Hey dj,

Sorry about what happened there. It's painful to even look at.

Also, I'm not sure how and with what you wash your car, but that could be directly related since the cold temperatures you are experiencing are pretty ridiculous.

Unfortunately, I, honestly, don't have a solution for your current issue...but, I'm just worried that your other stripe might end up doing the same thing. Isn't that mod a winter mod? I don't know if the vinyl stripe has a curing time or a temperature requirement....

Maybe one of the other folks out there who have had this mod done can provide some assistance.

Wow, in your garage it's 70 degrees F???...are you using a portable heater? OR is your garage suited up like some of the other guys out there??

I can tell you mine is likened to an ice bucket...burrrrr...freakin' cold!

Well, let us know how it goes!

Well, your only option is to put a new sticker on, or else you will have the only boxster with clear coat peeling. Ive never seen one, these cars are loved and cherised so you dont see them in the same shape as an astrovan.

So I cant tell, was this Clear Coat Delamination that pulled away when the decal was removed or was it just residue from the decal?

Ouch! very sorry to hear/see your situation.
it's hard to tell from the picture, but is it the clear or a layer of paint coming off?

Porsche paint is known to be more fragile than most. That's why road nicks are such a big issue for P-cars. I had a bit of bird**************** that was on my paint all day in October, and by the time I rinsed it off, it had left a little pit.

Sorry to hear about that. You are going to need that repainted and clear coated if you want it right.
