I might want to put temporary hood and unit markings on my Jeep for a parade. What paint can I use that I can remove after the parade without taking off the original paint? _________________ Gary

Find some water colors - generally found at hobby stores (Hobby Lobby, Michael's etc.)... stuff the kids would paint with. you can get it in thicker paints and should do for that - then wash it off after the parade... _________________ Hal, KB1ZQ

If you have a nice sunny day, and only need it for a couple of hours, why not a quick hand-stencil or masking tape job with some sidewalk chalk? Maybe a little Elmer's Glue (water base) mixed in. The average American won't know the difference anyway.....
Or maybe one of those washable big white crayon markers the used car lots and the "just married" folks use to write on their cars? Available at most auto parts stores me thinks.
Outside the box. Good luck! _________________ Ron D.
