Has anyone posted the hood vents trick? U take 2 old house heat vents u know for like ur ac and that ya anyhow u find where u want them on ur hood trace the inner part bottom then cut it out then slid em in and rivot or weld em in place also if u get the ones that have the little lever ob em wen it rains u can close the vents so water dont get under ur hood and it looks really cool to painting em wont hurt either
If U can C the top of ur Jeep its not tall enough!
Yeah. I measured 3" out from the edge that goes against the body and marked with a sharpie. Marked with some tape and eye balled the angle going down. I did one pass with the razor blade, took the tape off, did another deeper pass, then did a 3rd pass that cut all the way through.
Brilliant! I wouldnt think it would be that easy. First sign of weather warm enough to take them off, cut and paint them its being done.
Yeah it "sweats" out the color. Just be careful not to melt it
This tells me they use a BOATLOAD of pthalates in the fenders. It looks like it works really well, just be careful to reduce contact with the "sweat". If it behaves that way its likely a carcinogen and an estrogen mimic. Again, something where my career provides useless yet interesting information.
Just dont do it at night. And only donit once. If you keep going over the same area for some reason it will look like crap. And dont sit the heat gun lightly on the flare. I have a small streak in mine now.

Those of you having problems with stickers/residue. I work in a bio-med warehouse and I constantly have to remove stickers from equipment. Always start from least potent and work your way up. Here's what I do. . .
1) Try mild soap
2) Hair dryer and razor blade (this almost always works)
3) if just the dryer isn't working, soak the sticker in denatured alcohol for a bit. The alcohol will almost always take away residue as well
4) Industrial strength Goof off
6) and one special chemical that will burn your lungs out for the really, really hard stuff
Heat and an agent to loosen the sticker are going to be your best tools. Slide a razor under there and your sticker should just pop right off
