Re: Hexayurts- how to remove the logos on my Xci 286?

Logo on shiny side, white no shiny or logos on the other. so, unfortunately logos on the outside unless we can remove them, paint them or co-apt them in to other arty things.

Hexayurts- how to remove the logos on my Xci 286?

Building lots of hexayurts tomorrow. Ended up on Hunter XCI 286 panels. Anybody ever tried to get the logos off? we were going to try acetone, but I don't want to screw up the coating.

Would love thoughts/experiences- otherwise will experiment tomorrow :)

Re: Gifting question, opinions please...

I agree with many that leaving the original labels on something of that nature is wise. I would feel more comfortable with a sealed container. I would also love if you went the extra mile and did a sticker or something clever to it.

I think it's a great gift. Keep up the good work.
