I use a cream called Armour Etch, works great, leave it 5 minutes then wipe it off, careful not to get any on your skin the stuff is strong.

Where did you get that vinyl film that had the Porsche logo in it and how did you apply it? That's very very cool and I'd like to learn that for some various applications.

I have a vinyl cutter, I cut the drawing like I was going to make the decal but instead of removing the surroundings I removed the inside.

Wow, so you peeled back each individual "white space" area where the glass shows through? That must have been pretty tedious work! Mad props man, came out great!


PS: Nice Think Pad, my whole family basically works for IBM. I interned there twice but I branched out after college lol!

Yeah specially where it says STUTTGART the letters were so small it was a PITA.

Thanks my brother used to work for IBM in NY that's why I got my first Think Pad this is my 3rd since then. They are very good.

Alright, who's going to be the first one to etch the Toyota symbol with devil horns into their windshield?

You know someone is going to try it.
