    Planning on running by Home Depot tomorrow after church to pick up a couple cans and hopefully trying this tomorrow. I'll post up some pics if I'm able to do it.

    Best advise I can give Erik is clean the surface with windex and apply a very light first coat. Almost so light that it doesn't cover your decal very much. Let it dry 15-20 mins and apply second coat a tad bit thicker, so forth and so on till you get to your desired look, prolly 4-5 coats, each coat that you apply add it on a little thicker. Shake can real good and stay about 6 inches away while spraying. First time I did it and messed up I got to close and sprayed to heavy thus getting a drip like look. 6 inches and light coats. NO WORRIES thou cause if you mess it up it comes off real easy. Give me a call if you need any verbal help!

    Yeah that DID NOT happen today. I underestimated the tediousness of taping the letters off. I was an hour into taping and only had about half of the first side done. Patience is not one of the things I was blessed with and I think it would be best to spray these before they are stuck on the boat. Wish I had thought of this last summer when I got the letters replaced.

    no brother, shouldn't have taken you that long. some long stripes of blue painter tape around the letters than cover up a bit around for the over spray. but even with over spray it comes right off with a wet microfiber towel. don't let it intimidate ya kid!!

    You forgetting about all the intricacies between letters and spaces inside the O's and B's. I'm a perfectionist so that is part of the problem...

    you don't tape around around the letters thou. just tape a box around the letters and spray the whole thing. them with a tooth pick you peel around/between the letters. when you peel the plasti away it will peel off the letters then you tooth pick in between letters. let me try and find the video, may make more sense that way
