    Default Magnetic Door Signs

    The Mrs has just gone self-employed as a mobile hairdresser and she does have a good client base already but advertising is always good so was looking at some magnetic door signs like these

    Are they damaging to paint / electronics in the doors?

    I have a mate who used to use these for his Taxi and they made quite a mess which I had to sort out for him. After I polished the car back up again I found that if you make sure the area is spotless and has a decent coat of wax on it, it can seriously lower the damage that happens and also if you can help it try not to keep taking the signs off and on to regulary

    Paint fade is the only problem i've heard of with these things. The sun fades the paint on show but under the sign is good as new!! A machine polish usually does the trick though. Plus if the area ain't clean then scatches can occur

    I sometimes use them on my taxi, I only put them on if the car is clean and give them a quick wipe with a baby wipe and them dry with mcd's paper towels. Mine have not damaged the paint but I put them on the lower part of the front doors so it would be less obvious is a mark is made.

    I made these magnetic signs last summer when I was working. They shouldnt do any damage to the car so long as you put it on a clean car and make sure theres no dirt on the back of the magnetic itself.


    They look ood when on the car, just make sure you take them off and clean them regularly and you should be fine
