So, Im headed out on an trip and I want to protect the front end but dont want a bra or clear tape. Found a company that can to it, but need some ideas. Was thinking some german colors and the audi logo mixed in with some other cool shit. Or, just go with the Captain America thing I have going on which is the theme of my blog (no pitch, just thought it might help you, help me Gibbs' Exodus).
Just gonna to the front end and taper it up onto the hood then take it off when Im done the trip.
Her is the design I made.
Please note: Im really not very skilled with photo apps. Took me about 4 hours to make, so be kind.

did you have to do anything special when you took it off, in terms of residue.
BTW, nice man cave, heres mine. Maybe we can get a little man cave thread going on here:

am I allowed to post Porsche pics here? I dont want to bend the thread in the wrong way, since we've got it going in a man cave direction now anyway.
And to be honest, I have ONE picture of my Porsche. Its on the to-do list in the next couple of days since Im headed out on my trip.
But its a black on grey 1997 993, chrome package, Sound package, white dials, all original. And only 28K on it. Its actually up for faux-sale, meaning that Im not really selling it but I will if the right guy and price comes along. It has to end up in the right hands. It is meticulously cared for and her name is Inga, if you know anyone hard up for a 993.
Maybe this will work: (having problems loading images)

getting ideas back from the tape guys, but apparently, Im better at graphic design then they are. Perhaps Ive found my new calling. This is the latest design that I did. Will post final pics when I make a decision, which for me, as a perfectionist is hard.

Only some of it's free. And the parts that aren't, I have no problem endorsing. I needed some stuff to fill in the blanks.
