    Oh and on the bubbles in the paint means there was some
    kind of dirt on it when painted and the paint did not stick
    I dont think using a hairdryer is going to make them go away.
    Your better to get stuff painted locally that way if you have problems you can go back and get it fixed.
    The bubbles aren't in the paint. When Modern Garage has eyelids painted, they also have a clearbra treatment applied. It's a clear layer that protects it. They said clearbra usually has tiny bubbles in it, but after a little time in the sun they will go away. I've had these sitting out of the box for about 48 hours, and the black piece that was under the clear bar is much smaller now, but still there.

    I'm still thinking about using a hairdryer on it. I'll see what modern garage says.

    What my cousins and I did was take a hair dryer to it, which will make the adhesive nice and soft. Then we used dental floss to take off the letters. The remaining adhesive was removed with a microfiber cloth, a little more heat from the hair dryer, and Goo Gone. After that, I put a couple coats of wax on and buffed out the remaining outline of the letters
