Hey there, I'm getting ready to complete the purchase on a '99 C36 MKII. One of my projects will be to change the name. Other than the ritual involved I need to remove the old name from the side and add the new name. Does anyone have any advice on taking off the old vinyl lettering in such a way that you don't injure the gel coat or leave a shadow? Also, I have been looking online at several websites that offer custom vinyl lettering. This seems to be the way to go. A couple questions:
1. Does anyone recommend a company for this, that has an online custom tool?
2. What should be the height of the letters for the typical mounting location on a C36 (side of the hull toward the stern).
3. Any other tips?
When going through the customizer at www.doityourselflettering.com, on first try I have 8.27"H x 36" wide, selecting the premium 3M Cast Vinyl. Is reflective better/must have?
Thanks again for the advice!
