also available at Home Depot, in their paint department.

I would love to see some pictures to see how that worked out. It sounds like a great idea.

Tom -Carclassic.biz aka Classic Car Decals is out of business. I placed an order with them and two months later had to get a refund from the company which handles their credit card transactions. The transaction handler couldn't get hold of them either.

I tried to get hold of the site owner, Bill, directly using hooligan@speedpal.com - his email - and the message bounced back as undeliverable.

I wish someone would take over the business, as I have been hunting a FISPA decal for my SPICA airbox for over a year -

I don't think that's Bill's website. That place is in Florida, I think. I looked up the address and it was another business.

Lokki,
I sent an email to Bill with a link to this thread. Hopefully it went through and he can reply. My suspicion is that the label you search for may be too new for Bill as he specializes in Giulietta and Giulia but maybe I am wrong.
