bumper inserts

well i am thinking about getting some for my car... medium grayish because my side stripes are that color. anyways.... if i put these on and leave them on for a while and then decide i dont like them, is it going to hurt my paint at all if i take them off?

Re: bumper inserts

It won't hurt your paint..but...the paint behind the vinyl will not fade like the other paint on your car. That and, it'll probably be a pain to take them off lol.

Re: bumper inserts

The paint fade probably won't be noticable for several years, so if you decide you don't like them within 2 or 3 years, you'd most likely be fine.

Re: bumper inserts

i just installed it on my car actually it was kinda tough...

i spend atleast an hour+ on it. you have to wet the vynal and place it. and then after that squeez all the water from under it. and then take a hair dryer and dry the letters.

but the end result looks great...

Re: bumper inserts

I just painted mine before I had whole car repainted. Turned out alright. The taping was the hardest prt, making everything level and keeping the tape on the bevel for ALL the letters.

If you have an hour and a half, some sandpaper, and 12 bucks to get a can of auto touchup paint/clearcoat its not hard at all.

Re: bumper inserts

Took me about 5 minutes to put them on my car...guess I just have experience with that kinda stuff or something. I do some window tinting on the side.

Re: bumper inserts

Yea I bet window tiniting experience would help. I have done 3 cars all around with Limo Tint from A&A. First time it took like 6 hours for my car. Next 2 were a honda and a Jeep Cherokee. Both took alot less time. The Cherokee was really easy.

Re: bumper inserts

Haha yupp, I hate doing rear windows on mustangs and camaros....I have to say, trying to tint the rear hatch on a camaro is one of the most frustrating things ever. Wayyy too many lines to match up.

Re: bumper inserts

Haha yea and then you try to do it in the dead heat 90 degree 90 percent humidity of the summer. Your in that car, sweating your *** off, in a very uncomfortable position, coming out air bubble for a good 10 minutes or so.

Ive given up my tinting side bsuiness. I did get paid 100 bucks for the honda and 90 for the jeep, after materials I walked away with a pretty penny.
