I`m thinking of getting rid of the yellow and white sunvisor decal...one way or another.

I`ve seen YT videos on removing it and posts on CF, but all seem to leave some sort of trace, be it adhesive or a slightly different colour. I`m thinking of getting a decal made to cover it. I`m assuming a professional sign shop would be able to do this, but have not contacted them yet to see if it would work. I made some variations in photoshop. My headliner is the light gray one.
What are your thoughts on doing this and which one would you choose. Constructive suggestions are welcome.

Easiest solution would be to cover them with a decal like the ones I made in photo shop. I`ll add some more of just the Badge.

Excalibur, I got some made online as soon as I find info I'll send you if you'd like.
They can make all sizes and colors. These were about $10.

Morganga, those look great! Please do post the info. I will be contacting a sign company about the project. I`d appreciate feedback on the designs.

Not trying to be a [email protected]$$, but Avery makes a whole variety of different size labels. If you went to Staples you could pick the appropriate size (or a bit larger and then cut it down) and laser-print your decal design, stick that over the Gouvernement du Canada stuff, and if you really want to protect it put some clear Maptac over it. If you don't have a laser printer, any office supply or shipping place like the UPS Store will print it out for you on a laser. Show us your final solution - I bet you and I aren't the only folks that dislike those useless stickers!

That`s an idea! I just don`t know if Staples would be able to cut it well enough to dimensions, and I don`t have a trimmer sharp enough to do a professional job. It would also have to have the corner`s rounded to the same dimensions as the ugly sticker.

I was thinking that the script alone would suffice over the label and you could put an emblem decal on the vanity mirror covers.
I'll be waiting for info as well.
I would really like to do the emblem on the mirror covers.

answer the question senator.... what is the size of the sticker, and what is it made of? or are you trying to hide the facts from this forum? LOL

Sorry I'm lost, who is "moreweed"? If it's me, the stickers are made of vinyl and you can choose your size and backing, color of lettering etc. And how the heck did you get moreweed form Morganga?
Auto correct can be very telling :ROFLMAO:
