noticed they've gone over the 'golf' lettering etc, is that necessary, didn't think there was a lip or indent at all? i want to take off the lettering on the back, but i don't want to have the boot filled and sprayed! was hoping they could be taken off and given a good clean to take off the collected grime.

its going to look super smooth and clean! looking forward to seeing the colour.

Rststevo; you can remove the lettering with a credit card quite easily by sliding behind it. After taking the glue off (hot water helps) give it a good polish and there are no marks left.

This looks like a very promising project, looking forward to seeing the end result.

One observation though, lose the roof spoiler, IMO they detract from the cars clean smooth lines.

rststevo: you can remove the letters - there is no indentation. Sometimes you may need to polish the area a little because the letters are still visible because of dirt. I've done it and you can't tell.
