Seriously, you're going to need a bigger bottle I guess ?
If it doesn't harm the red vinyl I could try it...

... and as you could read on the un-du webpage, it was even used in an episode of CSI Miami, what more could we ask  Grin

Mmmm, checked the video's on the website (www.un-du.com) looks pretty impressive but that seller..... Grin

They won't ship the stuff outside the US though, you have a local source ?

One thing I noticed in the FAQ:
Will un-du affect plastics?
un-duŽ is safe on most plastics but you should always test first.

So...that's what we'll need to do....

Also.....this will be a HELL lot of work. I was already heaving headaches about how to get them off without damaging the vinyl. Let's hope this is really as magic as they claim.

Would be great Smiley

Another thought: once we have the stickers off they have to be

a) directly stuck to Chris's cab

or

b) put on a used adhesive backing that is large enough to make it possible to transport it, at least I hope that would work.
And then I had to think of my HUGE Ms.Pac stickers....one of those sides should be able to carry both MB stickers...

But this means that I'll have to do the Ms.Pac first....

Of course I'll help (meaning playing in your SW cockpit while you test dangerous products on your beautiful Nintendo cab)!
About transportation, I think wax paper should do the trick.
I'm trying to locate some un-du in the area (already found some in a scrapbook webshop from France).
Wow, thanks already for even considering the option!  Space Ace

so i guess i need to help you with the mrs pac first then  Wink

clean, fill the dents, sand it and strip the t-moulding from that b#tch  Grin

(might as well strip it complete and do a complete overhaul on your 2e grail...)

LOL  Cheesy

Well I think this is beneficial for both parties , at least I hope  Grin

OK so we put Ms. Pac to Nr.1.....

Yes my plan was already to fully strip her.... Grin
Handiest to work on it that way...I can do all the prepping and then we can arrange a date to do the Ms. Pac stickers (sure need some help with these Smiley ) and right after that the Nintendo sticker removal surgery.

...or if the wax paper will work then we don't Need do the Ms. First...

Chris do you think the stickers will still be sticky enough once you return home with it. Not sure if you still need to store it some time ? Is it a stupid idea to bring your MB here and do the transplant with both patients present ?

Just thinking out loud here...

One more note: It's festival and concours time with the drum band which means extra rehearsals and of course performance days.

So progress can be a bit slow...

Which is a good thing in this case because it gives me some extra time.
As soon as I will receive the un-glu, I will test it on my Mario Bros stickers and let you know.
About bringing my cab, that's not a problem, the more the merrier  Wink

never heard of that stuff, but it looks convincing (don't all promo videos do?) and i would have needed stuff like that on stickers before.

@chris: where are you going to order yours? i'd love to have a bottle of it as well!

all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

I found a scrapbook shop in France already (but it was too expensive) so I'm still looking for one in Belgium that has it.
I will spare one bottle for you of course.
It might come handuy too when I'll decide to apply that Mario Bros CPO too by the way  Wink

remember that andre's machine is not a widebody, so the CPO will probably not fit....

Count me in, (als ik jullie niet teveel voor de voeten loop Wink). I really want to see how you apply the sticker and if it's something for my ms pac.
