Does acetone actually remove bumper stickers without damaging a car’s paint job?
Because if so I may need to purchase a few tubes for parking lot use.
It appears to have removed the bumper, so I wouldn’t recommend it….
I’m guessing it will strip the clear-coat; just a guess though. Hair dryers work great, but might be a problem in a parking lot.
Seeing as acetone is normally CLEAR, and the goo is purplish, I am guessing it is indeed taking the paint job with it.
I’d say in that quantity it’ll do a fine job of taking the bodywork back to bare metal, if it’s actually metal to begin with.
Ultra car is reasserting his position as a grade-A asshole after all. He’s not going to go out of his way to use a solution that merely removes the stickers and leaves everything else intact. He’s just going to nuke the whole thing.
Later on, I believe Ethan brings up the subject of his missing blue car to Ultra Car. So, I would say Acetone will destroy your car.
wonder what would happen if u stuck bumper stickers on ultracar
The universe would be sucked into the assholiness singularity that was created by a bumper-stickered Ultra Car, obviously.
yes, acetone WILL destroy a paint job. It won’t destroy the entire car though.
What did you try? Probably not but I”m the type of person who would, then: INSTANT REGRET.
In high enough concentrations it dissolves plastic.
And a lot of exterior panels are made out of plastic these days … and there’s a good chance it’ll damage rubber, such as in the tyres, door/tailgate/glass seals, exhaust hanger, suspension components…
I think you can see where this is headed.
Also the light clusters, rubbing strips, license plate…
Acetone is like real life dip isn’t it?
If you need to remove bumper stickers from your car, I’d recommend a two-stage process:
1) Get some detergent soap, wash the sticker and the area around it with detergent and water.
2) Put a tiny amount of gasoline in a bowl, and grab a paintbrush. Paint the gasoline on the stickers, and within an hour or two it should all be ready to come off.
WD-40 works wonders on sticky residues, as well. It should do the trick just as easily.
Hmmm… Where would one place the bumper stickers if they didn’t have a car?
they are called “T-Shirts”
on your ass. bringing the analogy kind of full circle.
I see Ultra-Car is the vehicular version of Mike? Why is this not surprising to me?
Ultra Car, you beautiful cybernetic automobile, I could kiss you if you had lips!
Mikey and this car would get along smashingly
Every problem can be solved with a bit of ‘cetone.
