If you want to take it off I am sure a strong solvent or Acetone would take it off...................................07.......................................

I've never been a big fan of white lettering on my tires, but you did a great job.

Looks good, how about a full car shot though so we can see the full effect???
I asked him about that in a PM! It is in the winter storage mode right now, so we will have to be patient!

Nice job, 07!

Thanks old buddy.Oldimp is right.I have it up on stands right now.I will make a mental note of it and do it when I am ambitous enough.I have 2 large pictures in my garage,a red 2007 Shelby and a 2006 red Ford GT.The letters are painted on the GT and they look really cool so I did my Shelby like that.Come to find out the Ford GT doesn't come like that either someone painted those on then took the picture.............07.........................

I think it looks good...if it came with it I would not change it but I do like all black I think easier to take car of but the more I look at it have to admit growing on me :)

Your rims look perfect did you get the problem fixed or just replace ?

How about Torch Red letteing. I remember my 1967 Olds. 442 came with red lettering on the rubber! Food for thought if you like that look.

I only worked 10 hours today so I came home put the rear wheels back on,took it off the jack stands and pulled the beast out of the garage.It's suppose to be a nice week and I can't take it any more, I have to drive it while I can.It's dark out but the flash worked pretty good.I took these for all of you that wanted the full effect so here you go.What do you think?

Car looks great, but the bare trees are boggling my mind. It's only September.

I think it gives the car a more retro look. Very nice.

My pickup has raised white letters. To clean them I use Wesley’s Bleach White. I don’t know if it will remove tire paint. Just in case you want to try and clean them before a repaint.
