Re: Side Lettering Installed

Letters look good; what's up with the house or is this some kind of optical illusion?

looks Great! I'm interested in doing this to my jeep. Did you just buy the lettering from the dealership ? Do the old ones remove cleanly ?

I don't normally like those wheels, but they look real sharp with those tires. What kind and size are they?

LOL! Yes, weird perspective given the opposing grade of the street/lot, it looks like the house is sinking!

Either that or the house is heading for river; better get the JGC out of there!

Thanks, I bought the letters from justforjeeps.com The strips came off pretty quick, I used 15 test fishing line and worked it in a sawing motion, no heat gun needed. The adhesive comes off relatively easily, I did buy (and use) a 3M eraser wheel to aid with removal but if you keep a slow steady peel on the strips they come off real clean and you can save yourself the $25. Goo gone is a must though for the residue. All together between letters and 3M it came out to approx $150 and 1.5 hrs of my time.
