    Quick lunchtime project - really easy & too less than 30 minutes.

    - Tools used-
    1. Hairdryer
    2. Plastic thin scraper (I got these )
    3. Goo Gone (citrus based sticky stuff remover) ( )
    4. Stuff to wash & wax car after.
    5. A little patience :)

    - Technique -
    1. Heat the letters up with hairdryer (keep it moving).
    2. Apply a little pressure between letter & bodywork with scraper, you can feel it wiggle after 15-20 secs of heat.
    3. Gently peel off the letter, easy does it.
    4. Remove the sticky residue with GooGone on a (clean) rag.
    5. Clean the car & wax, to ensure no residue is left on bodywork.

    Why you may ask - well that Model S lettering is a really ugly dated font, I like the clean look & well..... maybe I wouldn't have done it if it was a P90DL :)

    Nice job! Love the color.

    Some letters fell off our X so I pulled the rest. I was going to have them replaced but I think I like the look better without. Looks great on the S too.
