    If your coolant expansion tank needed to be replaced, would you have it refinished or replaced? Mine has created a few bubbles on the paint.

    Take it off and have a local powder coating place do it. Then order a new sticker
    Allsaid in done maybe 75-100 vs 400 for a new one.

    If your gonna do it yourself use a chemical stripper and a red 3m scuff padd. And pick up a can of Semi gloss engine paint. Don't need sandpaper will not work that way. Start with a clean fresh surface and the job will be that much better.

    Ricambi used to have some reproduced stickers until some dumb arse commented that the ... font is not spaced correctly and Daniel got pissed and "dumped" the whole lot in the garbage. Thank you dumb arse.

    My comment was meant to be snarky as I did not expect anyone who would consider replacing a coolant tank because of a "bubble" in the paint to have the slightest clue about handling the complex task of using a rattle can of paint.

    just that dealerships don’t like to get involved with ordering decals. I don’t think they always appreciate an owners desire to maintain originality.

    At one time Ford use to have their part number on the decal. They may still for all I know. There again a coworker had to convince them to order one.
