    this thought of putting stripes on the punto's body keeps on popping in my mind.have never seen a punto with such stripes.......

    anyone here has done such mod??

    what would be the pros and cons????? i mean the aftermath of putting these stripes....??any harm on the original body's paint??

    vinyl strips dont damage the paint. they can be removed even unlike the radium stickers, but the problem is that these are not that greatly vibile in low light like at night, and that particular part of the paint where these stickers are put up does not fet faded or dull along with paint on other part of the body

  6. the remainin part of the paint would look faded and the part from where you removed the stickers would look fresh.
    a good dose of buffing would be a near match though. this dullling is more in darker colours..

    btw
    i have somethiing like this in my mind

    Paint fade is definitely an issue here since the car will be exposed almost daily to the 'kind' Delhi sun.

    Re-stripe would be the only solution if paint fade is noticeable post stripes removal.

    But hey, post removal, the not-faded area will present a natural stripe look. :p
