Jul 7, 2015 update to the Mazda Miata - Sunburst Yellow project car

De-Stickering Our Lemon

Our lemon looked entirely too clean after sticker removal.
There were a lot of stickers.

Our project Miata‘s main purpose in life has been to enable our 24 Hours of LeMons exploits. However, we’ve never had much of a theme to display as many competitors in the series do.

But never fear, we’ve finally come up with a good idea. All the stickers are coming off to make room for some more interesting and entertaining graphics. Stay tuned for the finished product.

What did you use to remove the large number panels?

In reply to wvumtnbkr:

The interns, haha. I peeled them up by the corners. If you don't have nails, sliding a razor blade under the corner until it's up enough to grab it works. After that, just rip it off and clean off any residue with Prep All

I have interns at work.

One of them drives on our team.

Challenge accepted!

If that Miata does not become a Minion, there is no use running it...

I must have gotten the wrong kind of interns at the store. I hope I kept my receipt.
