    Removing the grey strip?

    Ok, Ive put a picture on the front of my SN45G, but the fat grey strip spoils it.



    What could I use to remove this? With out scratching the perspex?

    Thanks

    Seriously, i really like that front. It makes me want to get a shuttle just for its changable face

    Lets hope XTR or one of the lads can help you out with it, would love to se a full Unreal front !

    This is about half way through, the XPC logo was already gone and the green strip coming off nicely all with the aid of toothpaste .

    Stryder did a similar thing there. (about 3/4 way down).

    Yes, start with the shuttle logo, place a little toothpaste on the logo and use the cloth to rub pretty hard in one direction and it'll slowly remove.

    The stripe requires harder scrubbing and more of it.
