White shoe polish on window--question.

I am going to try to sell one of my cars now that I have the 135. I am thinking about putting a huge for sale sign on the back window with white shoe polish. Is this a good idea? Will this be easy to remove later? All help is much appreciated. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

My experience from autocrosses is that it is a pain to get off of the rubber seals around the windows. Easy to get off otherwise.

They sell some stuff for marking windows at autoparts stores that comes off a little easier.

I was using shoe polish at the drag strip for a while, and you could still see it on the trim years later. The other stuff didn't seem to do that.

I'm going to look into that autoparts store stuff. I may avoid this whole fiasco and just go with some white tape.

If you are serious about selling the car, nothing does it better than custom vinyl graphics that you can get made at any sign shop.

Probably $50 or so, but IMHO makes a much stronger selling statement than shoe-polish.
