The reason they are placed on the inside, is that if they were placed on the outside, every sticker would get peeled off once the overspray film was removed. If you're insistent on the sticker being removed, I do apologize if there was any residue left over and I will make a note to ensure that the stickers stay inside the window lines for easy of applying the window masks and painting.
Very bad with 1/12 body
Window very small, it on inner body where you need to paint.
May be it is possible to place stickers at wheel place?

Love the New Mazda 6 GX, could you make a Nissan Altima TC Body, modeled after the Aussie V8 Supercar?

That's a good idea. If my hobby shop can't get the sticker off while I'm there I won't be buying protoform any more. Bad for protoform. Bad for hobby shop.

Nope, just the prototype that looked like it was cut on a cnc.

Still hoping among many others locally and in the US to see a Corvette C7 with realism like the Trans Am for USGT and similar classes.

How about an interior for the VTA cars?
It would be great if it came without a drivers head molded in, but an option of either a drivers head with an open face helmet or the full face.

And why would it be bad if the sticker was peeled off by the end customer as part of removing the overspray mask? The sticker has done its job by telling me I'm buying a genuine PF body and making it harder for counterfeits to be in the supply chain. After I've made the purchase it serves no legitimate purpose.

I frequently tint or mask my windows so I will always be peeling these off and if they leave behind residue or are otherwise a nuisance to remove it counts strongly against your otherwise great product.

Most of the bodies I paint are "one color wonders", and are replaced after about 4-6 weeks. FWIW, I really couldn't care less if the sticker is there or not, but I see everyone's point about the glue being "a little TOO good". Placing the sticker inside a wheel arch cutout seems to be a good compromise...

I guess it depends on the intent of the sticker. Is it to prove authenticity to the purchaser? Or is it for advertisement? I'd like to see the sticker moved to a less conspicuous location.

91% rubbing alcohol removes the glue once the decal has been peeled from the lexan. Took all of 2-3 minutes to remove the residue...

Can't wait to see how well the GX works once it's released...
