Cheap Mod Day

Gauge Rings - $30.
Debadge - ummm, piece of dental floss, couple sprays of goo gone - $0.05?

The pictures don't do it justice, I really like the way the debadged trunk looks!! Very pleased with the rings too!!

pretty much. I didn't use heat, just sawed through with dental floss, took most of the foam and such off with my finger nail. Sprayed goo gone on, twice, since I probably didn't let it sit long enough the first time ... lightly scrubbed, wash, wax, voila.

Believe it or not, but peanut butter works great on getting the sticky stuff off as well.

Car looks great Seven, nice and clean!

I did the same with my bros car last weekend. saw it off with dental floss, but to clean the glue i used Turtle Wax Bug and tar remover, it came off quick and safe for clear coats.

That's interesting about the peanut butter! If I knew that before it could have saved me a trip to CT. But then I wouldn't have had much left for my sandwiches.
