    Whenever I watched Johnny Dangerously years ago, I always wondered why cars didn't have paint similar to shelf paper that you could just peel off and replace.

    *** that. Nothing is more lame than some douche bag advertising their business all over their car and I'm sure as hell not going to plaster my car with advertisements. I have zero bumper stickers on my car and one tiny Campagnolo decal on my roof rack.

    "That wasn't me officer, you're looking for a red car, mine is blue."

    Also, I have yet to see actual photos. The first generation of this will probably look like crap. Remember the first prismatic paint? 90&#37; of the vehicle looks a muddy, ugly, brown, and you catch one little section moving across the car as it drives by that's a normal color.

    If this is an OEM paint, I can just imagine what the insurance companies will want to charge for collision coverage. lol

    I would imagine the cheapest would be an entire car a single shiftable color. As for advertising, you'd need an extremely expensive and large electrode array, something like a flexible bendable LCD.

    I think I'll put some Dr. Pepper emblems all over my car and sit it in front of your house.

    Jules... What I meant was for trucks and such not private auto`s... I agree with ya I hate almost anything except a nice clean single color paint job... I want to remove the Dmax & HD2500 badges from my truck but a bit worried the paint might come off with them but might try it with a heat gun...? Would even remove the trim molding but then would have to part in BFE so idiots would`nt ding the heck out of it...

    PottedMeat... That is already a reality its just a fixed color but very cool...

    Heat gun and fishing line. Then use some goo gone to clean up the residue. Do it before a wash/wax though as you'll strip any wax off the area.
