I love clear... on old bikes i clear the single lights and they look like new. I even use it on cars with sun burnt plastic, i use water sand paper first.

Depends, what truck you got?

I have close to a 1000 stickers now and they would be good enough for 2 bikes (naked bikes with not a lot of plastic).
For my Ford F150 XLT, I would need at least 10,000 of them..

You are better off creating a BIG-ASS Photoshop file with all your favorite logos, companies, slogans, mottos, mascots or whatever floats your boat and get that sheet "Wrapped" around your truck. I do know they cost anything between $300 to $600 for regular sized cars depending on the material design etc. If you can buy the roll and get it printed for cheap, you can do it yourself too..

Check this video out. Just imazine the wrap having hundreds of logos of your favorite brands etc..

Rear fender done too. Only front fender left as far the plastic parts go.

Tank is another story. The Paint stripper I am using isnt bubbling it up enough to peel right off. Ant ideas anyone?
What stripper would be good for getting rid of paint on metal gas tanks? I do reiterate.... I AM CHEAP, so best cheapest product should do

Why bother stripping the paint if you're just going to cover it with stickers? Just clean it well and apply the stickers over the paint.
